1.2. Nuclear fuel: Morocco has very large amounts of uranium in its phosphates. Solar energy programme: Launched In November 2009, this programme, which is worth US$9 billion, will involve five solar power generation sites across Morocco and will produce 2000 MW of electricity by the year 2020.
In 2017, fossil fuels accounted for more than 80% of Morocco’s electricity generation mix, and renewable energy (wind 9%, hydroelectricity 5%, and solar 1%) accounted for most of the rest. Morocco plans to reduce its dependence on foreign imports by developing renewable energies to meet domestic electricity needs.
Installed Capacity and Generation 11.5% of generation came from renewable sources (mainly hydro, then wind and others) in 2013, while 38% was based on coal, 18.4% on natural gas and 14.3% on oil.
Morocco holds 684,000 barrels of proven oil reserves as of 2016, ranking 97th in the world and accounting for about 0.000% of the world’s total oil reserves of 1,650,585,140,000 barrels.
As of 2016, countries including Australia , Austria , Denmark , Greece , Ireland , Italy , Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Portugal and Serbia have no nuclear power stations and remain opposed to nuclear power.
By far the largest nuclear electricity producers are the United States with 809,359 GWh of nuclear electricity in 2019, followed by France with 382,403 GWh.
For Morocco there are two associated plug types, types C and E. Plug type C is the plug which has two round pins and plug type E is the plug which has two round pins and a hole for the socket’s male earthing pin. Morocco operates on a 220V supply voltage and 50Hz.
Despite its economic progress, 4 million Moroccans remain in poverty and live on less than $4 a day. Poverty in Morocco remains an issue. Recognizing the poverty crisis in Morocco is essential to alleviating it; such a feat is possible through providing facts about poverty in Morocco to the public.
