Morocco “has significantly increased the share of renewables over the past five years and has increased new renewable energy capacity,” wrote the survey. 

The survey noted that with the connection of Noor Solar Project, “the world’s largest solar plant and multiple new wind farms to the grid, the country is well on track for achieving its target of 42% installed renewable energy capacities by 2020 and 52% by 2030.”
