Genesis Morocco

Project Genesis is a strategic sustainable development framework for Morocco to translate from being a net importer of energy and a country facing water shortage issues, into the number one producer both of clean renewable energy and water in the region.

If its not on Google, it doesn't exist

Here's a list of countries that have adopted feed in tariffs. Morocco is absent from this list, and shouldn't be if we are to truly dispose of decentralized solar energy capacity. Like I said in a previous post, it also hampers entry to the market by willing and able investors. Algeria offers quite good returns on renewable energy, one might say it is able to do so because of the enormous amounts the SONATRACH  is making, but still its a very laudable initiative from the Algerians.

Morocco has to follow suit, if not then the Algerians will distance us over time, and we will have overlooked the tremendous potential of seeing local energy concerns, others then ONE and VEOLIA emerge locally. Success locally is key if we are to see private energy concerns playing a meaningful role internationally in the future with Morocco as their base of operations.

India pops up as a surprise in the feed in list, and at the same time an avenue for thought. They too have no fossil fuels they could use to subsidize feed in tariffs, so how do they do it ? We have to study how it is done in India, a developing nation such as ours with similar social concerns and budget strains, if they are able to do it, then so should we. To be followed.
