The Ministry of National Planning, Urban Development, Housing, and Urban Policy in Morocco intends to improve the energy performance of its buildings. To do this, the ministry has signed a partnership with the Energy Engineering Company (SIE) in Rabat. It should be said that this framework agreement is in line with the site of exemplarity of the administration, an important axis of the National Strategy for Sustainable Development. Therefore, this partnership aims to take advantage of the experience of the SIE, also called Super ESCO, recognized for its expertise in several sectors related to energy efficiency, in order to implement measures to improve the energy performance of the various buildings of the Ministry.

In detail, the ministry explained that the measures provided for by the framework agreement “are likely to reduce the level of consumption of fossil energy, to develop energy efficiency and to strengthen the use of renewable energy in the buildings of this department.” Therefore, the framework agreement covers technological solutions relating to energy efficiency to rationalize energy consumption, self-production of renewable energy, treatment, and recovery of energy.

“Our ministry is taking several steps to implement the charter of exemplary administration,” said Soraya Khalil, director of quality and technical affairs at the ministry.

“This framework agreement will allow us to focus on the energy performance of the ministry’s buildings, to make it an example to follow in terms of sustainability, energy savings, and treatment and recovery of waste,” said the same source.

Ahmed Bouzid, the director of development at SIE, said that this partnership is part of the development of energy efficiency of all institutions and buildings under the Ministry at a national level. He noted that “the Energy Engineering Company provides the mission of delegated project manager and is responsible for the energy upgrade of buildings.”

Under this framework agreement, the SIE will conduct energy studies and implement projects related to the upgrading of lighting and the use of photovoltaic panels, in addition to training workshops for staff to optimize and rationalize the use of energy within these buildings. The signing ceremony of the framework agreement was also an opportunity for stakeholders to highlight the importance of this partnership that is likely to improve the daily lives of the staff of the Ministry. And this, by rationalizing energy consumption and waste emission and by controlling energy efficiency, while recalling the importance given to the environmental dimension by the New Development Model.
