Swedish radio on the solar park in Ouarzazate in Morocco

In Morocco, an energy revolution is underway. A record-fast expansion of renewable energy means that the country, as one of the few in the world, has a good chance of reaching the UN's climate target of maximum 1.5 degree increase.

In Ouarzazade, the sun shines more than 320 days a year. Here is the world's largest solar power plant. The investment in renewable energy makes the Moroccan economy more resilient as the dependence on imported oil decreases. There are plans to turn Morocco into an energy supplier for both African neighboring countries, but also for Europe.
