Solar photovoltaic to improve the competitiveness of exporters

Under the theme “ Photovoltaic solar at the service of the decarbonization of export industries », the Moroccan Association of Exporters (ASMEX) organized in Casablanca a meeting-debate in partnership with the Banque Populaire, which aims to present to exporters solar photovoltaic as a concrete solution to improve their competitiveness through cost reduction. production and carbon emissions.

During this meeting-debate, the vice-president of ASMEX, Hakim Marrakchi, highlighted the importance of such an approach and shared his company’s experience in terms of green energy as a solution to the requirements of the international market.

Today, it is no longer enough to reduce energy consumption, but to find viable solutions over the long and medium terms because the price of energy is soaring (…). The Kingdom’s strategic orientation towards a green economy encourages all manufacturers to adopt the right reflexes and to move towards ecological, sustainable and optimal solutions. It is essential to position the national exportable offer on the international market in general and the European market in particular. “, he confided.

During this meeting, experts and specialists followed one another to share their experiences and give indications on the development of the carbon balance and the decarbonization plan, reveal some key elements for the success of the solar photovoltaic project or even the solutions of financing made available to industrialists in terms of the electricity mix, said a press release from ASMEX.

In this regard, moreover, Mohamed Amimi, Executive Director of the SME market of the Banque Populaire, spoke about the financial support formulas put in place and from which several hundred companies already benefit.

Banque Populaire supports all companies in reaching this milestone as part of its CSR strategy. A commitment that can be defined by the financing of major projects relating to renewable energies, the issuance of Green Bonds intended to refinance Moroccan renewable energy projects, the assessment of the environmental impact of each investment loan in upstream of the examination by the Credit Committee, to finally set up a complete system aimed at supporting companies in their energy efficiency approach through adapted financing offers “, did he declare.

To detail the important stages of the transition to green energy, Fatima Zahra El Khalifa, general manager of a solar company, Mohamed Adnane Berbache representative of a consulting company and other speakers presented feasible solutions at different costs. and adaptable to the budgets and size of different companies.

Emphasis was placed in particular on the return on investment estimated after 4 or 5 years, for a lifespan of the photovoltaic solar panels, which can go up to 25 years.

The feasibility of the project goes through six essential steps, argued the speakers. First a tailor-made study which consists of sizing on the basis of a field audit, the consumption profile, the areas and types of spaces available and their load capacities as well as geolocation. Quantified and argued study (power, details, profitability, etc.).

Regarding financing, the speakers recommended the choice of whether or not to carry the investment and search for financing, then the supplies and installations ( Supply of panels, inverters, structures to be evaluated on the basis of criteria of quality, performance, guarantees, eligibility for financing and subsidies. Assembly work of electrical cabinets, installation of structures, wiring, etc.).

Then, there is the commissioning which, to be successful, the technical team carries out tests and carries out final checks on site, followed by maintenance. Indeed, to sustain an installation, preventive and curative maintenance is essential, hence the importance of a partner committed over the long term with appropriate teams and technical means.

And finally, the supervision which is a necessity for a digital solution to remotely supervise the solar power plant and allows a real-time display, on site and remotely, of the performance of the power plant (electricity production and consumption, CO2 emissions avoided , alarms, etc.), concludes ASMEX.
