|NAMA in the Argan sector||Implementation||Agriculture||The objective is to develop the culture of argan plants through the association of the Argania spinosa (L) Skeels plants with fodder crops (cereals, legumes) over an area of 43,000 hectares. The NAMA entails:
a) New plantations of argan trees over 28,000 hectares before 2030, in association with 2,000 hectares of fodder plants per year with a density of 182 trees per hectare; b) Fodder plants over 28,000 hectares of new plantations and over the 15,000 hectares expected as part of the Green Plan.The objective is to increase carbon storage in biomass and soils and decrease the industrial and anthropic pressure on wild argan forests."
|Waste management NAMA||Under development||Waste||The NAMA aims to introduce new alternatives the ongoing practices of waste treatment, currently based primarily on landfills.|
|Habitat NAMA||Under development||Buildings
|Energy efficiency||The objective is to increase energy efficiency and deployment of renewable energy technologies in Morocco's residential sector. It has set specific targets for 2030: the installation of 983,000 solar thermal collectors, thermal insulation of 136,400 residences, the installation of 4,450 thermal inertial refrigerators coupled with PV panels, and the deployment of 130 million fluorescent lamps. The NAMA is comprised of a financial component and a technical support component.|
|Solar pumping NAMA||Under development||Energy
|Renewable energy (solar)||The Solar pumping NAMA is the most advanced energy NAMA. Its objective is to encourage the implementation of and expand the scope of Morocco's national solar pumping program. The latter aims to replace butane/diesel irrigation pumps used by small-scale farmers with solar pumps, thus creating savings for the government, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and reducing GHG emissions. The NAMA has a target of 30,000 pumps installed between 2015 and 2025. The NAMA is comprised of two main components, a financial component and a technical support component, and specifically targets small farmers who are unable to qualify for low-interest loans from Crédit Agricole.|
|Decentralized PV NAMA||Under development||Energy||Renewable energy (solar)||The objective is to support and facilitate the implementation of a national program to install rooftop solar PV on residences connected to the low-voltage grid. The programme aims to create installed capacity of 200 MWp by 2020 and of 2,500 MWp by 2030, thereby helping to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions. The NAMA will support development of the solar PV market through the introduction of a net metering approach. The overall aim is to improve access to energy, support the liberalization of the introduction of renewable energy and diversify the energy mix.|
|Morocco solar plan||Under development||Energy||Renewable energy (solar)||Installation of 2000 MW of concentrating solar power (CPS) by 2020|
Feasibility studies for NAMAs
|Residential buildings energy efficiency in Morocco||Feasibility study||Buildings||Incorporate several measures to incentivize the uptake of solar hot water systems, accelerate the adoption of compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL), implement measures related to the thermal performance of buildings and incorporate energy efficiency labeling of appliances.|
|Demand-side energy efficiency programme in industry||Feasibility study||Industry||Energy efficiency||To promote energy efficiency activities in the manufacturing sector based on specific incentives and demonstration projects.|
