“Morocco’s Determination to Sustain a Stable Energy Strategy”

Alalam24, Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development, Leila Benali, stated on Friday in Tangier that Morocco is committed to maintaining a stable energy strategy, engaged in a global framework for energy transition aimed at using energy for economic and social development

Benali affirmed, on the sidelines of her participation in the Medays Forum, that “Morocco, under the leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, launched its national energy strategy in 2009, aiming to enhance energy supply security and availability, along with widespread access to competitive prices”

In this context, Minister Benali considered that the ministry has initiated an incentive program to encourage final consumers to reduce their electricity consumption, in exchange for a government grant as an incentive for consumption reduction

Regarding regional energy integration, Minister Benali emphasized that Morocco is the only African country connected to Europe with electricity, gas, and logistics, highlighting Morocco’s unique position as a significant partner to the European Union

Furthermore, Benali stated that Morocco demonstrates this connection in the global carbon energy markets by promoting South-South cooperation

Regarding her participation in the Medays Forum within a panel discussion on “Energy and Geopolitics: What New Global Energy System?” the minister pointed out that this meeting was an opportunity to enhance discussions on energy strategies for different participating countries and explore new ways to achieve sustainable development goals

  1. In this context, she highlighted, “I spoke, for example, about the gas pipeline between Nigeria and Morocco, which, in addition to being a continental and intercontinental strategy between countries, primarily embodies a royal vision carrying the message of economic and social development to 13 African countries”

Benali explained that concerning continental integration, establishing markets that invest in and enhance African resources leads to economic and social growth, and also makes it possible to address security and migration issues

The exchange of experiences and exploring new areas of cooperation were the main topics of discussions between the Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development and her Malawian counterpart on the sidelines of this forum

Benali explained that in addition to establishing bilateral cooperation between Morocco and Malawi, these talks allowed for the examination of several issues related to energy transition, especially electric infrastructure and new methods for electrifying villages, including discussing the rural electrification program in Morocco

It is worth noting that the “Medays” Forum, organized under the high patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI by the Amadeus Institute from November 15 to 18, brings together more than 200 high-level participants, including heads of states, governments, political decision-makers, CEOs of major global companies, and high-profile international figures, with more than 5,000 participants from around a hundred countries
