Morocco’s Energy Ministry has announced a tender to hire a consultant for a detailed study on biomass sector development in the country.
The study will provide the state a thorough review of possible sector development roadmaps in the short (2016-2020), middle (2021-2025) and long (2026-2030) term perspective, thus aiding the elaboration of a national strategy on the sector development.
According to the specifications of the tender, published last week, biomass will be developed with priority in three sectors: agriculture, forestry and waste management.
The study consultant will have to define a portfolio of investment projects and the different ways that the state can promote their development.
Morocco has already started major goals for solar and wind power development. The country wants to source 42% of its energy needs from renewables by 2020 and has undertaken an integrated programme to increase its wind and solar power capacities to 2 GW each by 2020.
