RABAT, March 16, 2016

Morocco is planning a $40-billion investment programme in the energy sector for the next 15 years, including $30 billion for renewable energy, a report said.

The country has also designed $30 billion worth of water infrastructure during the same period, Abdelkader Amara, Minister of Energy, Mining, Water and Environment, was quoted as saying in The Namibian.

Morocco aims to secure 42 per cent of its energy mix from renewable sources by 2020, Amara said.

“Morocco and France worked hand-in-hand for the success of COP21, and continue to work closely to ensure the success of COP 22”, he added.
