The people of Tadmamet, a village south of Marrakesh, have built a mosque with solar panels on the roof and LED lamps inside. Morocco is hosting the climate conference and the country is heading into the future of energy.
Renewable energy is becoming increasingly viable worldwide. But how can governments spread the message to the public? In Morocco, the authorities have been looking to religion for the answer.
At Tadmamet, a mountain village south of Marrakesh, the new mosque is tapping into a growing trend in Morocco: solar power. With rooftop panels, the Tadmamet mosque generates all its own electricity.
Morocco, host of the 2016 climate conference, intends to cover more than half of its electricity needs from renewables by 2030. In addition to massive installations, hundreds of mosques will also generate solar energy.
