Morocco ranks high in climate action

Morocco has been named the second best performing country after Sweden in the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI).

The North African country significantly increased the share of renewables over the past five years and increased new renewable energy capacity.

Sweden is in top position, followed by Morocco and Lithuania in the CCPI 2019. The bottom five in the list are Saudi Arabia, U.S., Iran, South Korea and Taiwan. With the connection of the world’s largest solar plant to the grid, Morocco is on track for achieving its target of 42% installed renewable energy capacities by 2020.
