  • In 2030, the country aims to reduce its energy consumption by 15%, compared with a BaU scenario, and to reach 52% of renewables in its power capacity.
  • The electricity sector is partially liberalised, both for generation and distribution.
  • The National Electricity Office (ONEE) carries out most of the power generation and holds a monopoly on transmission.
  • An increasing share of the electricity production is provided by IPPs.
  • Since 2015, Morocco has added 2.5 GW of new power capacity, mainly from coal and renewables, and it became a net exporter of electricity in 2019.
  • Imports cover 100% of the oil and coal consumption and 90% of gas consumption.
  • Fuel prices decreased by around 10% in 2020. Morocco aims to limit the influence of global oil prices on its budget.
  • The growth in energy consumption has slowed since 2010 and is dominated by oil products, which account for around 60%.
  • Morocco plans to install more than 10 GW of renewables by 2030, of which 4.5 GW of solar, 4.2 GW of wind, and 1.3 GW of hydropower, to reach over 52% of renewables in the power mix.
  • Morocco plans to build a large infrastructure to improve imports of fossil fuels, in particular LNG.
  • Several renewable energy projects are still under development across the country.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Energy Directorate of the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Environment (MEME) 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 Finance is responsible for the taxation and financing of projects.

  • Energy Supply


    The national production of hydrocarbons is low. All the oil products are imported since the shutdown of the sole refinery of the country in 2015 (200 000 bbl/d). Oil product imports have increased rapidly since 2015 (+6%/year), to over 13 Mt in 2019.

  • Energy Prices


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

  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption is 0.6 toe (around 45% below the North Africa average), including around 900 kWh of electricity (38% below the regional average) (2019).


  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the MEME, the country's energy needs will more than triple by 2030. Morocco aims to cover 42% of its power capacity with renewable energy sources by 2020, and 52% in 2030.
