  • Israel aims to achieve 18% of energy savings by 2030 (around 16.5 TWh) and to produce 30% of its electricity from renewables by 2030.
  • IEC dominates power generation (59%) and is the sole company for transmission and distribution. Noble Energy dominates natural gas exploration and production.
  • Production of natural gas surged in 2020 (+37%), reaching nearly 13 bcm.
  • Gas is quickly replacing coal for power generation (67% of the mix in 2020).
  • Oil prices follow international price trends, but are much higher than in neighbouring countries.
  • In 2020, total energy consumption declined by 3.4%. The share of gas in the energy mix is rising steadily, at the expense of oil and coal.
  • The government plans to develop 4 GW of new gas-fired capacity and to be "coal free" by 2030.


of energy consumption in 2020


of renewables in power generation by 2030


of gas production compared to 2019.


  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy supervises the energy sector. It does so through the Natural Gas and Oil Department that regulates the exploitation of oil and gas resources, through the Gas Authority and the Fuel Administration that regulate the transportation and distribution of gas and oil to the markets, and through the "Electricity Authority" for electricity.

  • Energy Companies


    IEC, Israel Electric Corporation is the national electricity utility company (99.85% state-owned).

  • Energy Supply


    Production started in 2004 and increased very rapidly from 2013, reaching almost 13 bcm in 2020 (+37% from 2019). Israel has 3 operational offshore gas fields, the main one is the 280 bcm giant gas field in Tamar, which started production in 2013.

  • Energy Prices


    The prices of gasoline and diesel are close (US$1.66/l and US$1.72/l, respectively, in 2020). Prices follow global trends in oil prices: they decreased significantly between 2013 and 2016 (-11%/year), increased until 2018 (+11%/year), and then declined again until 2020 (-5%/year for gasoline and -4%/year for diesel).

  • Energy Consumption

    Israel's consumption per capita is 2.4 toe (including around 6 600 kWh of electricity) (2020).

    Since 2015, consumption has been quite stable at around 22 Mtoe.

    In 2019, it reached a peak of 23.2 Mtoe, but dipped by 11% in 2020 to around 21 Mtoe.

    The total energy consumption per unit of GDP is decreasing very rapidly (around -3.6%/year since 2010).

  • Issues & Prospects


    According to the Electricity Authority, electricity generation is expected to reach 97 TWh in 2030 (+2.8%/year over 2017-2030). To meet rising demand, the installed capacity should reach 23.4 GW in 2030 (+3.4 GW compared to 2020), mainly from solar (+400 MW/year on average between 2020 and 2030) and gas.
