Morocco is the largest energy impo North Africa, with a high dependenon these imports (95.6% in 2011). Energy consumption has risen at an
average annual rate of 5.7% from 2002 to 2011. However, the per capita energy consumption at 0.52 tonnes oil equivalent (Toe) in 2011, is less than one third the world average (1.7 Toe). Morocco’s focus on energy-intensive sectors (chemicals, construction, etc) on building infrastructure, on tourism and industry will increase its long-term energy needs.
