IEA supports Morocco’s decarbonization plan & energy transition

Morocco and the International Energy Agency (IEA) have signed a new cooperation program focusing on energy efficiency, energy security and climate resilience.

Under the 2022-2023 program, signed in Paris by minister of Energy Transition & Sustainable Development Leila Benali and IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol, the agency pledges to support Morocco’s decarbonisation program, deployment of renewable energies and plans set for hydrogen energy.

The IEA will provide Morocco assistance to advance low-carbon economy, reduce fossil fuel imports, achieve its renewable energy targets and honor its commitments outlined in the 2030 Energy Strategy.

The new IEA-Morocco cooperation program was sealed on the sidelines of the 2022 IEA ministerial meeting currently held in Paris under the theme: “Accelerating global action on clean energy and energy security”.

The two-day meeting is convened at a critical time for the global economy and energy markets in view of the Russia-Ukraine war and the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2022 IEA ministerial meeting will address the current urgent energy security challenges generated by the Russia-Ukraine war and geopolitical risks.

Governments from around the world are trying to ensure secure and affordable energy supplies, while implementing the commitments made at the COP26 held in Glasgow to cut global emissions.
