On the surface Morocco is a green energy giant, at least compared to its peers in the Mena region. Wind, solar and hydro power production hit a record high of 8.7TWh last year (see chart 1), up on 7.3TWh for 2020 and the previous record of 7.9TWh set in 2019. The record 2021 renewables figure represents a three-fold increase over the past decade and also equates to a fifth of total power generation.
