Said Mouline, The Man Behind CDER (Renewable Energy Development Centre)
An interesting interview conducted by the German Marshall Fund organisation back in June with Said Mouline, previously head of Morocco's CDER and now director of ADEREE, the Moroccan Agency for the Development of Renewable Energy, a newly created agency that is to replace CDER. . It would be interesting to hear from him, the pace of events has been important. But just how much pull did the man and CDER have in Morocco's energy strategy in a context dominated by heavyweights such as the ministry of mining and energy as well as ONE, the national electricity office.
What can be sure is that he will have more means to act, both financially, as here in Morocco, agency's budgets are much more consequent then center's, and also the scope of competency of agencies is comparatively much greater then centers. So what does he have in mind for ADEREE and what is his appreciation of CDER's past results ? Also what will be the role of ADEREE ? Studies as used to be the case with CDER, but also policy, investment framework, regulation ?
The only way of knowing is by proposing yet another interview.
