Morocco: Inauguration of the Green & Smart Building Park dedicated to R&D

The Green Energy Park organised on Friday 24 February 2023, the inauguration ceremony of the “Green & Smart Building Park” platform, in Benguerir, Morocco.

This structure, financed by the University Mohammed VI Polytechnic (UM6P), the Institute of Research in Solar Energy and New Energies (IRESEN) and the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), is a test, training and innovation platform dedicated to research and development (R&D) in the fields of green buildings, energy efficiency, electric mobility and smart networks.

This platform aims to contribute to the development of the Moroccan and African sustainable city of the future through the valorisation of low environmental impact building materials, the integration of renewable energies in buildings and digitalisation.

Its objective is to encourage applied research, innovation and incubation by relying on the Kingdom’s human capital through the pooling of research infrastructures and the federating of efforts of the various institutions and local players in the construction and electrical networks sectors (research centres, universities, development agencies, large companies and SMEs, etc.).

During the ceremony, the platform’s research themes and infrastructures were presented to the main national and foreign academic, industrial and institutional actors. This event also allowed the various stakeholders to create synergies and to join forces through the Green & Smart Building Park in order to contribute to the success of the energy transition of the Moroccan and African city of tomorrow.

The inauguration ceremony of the GSBP was finally the occasion to celebrate the achievement of this bilateral project between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Republic of Korea, on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The Green & Smart Building Park platform will contribute to moving from research to innovation and to developing products, services and processes for the Moroccan and African sustainable city of tomorrow.
