Is located in the north Africa's oil and gas reserves is not abundant in Morocco, the Middle East and north Africa region's largest energy importer, importing 94% energy, Morocco, energy independence and green can actively planning, plans to increase the rate of renewable energy than in 2020 to 42%, which is one of the most important program in anwar Mr Zardari's nur (Noor) solar energy plan, a total of 4 period, all will become the world's largest solar energy plan, after completion of the online but was first opened in December 27, 2015, has delayed without any warning.
Nur solar plan USES the groove parabolic mirror concentrated technology, the first phase of the nominal power generation capacity of 160 million megawatts, expect every year for 240000 tons of carbon reduction in Morocco, the second and the third phase of scheduled to start in 2016 and 2017 respectively, the contractor by Saudi Arabia ACWAPower beat the Spanish giants, conscripted benzene (Abengoa) bid, will include 200 million watts groove parabolic mirror plans, and 100 million watts of tower, the fourth stage is the tender.After the completion of the four periods for the entire quantity, nur plan will always covers an area of 30 square kilometers, the total generating capacity of 580 million megawatts, to supply 1 million households, as the world's biggest solar power plan.
But now Morocco has no warning delays enabled nur installment plan, and didn't say why, attracted a lot of speculation.
Nur plan is also concentrated solar power in California, Ivan palmer (Ivanpah) plan doesn't perform up to expectations other plans for the solar cell prices continued to fall in the competitive and lockout one by one, only a chance, but now plans to delay without any warning, concentrated solar power in the future, can be said with Spanish concentrated solar power companies are facing bankruptcy, the elder brother of the benzene is tottering.
