With financial support from the European Union, Morocco has created three Training Institutes for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (IFMEREE by its French acronym) in Oujda, Tangiers and Ouarzazate.

Intended to support the Kingdom’s national energy strategy, these institutes offer courses in the field of training in eco-friendly jobs to meet the needs of a rapidly growing renewable energy market.

Morocco, which is aiming to become one of the world leaders in the transition to clean energy, is encouraging investment in solar and wind energy. With the support of the European Union, the country’s energy strategy aims to increase the share of renewable energies in electricity production to 52% by 2030, which would allow the creation of more than 50.000 new jobs in this sector.

Initiated in 2015, Oujda governorate IFMEREE has already started welcoming several enrollers, with respect to gender parity.

In Ouarzazate, the first class will start training at the start of the 2020-2021 academic year, while in Tangiers, the first batch of trainees has been enrolled and started learning since September 2019.

IFMEREE will aim to train one thousand people per year.

Continuous training sessions will be also offered to employees of companies in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sectors in the three cities of concern.

Thanks to its modern workshops and state-of-the-art infrastructure, IFMEREEs are closely following the constant evolution of the renewable energy market.
