MEFRA implements its sustainable development strategy through pilot actions

As part of its strategic action plan and since October 27, 2019, DAAG has set up a photovoltaic power system with the installation of 890 photovoltaic modules on the roofs of three of the buildings of the Central Administration in Rabat, which produce a total power of 300 kilowatts-peak of clean electricity.

This innovative and pioneering project aims to produce 450 megawatt hours per year, which is equivalent to 75% of daily electricity needs, and to reduce the emission of 323 tonnes of CO2 per year, with a financial recovery of the investment after 4 and a half years compared to the life cycle of the system which is 25 years.

This one-of-a-kind pilot project is part of a major project that aims to equip the ministry’s energy-intensive buildings with photovoltaic power systems.

This project is part of a global action plan for sustainable development.

The reduction of the environmental impact through the use of 16 hybrid vehicles, the installation of energy-saving valves and new push valves and the implementation of a selective waste sorting system to recycle these materials.

Through these actions, the Ministry is strengthening its process of modernizing the Administration and is including energy efficiency and sustainable development as parts of its management activities.
