Morocco to build 2,500 charging stations by 2026

In Morocco, companies in the electricity and automotive sectors have given the green light to APIME, the intersectoral association for electric mobility founded a few weeks ago, to install 2,500 new charging stations in the country over the next three years.

These are to be installed in Morocco’s main cities such as Casablanca, Tangier and the capital Rabat by 2026 to support the import of electric cars. According to media reports, the charging offensive is supported by the Moroccan Federation of Electricity, Electronics and Renewable Energies (FENELEC) and also forms one of the cornerstones of the national plan for electric mobility.

This strategic plan was developed by the Moroccan Office for Water and Electricity (ONEE) and aims to reduce air pollution in the North African country. The transport sector is said to be responsible for 40% of CO2 emissions in Morocco, according to OECD figures.

For its part, the professional association for electric mobility APIME was only founded at the end of January 2023. It is intended to create the framework conditions for the development of electromobility in the country. The founders are “a number of industrial and commercial companies”, according to the statement. The first focus of APIME’s work is to be on dialogue with authorities and network companies. Another important goal of the young association is to serve as a roadmap for the private sector in order to “prepare it for the expected emergence of electric vehicles”. (both in French)
