Morroco 42%

This is a picture of Morocco's Ouarzazate solar plant. The plant is part of Morocco's 42% renewable energy target - significantly more than a lot of developed nations.

The African Development Bank described Morocco as a "leader in developing low carbon sustainable energy on a large scale" and their spokesperson had this to say:
"Green growth is about finding the pathway where you achieve your ambitions in terms of social and economic development, but doing it in a way that is environmentally friendly; not only to be a global agent, but also to leave for future generations economies that are more robust and more able to produce jobs and resist climatic risks and disasters.”
If only the so-called developed nations grasped this concept as well as Morocco has.
