Palestine

The Palestinian energy sector is almost entirely reliant on energy imports. 89% of total electricity supply comes from the Israeli Electrical Corporation, whereas 3% come from Egypt and Jordan. The share of installed energy capacity in Palestine is entirely fossil fuel fired. Palestine aims to achieve 10% of domestic electricity generation come from renewable energy by 2020. A NEEAP was adopted in 2012 with energy efficiency targets of 5% cumulative energy savings by 2020.

Palestine is a RCREEE member state since 2008.

Cairo, Egypt – 21 st May, 2013 – The Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) has published brief studies on its member states’ renewable energy and energy efficiency market. RCREEE’s thirteen Arab member states were ranked on fixed dimensions that include investments, institutional capacity, electricity pricing, future targets, and policies. The country profiles also analyze current and planned renewable energy projects. The profiles provide a simple tool for policy makers, researchers, and investors to know more about Arab states’ readiness in the field. RCREEE will launch the profiles at the Arab Energy Efficiency Day to be held in 21 st May in Cairo.
Alarming facts.The energy consumption in the Arab Mediterranean Region is climbing dramatically mainly due the increase of Air Condition Units and other electric appliances. This is a conclusion in latest report on “Energy Efficiency Indicators” by Plan Bleu which was elaborated in close cooperation with the Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE) in Cairo with the support of MED-ENEC.
