At the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, here are Dénes Csala, Lecturer in Energy Storage Systems Dynamics at Lancaster University and Sgouris Sgouridis, Associate Professor of Engineering Systems and Management, Masdar Institute bringing us the good news in this article published by The Conversation . We reproduce excerpts not only for their obvious narrative but also for their dissemination character to which we would like to think we are contributing. According to Renewable Energy, this is generated from natural resources such as the sun, wind, and water, using technology which ensures that the energy stores are naturally replenished. The MENA countries having missed earlier Industrial Revolutions, is known to be at present preparing for the forthcoming fourth one with varying degrees of assiduity. Generally, it is those petro economies that from amongst the lot are doing best as witnessed by the jump forward of the Masdar City project and 100% renewable by 2050 for most countries is already top of all government agendas in Europe and Asia. Is it the case for all other countries of the MENA region?
Further to our “Something” could happen on the Paris Agreement, here is what could be a follow on variation on the same theme but this time with a comforting feel that after all our future will not depend on the whimsical behaviour of one individual but rather on the increasingly plummeting cost of renewable energy.
Morocco’s hard work to manage its economic future, despite the global economy continuing stagnation, has started to pay off as per this recent news that raised its profile and ranking amongst countries investing in renewable energies. Morocco’s Masen to lead renewables build-up means the country continues to lead all MENA countries in its investment in solar, wind, and hydro power projects.
According to Ernst and Young (E&Y), “Morocco is the most attractive green energy market in MENA, as several large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) and CSP projects have already entered the construction phase, and there are more solar tenders coming. On the subject meanwhile, an article of SeeNews Renewables by Mariyana Yaneva, was published on September 29th, 2016 under the title :
Morocco’s Masen to lead renewables build-up of 6,000 MW by 2030
The Moroccan Agency for Sustainable Energy or Masen has officially taken the lead for the development of an additional renewable energy capacity of 6,000 MW by 2030 . . .
