The director of USTDA stated that U.S. investors are motivated by the plan and the interest and commitment of the sovereign on the sidelines of the visit of a Moroccan delegation representing the solar energy sector to California.

The members of the delegation, part of a business mission managed by USTDA, represented primarily the Moroccan Agency for Solar Energy (MASEN), Energy Investment Corporation (SIE), National Society of Transport and Logistics (SNTL), National Agency for Development of Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency (ADEREE), and National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE).

The USTDA director emphasized the willingness of the U.S. agency to take part in Morocco’s hard work to reach the production of 20 gigawatt (GW) of solar energy by 2020.

He said the greeting tendered to the Moroccan delegation in California reflected a genuine desire on the part of the American business society to attest associations with Morocco in this matter.
