Energy decision makers have participated in Energy Week Morocco, Investment opportunities in the gas sector and dedicated renewable energy events in northern and western Africa.
Decision makers in the energy sector met in Marrakech on 14 and 15 November 2018 to attend the "Energy Week Morocco", a forum on gas sector investment opportunities and renewable energy in North Africa. And west.
Aziz Rebbah, Minister of Energy, Mines and Sustainable Development, emphasized in this forum that current and future energy issues in African countries can only be met within a broad and mutually beneficial cooperation framework.
The minister said the cooperation could take many forms, bilateral, triangular or multilateral, including African and international organizations and regional international donors.
Rabbah reminded of this meeting that Africa has all the assets to overcome this energy problem, including the potential for renewable energy that unfortunately remains undeveloped.
The minister also reviewed the strategic energy policies of the royal kingdom, including the use of new technologies to upgrade the renewable energy of the national energy mix. , Other types of renewable energy development, including the integration of biomass in energy mix, strengthening energy efficiency programs through participation in the public sector, and developing water mixes through energy facilities. water conversion.
And the success of Morocco energy conversion, including the development of the natural gas sector, is a result of strong political will, clear, realistic and quantified energy strategies, attractive projects and legislative reforms. Integration of energy markets and networks and national sectoral policies Adhere to the appropriate regulation of regional vision for convergence with.
Boubacar Mbodji, Special Advisor to President Senegal in the field of environment and energy, noted that the realization of the pipeline launched by Nigeria and Morocco will stimulate a dynamic atmosphere with structured projects. African countries linked by this gas pipeline pointed out that this project is part of a huge project called "Autoroutes d 'Energies" in Africa.
Secretary General Enderrahim El Hafidi pointed out that Africa is an energy giant and has energy. He has both fossils and great potential for renewable energies, but he also has one of the lowest rates in the world, he explained. There is not enough energy infrastructure to use the most expensive means to produce energy.
However, Morocco and many other countries have been prepared to produce the cheapest kW of Morocco and have been able to solve energy problems and achieve energy conversion based on the concrete results of the strategy for renewable energy. Among these clean energy, African countries have all the "ingredients" they need to meet all the constraints associated with energy conversion, he said.
The Secretary General of the Energy Efficiency Directorate of Morocco (AMEE) stressed that African countries should focus on energy efficiency. The project was carried out in the energy field.
The Summit includes two African renewable energy forums and gas options for Northern and West African investment conferences, as co-sponsored by the Energy Secretary, Mine and Sustainable Development and EnergyNet.
The event is a unique opportunity for meeting and sharing among the most active public and private, domestic and international stakeholders, generally in the energy and gas and renewable energy sectors.
