Morocco Has Significant Experience In Renewable Energy, Belgian Ambassador In Rabat

Morocco has a significant experience in renewable energy, notably the ambitious energy strategy launched in 2009, said, on Friday in Rabat, Belgian Ambassador in Morocco Frank Carruet.

Morocco is continuing its efforts to reform the energy sector with the setting up of a regulator for the electricity market, the existence of decrees to have access to medium tension and the revision of the compensation mechanism, Carruet said at the opening of a seminar on "the Belgian experience in renewable energy".     

He also welcomed the national legal framework, namely the law 13-09, which allows the producers of renewable source-based electricity to sell directly to clients, who are connected to high and medium tension, and have access to the national electric network.

Regarding to the Belgian experience in this field, the Belgian ambassador noted that Belgium has an important place on the international scene in the promotion of renewable energy.
