Morocco is the largest energy importer in North Africa, with limited resources of its own. It is carrying out exploration work in the offshore Atlantic and Mediterranean, as well as onshore in the hope of locating commercial reserves. Its location means that it has been well placed to be a transit state between Algeria and Spain for the Maghreb Europe Gas pipeline (Pedro Duran Farell).
The country has also been a regional pioneer in the development of renewable energy capacity, with plans to generate 10% of electricity from renewable sources by early next decade.
