Energy management is a major issue in economic development that goes hand in hand with sustainable development. The objective of this study is to analyze the determinants of energy demand in Morocco during the period 1990-2016. For years to come, energy demand has tended to grow. As a result, it is important to understand the key determinants of energy demand through the analysis of three independent variables: gross domestic product (GDP), access to electricity and direct foreign investment. The approach adopted is to use an Error Correction Vector Model (VECM). Empirical results show that energy demand in Morocco is linked to real causes, which are GDP, access to electricity and foreign direct investment.
