Substitution of toxic non-renewable energy resources with solar and wind power is nothing new in the world. In American and Europe, measures have been taken to fight pollution through using renewable energy in various sectors. In Africa, Morocco, is among leading countries.
Al Boraq, Morocco's super-speed train, launches its work applying clean energy just a few days after the new year, according to the National Railways Office (ONCF).
ONCF transforms the country’s railway system through green power, supplied by a domestic operator. Advanced green enhancement helps the railway structure to replace 25% of their total electricity consumption with green energy, according to the statement by ONCF. The figure will hit 50% in the next year.
The measure will, in the near future, remove the entire toxic carbon emission; equal to decreasing 120,000 tons of CO2 a year or planting 4 million trees.
The clean policy, directed by HM King Mohammed VI, helps grow the amount of renewable energy in the country over 52% by the year 2030. In this wise, Morocco will soon be among top countries in Africa to expand its renewable energy.
