    “Ouarzazate Solar Power Complex…went into operation in February 2016…[Once a filming location for Hollywood blockbusters like ‘Lawrence of Arabia,’ it] is now the location of the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant…It will supply [Morocco’s] more than one million people with electricity and avoid at least 730,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year…[Concentrated Solar Power (CSP)] is considered a future solution for producing renewable electricity [for Morocco, which now imports 90% of its energy…[Noor Ouarzazate is part of the national [four phase Noor Plan which] aims at the establishment of an electricity production capacity from the solar energy of 2000 MW by the year 2020. The project also includes training, technical expertise, research development and the promotion of an integrated solar industry. It is part of Morocco’s 2010-2030 energy strategy with the objective to improve the country’s energy security of supply to sustainably reduce the kingdom’s dependence on the imported oil and diversify production sources…” click here for more
