AMEA Power to construct 2 solar energy plants in Morocco
Morocco, which has planned some ambitious renewable energy projects to capitalize on its geographical area, has awarded a contract for the development of two solar energy projects to AMEA Power-- a UAE energy business. Both solar projects will be part of the very first phase of Noor PV II Programme. This programme will certainly feature multiple sites of solar PV development. The total capacity of the Noor PV II Programme will certainly be 330 MW. The Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (Masen) and the Ministry of Energy Transition and also Sustainable Development had provided a large international tender under which AMEA Power was granted the agreement. Hussain Al Nowais, Chairperson, AMEA Power claimed, "The Noor PV II programme sustains Morocco's target to increase its renewables share to 52 percent by 2030." Specifically, AMEA Power will certainly be responsible for the building of 2 solar plants each having a capacity of 36 MW. Both sites will certainly be found at Taroudant that hinges on the Souss-Massa region, and in El Hajeb that hinges on the Fes-Meknes region. AMEA Power explores both solar as well as wind energy. Presently, AMEA generates almost 2,000 MW of renewable energy from varied projects functional in 15 nations. AMEA Power has also planned to enhance its portfolio to 5,000 MW in the coming 3 years. AMEA Power is likewise developing a solar power project of 100MW in the North African country of Tunisia. In UNFCCC's Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris in 2015, Morocco introduced its commitment to raise the country's renewables capacity to 52% of the overall by 2030. Morocco wishes to include 10 GW of renewable power by 2030. For this, the nation is seeking to draw in a financial investment of concerning $30 billion. A significant project that has actually been recommended is the Xlinks Morocco UK project that envisages power exports from Morocco to the UK. Morocco has actually also prepared to develop an LNG plant for seamless supply of power in the nation. Masdar-- an additional Dubai based company-- is additionally buying renewables in Morocco. It has lately developed a Solar Home System Project that powers about 20,000 homes in over 1,000 rural towns of Morocco. An international consortium will start the development of a solar energy project of 800 MW. Masdar is additionally a part of this consortium.

Morocco Eyes 1.6 GW Renewables with $1.95 Billion Investment in Disputed Western Sahara Area
Morocco is emerging as the top performer when it pertains to the adoption of renewables and reducing making use of fossil fuels to create power. In a new development, Morocco has introduced a new project for renewable resource development in Western Sahara area with a massive investment of 20 billion dirhams ($ 1.95 billion). The statement was made by the nation's Minister of Energy Transition and also Sustainable Development, Dr. Leila Benali. The Western Sahara area is a huge desert territory under conflict. The Energy Minister of Morocco was pondering at a government session when she held that renewable resource projects are being executed in the region. They have a complete capacity of over 1.6 GW. The capacity represents concerning 36 percent of the complete capacity which is currently being established in Morocco. Dr. Benali said, "Renewable energy projects are obtaining wonderful rate of interest from Moroccan and also international financiers." Rabat is broadening its footprint in Western Sahara. The national government in October 2019 launched as many as 68 investment projects of greater than $6 billion and also held that virtually a 3rd of the projects were should be applied in Sahara. Morocco stopped working to reach its original target of 37% of renewable capacity by 2020. However, ever since, it has shown both better intent and also action, by first targeting a renewable share of 52% by 2030: 20% solar, 20% wind, and also 12% hydro power. British firm Xlinks is establishing a 10.5 GW solar-plus-wind project, combined with a battery storage space facility in Morocco. UAE based AMEA Power 2 solar projects as part of Noor PV II Program. India's NTPC too has authorized an MoU with Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy (MASEN) for common teamwork in the renewable energy industry. It will usher in the joint development of utility-scale RE projects.

6 Consortiums Pre-Qualified for Morocco's 400 MW Atlas Solar Plant
Morocco’s renewable energy agency, Masen, has announced the pre-qualification of six consortiums to construct a 400 MW solar plant in the Atlas mountains. Named Noor Midelt II, the project aims to strengthen the country’s renewable energy sector and reduce dependence on fossil fuels. The leading consortiums consist of renowned international companies such as Cobra Servicios, Communicaciones y Energia from Spain, EDF Renouvelables from France, Enel Green Power from Italy, Iberdrola Renovables International from Spain, International Power from Belgium, and Acwa Power from Saudi Arabia. The project will incorporate solar PV and concentrated solar power technologies and include a two-hour storage capacity for increased efficiency and reliability. Morocco plans to have 80 per cent of its energy supplied by renewable sources by 2050 and add 10 GW of renewable energy by 2030, with 4.2 GW from wind energy. Noor Midelt II is a significant step towards achieving this goal by utilizing the abundant solar resources in the Atlas Mountains. Which Companies Are Pre-Qualified for Morocco's Noor Midelt II Solar Project?
