DREAM - DEVELOP - DELIVER
A Clean Energy Group with a Global Track Record
Since 1998, the UPC group has been operating in North Africa through its subsidiary UPC North Africa Renewables to develop large-scale wind and solar projects. Initially in Tunisia and in Morocco since 2008. UPC has entered the Moroccan wind market with an agreement with the Moroccan national utility , “L’Office Nationale de l’Electricité et de l’Eau” (“ONEE”), under the “Energy Pro” program, to develop two high potential wind energy sites and other Government Entities to develop a robust Renewable Business in Morocco.
UPC Morocco, through local subsidiaries, is now developing wind and solar renewable energy projects totaling more than 300 MW of projects under active development.
UPC’s first project in Morocco, Khalladi Wind Farm, is considered as the first utility scale wind energy project in Morocco. This project is one of the first to be developed under the 13.09 Renewable Energy law framework in 2010. Khalladi is a 120 MW wind project located in Jbel Sendouq-Khalladi, 50 Km east of Tangier and represents a critical first project in the development of wind projects in Morocco and will be completed in 2017.
Morocco has an excellent wind resource, which could support a thriving wind energy industry capable of delivering electricity at highly competitive prices with significant environmental benefits. Recent legislation and public support mechanisms demonstrate the Kingdom’s commitment to the development of renewable energy (wind and solar).
Morocco has made steady progress towards private sector participation in the electricity market.
