Israel launches 10 year national energy efficiency plan

Israel government has launched a national plan for energy efficiency and dealing with the climate crisis.

According to the country’s Ministry of Energy, the new plan, which refers to the years 2020-2030, was formed to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions to deal with the climate crisis and the accelerated urbanization process. It includes promoting the transition to renewable energy production and the use of electrical technologies instead of technologies that consume fossil fuels. The Ministry estimates that the plan’s measures will result in a reduction of 7.5 per cent (6 million tonnes) of greenhouse gas emissions per year. The plan will also help achieve the national target, according to which electricity generation from renewable energy will reach 30 per cent by 2030.
