Highlights

  • Israel aims to achieve 40% of renewables in the country's power mix by 2030 and to eliminate coal from power generation by 2025.
  • IEC dominates power generation (54%) and is the sole company for transmission and distribution.
  • Energean discovered the Katlan gas field in 2023, estimated to hold 68 bcm of natural gas.
  • Gas production has more than doubled over 2019-2022, reaching 22 bcm.
  • Thermal accounts for 77% of the country's power capacity, with gas dominating by far.
  • Gasoline and diesel prices peaked in 2022 and both fell by 9% in 2023.
  • Total energy consumption increased by 4.5% and final consumption by 3.6% in 2022.
  • Israel is ramping up efforts in the solar sector, with 1.2 GW of projects under development.
  • Israel awarded 12 licenses to six companies in October 2023 as part of the 4th Offshore Bid Round for Natural Gas Exploration in Israel's Exclusive Economic Zone.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure 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 and Gas Administration that regulate the transportation and distribution of gas and oil to the markets, and through the "Electricity Authority" for electricity.

  • Energy Companies

    Electricity:

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

  • Energy Supply

    Oil:

    Oil production is limited (307 kt). Crude oil imports increased by 9% between 2020 (12.3 Mt) and 2022 (13.4 Mt).

    The country has 2 refineries: Haifa (196 kb/d) and Ashdod (100 kb/d). Oil Refineries commissioned a new hydrocracking unit of 25 kb/d at its Haifa refinery in 2013 to produce cooking gas, naphtha, kerosene, and high-quality diesel.

  • Energy Prices

    Oil:

    The prices of gasoline and diesel are close (US$1.94/l and US$2.13/l, respectively, in 2023) and follow global crude oil price trends. Gasoline and diesel prices peaked in 2021 and both fell by 9% in 2022.

  • Energy Consumption

    Israel's consumption per capita is 2.5 toe (i.e., 20% less than the Middle East average), including around 6 680 kWh of electricity (65% above the regional average) (2022).

    Primary energy consumption has been rising since 2019, including +3.5% in 2020 and +4.2% in 2022, when it reached 24 Mtoe. Between 2015 and 2019, consumption was quite stable at around 22 Mtoe.

  • Issues & Prospects

    Electricity:

    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.
