With market data and continuous follow-up of markets news, this report brings clear and concise insights with which to tackle national energy challenges and opportunities. Browse the tabs below for a detailed table of contents, the list of graphs and tables, and details on the data files.


  • Morocco has set an unconditional target of an 18.3% reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 and aims to achieve 80% of renewables in its power mix by 2050.
  • ONEE operates more than half of the power capacity and the electricity transmission network. IPPs must sell their production to ONEE.
  • Morocco is heavily dependent on imports.
  • Thermal capacities reached 62% of the power mix (2022).
  • Fuels and electricity prices in Morocco remained stable between 2022 and 2023.
  • Fuel prices were completely deregulated in 2015.
  • Oil accounts for nearly 58% of total energy consumption, while coal accounts for 32%.
  • Electricity demand is expected to increase by 6%/year by 2030 to 80 TWh.
  • Morocco has committed to a large number of renewable projects and is positioning itself as a pioneering African player in green hydrogen.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Sustainable Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development (MTEDD) plays a central role in the implementation and coordination of the energy policy. It promotes the energy savings policy, as well as the development of new energies and renewables.

    The Ministry of Economy and Finance is responsible for the taxation and financing of projects.

  • Energy Supply


    The country's fossil fuel resources are very limited (oil and gas reserves estimated at 0.1 Mt and at 1 bcm, respectively, at the end of 2022). However, renewable resources are important. The solar potential is high, with an average solar radiation of 6.5 kWh/m²/d (compared to 2.5 kWh/m²/d in Europe and 3.6 kWh/m²/d in the USA).

  • Energy Prices


    Until 2013, wholesale and retail margins were fixed by the government.

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2022, per capita energy consumption was 0.60 toe (compared to 0.88 toe in Egypt, 1.49 toe in Algeria, and 0.94 toe in Tunisia), including around 965 kWh of electricity (34% below the North Africa average).


  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the MTEDD, the country's energy needs will more than triple by 2030. Morocco aims to cover 52% of capacity from renewables in 2030. In its new Low Carbon Development Strategy for 2050, Morocco aims to generate 70% of its electricity from renewables in 2040 and 80% in 2050.
