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.

IAE highlights Africa’s role in shaping global energy trends

The International Energy Agency (IEA) highlights Africa’s role in shaping global energy trends in its Africa Energy Outlook 2019, https://www.iea.org/africa2019/. The report concludes that Africa in 2040 could meet the energy demands of an economy four times larger than today’s with only 50% more energy. Better access to energy will be key in achieving growth but it requires investments. If policy makers put a strong emphasis on clean energy technologies solar PV could become the continent’s largest electricity source in terms of installed capacity by 2040.
