Besides its symbolic aspect in the Kingdom, this program contributes to reducing energy consumption in mosques and related buildings. The implementation model was validated on sets of more than 100 mosques each, for projects carried out by SMEs or independent self-employed entrepreneurs throughout Morocco.
The program is still implemented in coordination with the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs. The objective is to upgrade and maintain the whole set of mosques in operational condition nationwide. There are more than 50,000 mosques in Morocco.
At the technical level, the actions carried out covered the following:
- Replacement of lamps ;
- Installation of solar thermal water heaters and power self-generators for large mosques ;
- Technical training of mosque staff.
