ANRE has set the access and usage tariffs for the national electricity transmission network for the period 2024-2026, resulting in an average reduction of 38% compared to the year 2023

Rabat 5th February 2024 – ANRE’s Board has unanimously decided to set access and usage tariffs for the national electricity transmission network for the regulatory period from 1st March 2024 to 28th February 2027. This decision is based on the approved tariff methodology of the 21st December 2022, as well as the analytical accounting data provided by the National Office of Electricity and Drinking Water (ONEE).

After an extensive two year marked by consultations with all sector stakeholders, ANRE has reached a decision to set the tariffs for the use of the national electricity transmission network (TURT) and system services (TSS). This decision also defines the authorized revenue for the National Transmission System Operator (TSO) under ONEE for the same period.

The tariffs utilize both the analytical accounting data from ONEE’s electricity transmission activity and data derived from a normative cost model developed by ANRE. This approach has enabled ANRE, in the absence of separate accounting for different ONEE activities, to ensure sufficient cost control leading to tariff reductions while supporting investments in developing the national electricity transmission network, ensuring security of supply, and enhancing the quality of the network operator’s services.
This downward tariff trend ensures that the portion representing transmission network costs remains limited, which should, in principle, result in reduced bills for customers in the liberalized market, thereby improving the competitiveness of the national economy and the attractiveness of our country for investors. Consequently, the Tariff for the Use of the Transmission Network (TURT) has been set at 6.39 cents per kilowatt-hour for the year 2024, while the Tariff for System Services (TSS) has been established at 6.35 cents per kilowatt-hour for the same year. These tariffs will be annually adjusted during the entire regulatory period based on the inflation rate to reflect economic conditions.

The observed decrease can be attributed, among other factors, to i) technical developments in the electricity sector, particularly with the development of significant electricity transmission infrastructure and the imminent commissioning of the Abdelmoumen transfer station; ii) the decrease in supply costs due to market developments in European electricity and natural gas; iii) the performance of electrical interconnections, reducing the need for flexibility means owned by ONEE.
ANRE’s decision constitutes a crucial element in sector regulation, ensuring equitable, transparent, and non-discriminatory access to the national electricity transmission network while overseeing efficient regulation, particularly from an economic standpoint.

The new tariff structure is the first clear, independent, and transparent tariff framework designed within the framework of Law 48-15 provisions. It brings significant changes to address sector challenges and align with the goals of the national energy strategy, in line with the directives of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him.
The decision regarding these tariffs applies during the initial regulatory period from 1st March 2024 to 28th February 2027. To this end, it has been posted for information on the ANRE website on 5th February 2024, and will subsequently be published in the Official Bulletin of the Kingdom of Morocco.
Furthermore, ANRE is currently working on determining the tariff for the surplus energy that can be transferred by producers under Law 13.09 on renewable energy and Law 82.21 on self-production of electrical energy to system operators. A decision in this regard will be made before the end of June 2024. Additionally, ANRE has initiated the process of establishing the access and usage tariff for the medium-voltage electric network, in accordance with the provisions of Law 48.15 regarding the regulation of the electrical sector and the creation of ANRE.
