Morocco’s Agency for the Development of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ADEREE) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Germany’s Desertec Foundation for the development of solar farms in the North African country, reported BusinessGreen.
The two organizations plan to work together to develop a framework for the solar projects, which they noted will have the capability to transmit power to Europe. The MOU further aligns Desertec on the right path to accomplish a goal of constructing several large solar farms in North African countries, which would hold the potential to produce energy for both the domestic and European energy markets.
“Morocco is a not just a visionary in the region but also a successful pioneer in the global transition to renewables, where ADEREE plays a key role,” said Thiemo Gropp, director of the Desertec Foundation, in a statement. “We are very happy to support their work in this context.”
