Morocco could see 100% green energy use by 2050

Morocco could run on 100 percent green energy by the year 2050, according to new research on the matter from Stanford University.

"100% Clean and Renewable Wind, Water, and Sunlight (WWS) AllSector Energy Roadmaps for 139 Countries of the World": the California-based institution studied the energy prospects of 139 countries to develop a feasible and hypothetical green energy scenario for each nation.

An optimal energy portfolio for Morocco would be composed of 65.6 percent solar energy, 29.7 percent offshore and onshore wind energy, 2.5 percent hydroelectric power and 2.1 percent additional marine energy, the California-based company’s analysis showed.
Going green would add 88,806 permanent full-time jobs to the workforce, adding $3.53 billion to the Moroccan economy every year.
