Vidican Auktor shows how Morocco uses its favourable conditions for energy generation from solar radiation and wind to reduce its enormous dependence from fuel imports, create employment and trigger technological learning. In 2011, the country was importing more than 95 per cent of its energy and its energy demand is expected to triple by 2030. Morocco’s government not only encourages foreign direct investment in solar and wind energy projects but also supports related skills development and the emergence of domestic supplier industries. Moreover, policymakers foster both high-tech investments in concentrated solar power plants and low-tech rooftop solar thermal and photovoltaic projects to develop various segments of the labour market.
