Sustainable Energy Development at local levels: three of Morocco's Municipalities take up the challenge.

A Territorial Energy Policy Assessment for Morocco

In 2010-2011, on behalf of Morocco's National Agency for the Development of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Development (ADEREE) and with the support of GIZ, IDE-E conducted a Territorial Energy Policy Assessment, shedding light on "Opportunities for Local Authorities to support Sustainable Energy Development in Morocco." The study provided the basis for ADEREE to launch a Territorial Strategy on Sustainable Energy Development (Jiha Tinou 2020), focused on energy planning at municipal levels.

Counting with the joint support of theGerman Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ), the French Agency for the Environment and Energy Management (ADEME) and the Swiss Renewable Energy Platform for International Cooperation (REPIC), the ADEREE has mandated IDE-E to design, set up and coordinate the strategy's Pilot Cycle (2012-2014).
