ABSTRACT
The article reports on the future plans of Morocco to generate more than 40 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Presently, the country is the largest importer of energy in North Africa and buys 95 % of its power needs. By, the year 2020 the demand for power is expected to get double so the country is planning to make its own power plants using wind and solar power projects. A large number of international firms in the country are investing here to meet this demand.
