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.

Renewable energy has become the alternative energy source to replace fossil fuels. Properly implemented renewable energy technologies not only are able to reduce the negative impacts of climate change, but also contribute to social and economic development, energy accessibility, and more secure...
