Morocco is getting ready for the future. With an extensive sustainable development plan that will make the country more energy self reliant.
Ingenuity for life
For almost 170 years we have been finding ways to improve life in many areas. With our passion for technology, we set standards and create sustainable value – for our customers, for society and for each individual.
Today, what matters to Morocco is sustainable development. With sustainable development, Morocco can meet the needs of its people, their cities and communities, the businesses they operate and care for their environment; while creating a lasting legacy for the generations to come.
This starts with the fight against climate change. In this way Morocco can better shape its future: by working to reduce greenhouse gas and CO2 emissions, by speeding up the transition to a 'sustainable economy' and by creating a more energy efficient infrastructure. This will improve the quality of life for Moroccans everywhere and help Morocco to be a responsible global neighbor.
Together with Morocco, Siemens is already helping to make sustainable development a reality. Complex challenges require more thoughtful and more inventive problem solving. They require Ingenuity. Ingenuity depends on know-how, experience, teamwork and openness.
Ingenuity for life is our knack for complex problem solving with engineering and digital technology. Original thinking to confront the challenge. Inventive practices to design the solution and the discipline to deliver. To deliver new outcomes that make a real difference for people and for life. To deliver indispensable solutions that set new expectations of what is possible.
Ingenuity for life is making Morocco more energy self reliant with renewable energy generation which reduces the need for imported energy. For example, through wind turbines that capture more wind energy and steam turbines that convert sunshine into electricity for millions of households.
Ingenuity for life is making Morocco's energy infrastructure more reliable and more efficient to benefit communities and businesses. For example, with Morocco's first combined cycle power plant and with grid control centers for cities and towns.
Ingenuity for life is speeding up Morocco's sustainable economy with manufacturing plants, new job creation and skills development. For example, a new wind turbine blade factory that relies on a local workforce and will be a driver of exports.
Siemens is helping Morocco make the most of its own resources to produce, support and scale opportunities from wind and solar farms to manufacturing to the sustainable development of vital infrastructure. That's Ingenuity for life.
The Business to Society Report displays Siemens Morocco's success and the contribution it has made to the quality of life in Morocco. As we emphasize in our motto “Ingenuity for Life”, this report provides data and examples of the value we add “for life”.
Future of manufacturing
Digitalization is dramatically transforming manufacturing. Both process and discrete industries are benefitting from seamless integration of data from product development, production and supply chain. This helps manufacturers to respond flexibly to the specific needs of their customers.
Competition for industrial enterprises is more intense than ever. Digitalization is putting manufacturing processes on a new track: Plants, products and machines will become more and more networked in an integrated value chain. The main challenges for discrete and process industry are the same: shorten time-to-market, increase flexibility and efficiency.
More and more customers today desire customized products that are affordable, and yet still manufactured to a professional standard and delivered in a timely manner. In order to fulfill these expectations, industrial manufacturers and SMEs must produce goods with a high degree of flexibility and manage the whole process from ordering, product development, production and delivery.
Siemens’ innovations enable manufacturers to upgrade to the latest digital product development and production methods. As a result, companies can significantly improve flexibility and speed, and thus increase customer satisfaction.
Industry is responsible for ¼ of the energy used worldwide.
The lifecycle of products has dropped by 25% in the last 15 years.
Over the past 15 years, the range of different products has more than doubled.
Sensors, software and control systems are the hallmarks of intelligent infrastructure: making traffic flow smoother, reducing energy consumption, protecting the environment and ensuring cities are attractive places to live and do business in.
A functioning infrastructure is the backbone of cities and entire economies. It provides mobility, energy, water, security and a high quality of life. Local and national governments must ensure that infrastructures support both current and future demands. Intelligent infrastructures ensure efficient and reliable delivery of essential services.
Intelligent building management increases security and comfort through IT and automation. In addition it optimizes energy production and consumption in buildings.
Smart, integrated mobility systems ensure high capacity utilization and availability – at lower costs. What's more, people benefit from greater convenience, safety and punctuality.
For economies and cities with limited funds, intelligent technologies are a fast and efficient manner to optimize existing infrastructures. Siemens can help unlock the potential by providing innovative financing solutions.
Energy! The elixir of our modern world. At home as well as at work. Residential and office buildings, industrial complexes and transport systems – all depend on a safe, clean and efficient energy supply.
Today’s energy markets are changing rapidly as a result of efforts to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and the growth of renewable energy sources. Alternative business models and innovative technologies are therefore essential to successfully transition to a new energy landscape.
It all begins with efficient energy production. Wind turbines on land and at sea, as well as turbines that convert energy from gas or coal into electricity – all must function at the highest possible degree of efficiency.
Delivering power requires low-loss and secure transmission and distribution systems. Intelligent networks will reliably integrate decentralized and fluctuating renewable energy supplies into the grid. Decentralized power plants and storage solutions will be connected together, creating virtual power plants that help stabilize the power grid. Finally, state-of-the-art control technology will boost the flexibility of power stations.
The lowest-priced energy is energy that is not needed. Therefore, energy-efficient technologies are key to reducing energy consumption in areas like buildings, production and transportation.
By 2020, Morocco plans to cover 42% of its energy needs with renewable sources.
Tarfaya is the site of Africa’s largest wind farm to date with a capacity of 300 MW.
Siemens solutions capture the power of Tarfaya's wind and turn it into clean energy millions rely on.
Ouarzazate's sun plays an important role in reaching Morocco's goal of 42% renewable energy by 2020.
The Noor complex at Ouarzazate will be the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant.
Siemens solutions help converting the sun’s energy efficiently into electricity.
