  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Energy Directorate of the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment (MEMEE) plays a central role in the implementation and coordination of the energy policy. It supervises the activities of the centres and offices in charge of energy resources (except hydroelectricity), of refineries and of the national oil product distribution companies, as well as of the production-distribution ...

  • Energy Supply


    The country's fossil fuel resources are very limited (crude oil and gas reserves estimated at 1 mbl and at 1 bcm, respectively). However, renewable resources are important. The solar potential is highly significant, with an average solar radiation of 5.5 kWh/m²/d (compared to 2.5 kWh/m²/d in Europe and 3.6 kWh/m²/d in the USA). Moreover, it has abundant wind resources, estimated by AMEE at ...

  • Energy Prices


    The price of electricity is US14c/kWh for industry and US11c/kWh for households. Prices have dropped by about 15% for industry and 9% for households since 2011. It is assumed that electricity prices in Morocco do not represent real costs as they are below the average costs of production and transmission.


  • Energy Consumption

    Per capita energy consumption is 0.6 toe, including 874 kWh of electricity (2015).


    Total energy consumption has been increasing rapidly since 2003, by an average of 5%/year, reaching 19.5 Mtoe in 2015, but decreased slightly in 2016 to 19.4 Mtoe.


  • Issues & Prospects

    According to the Ministry of Energy, 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.
