Total 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.

The total energy consumption per unit of GDP is decreasing very rapidly (around -3.7%/year since 2010), driven by the shift from coal to gas and solar in power generation.

Crude Oil Production

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.

Renewable in % Electricity Production

In 2022, the Ministry of Environment released a new renewable energy roadmap, targeting 20% of renewables in the country's power mix by 2025 and 40% by 2030. To reach the new objective, Israel would have to instal between 18 GW and 23 GW of solar projects along with 5.5 GW / 33 GWh of storage capacity. The total potential for solar PV installations is estimated at 26 GW, including 24 GW on building roofs and facades and 2 GW over agricultural crops.

CO2 Fuel Combustion/CO2 Emissions

In its updated NDC (2021), Israel increased its emissions reduction target to 27% compared to 2015 (previously 26%), including -30% in the power sector and in industry; this corresponds to a total level of emissions of 58 MtCO2eq in 2030. The country also committed to cut emissions by at least 85% by 2050 (compared to 2015) to up to 12 MtCO2eq. According to the Ministry of Environmental Protection (May 2023), Israel is off track to reach its 2030 emission target, with an estimated 12% GHG cut by 2030.
