Moroccan Mosques Program
For mosques with low power consumption, an initiative that contributes to the goals of the national energy strategy, specifically a reduction in energy consumption by 12% in 2020 and 15% in 2030.
This program was initiated between the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs (MHAI), the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment (MEMEE), the ADEREE, and SIE as an agreement on the launch of an energy upgrade program for mosques. To do this, the SIE will implement the program funding solution with technical support from the German Cooperation GIZ.
This ambitious program aims at rehabilitating 15,000 mosques under the management of the MHAI that will be deployed in two phases. The first phase targets 1000 small, medium and large mosques, beginning with the objective of an energy balance for the mosques, and an estimate of the cost of energy optimization relating thereto. The second phase consists of the generalization of this model throughout the national territory including15,000 mosques.
Parallel to the energy upgrade program for mosques, a training course will be set up to acquire the required skills, encourage the development of expertise and promote energy efficiency in buildings.
- Contribute to the requirements of the National Energy Plan 2020 by reducing power consumption by mosques, a highly symbolic action.
- Raise awareness of reducing energy consumption and new technologies (LED lighting, solar water heaters) for their widespread introduction into homes.
- Contribute to the emergence of a market for energy efficiency
- Promote CPE
- Create jobs in the sector
- Structure the market for ESCOs through a low technical and financial risk program to enable support for ESCOs in public buildings.
