Israel unveils a 10-year national energy efficiency plan

18 Nov 2020

The Israeli government has presented a national plan for energy efficiency, which intends to reduce the country’s energy intensity (energy consumption per unit of GDP) by 11% in 2025 (compared with 2015) and by 18% in 2030 (corresponding to a 1.3%/year decrease on average). The programme is expected to reduce energy consumption by around 16.5 TWh, leading to a cut in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 7.5% (-6 MtCO2eq). This measure will add to the decision of reaching 30% of renewables by 2030 and should help reduce emissions by 17% by 2030 (compared with 2015).

Israel intends to mobilise ILS1.5bn (US$450m) in budget resources to promote the transition to renewable energy production and the use of electrical technologies instead of technologies that consume fossil fuels. In addition, the program also comprises measures to reduce municipal electricity consumption, a reform in the import of electrical products, support grants for energy efficiency, house energy ratings, energy efficiency in government ministries, and more.
