Studies: Waste Management

Studies: Waste Management

Samuel Neaman Institute's studies examine the potential for reducing waste at source, reducing waste landfilling and developing processes that make the nuisance into a resource, both in the domestic sector and in the industry and agriculture sector. Practical policies and tools at the national and local government levels are suggested.
Studies: Natural Gas and Oil

Studies: Natural Gas and Oil

Samuel Neaman Institute's studies in this field address all aspects of the use of fossil fuels and also include a number of studies carried out for the Ministry of Environmental Protection and the Ministry of Energy to examine the environmental impacts of natural gas as a source of fuels for transportation.
Studies: Climate Change – Mitigation

Studies: Climate Change – Mitigation

Climate change attracts worldwide attention because of the environmental, economic and social implications. Samuel Neaman Institute's studies in this field include means to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation) and their purpose is to describe and analyze emissions and provide a scientific basis for formulating national policies in various fields, including energy production, transportation, industry, construction, agriculture, water and more.
Studies: Sustainable Development

Studies: Sustainable Development

Samuel Neaman Institute's publications in the field discuss the challenges and opportunities arising from a situation of lack of resources – land, energy, water, food and raw materials in industry. The studies present analyses of the existing situation, along with the potential for efficiency improvements and innovation and the leverage of Israeli Environmental R&D, agriculture and industry.
Studies: Climate Change – Adaptation (Israeli Climate Change Information Center – ICCIC)

Studies: Climate Change – Adaptation (Israeli Climate Change Information Center – ICCIC)

In accordance with a government decision, the Ministry of Environmental Protection was tasked with preparing a national plan for Israel's adaptation for climate change. To this end, the ministry has decided to establish an Israeli knowledge center on the subject, which will work to strengthen the existing scientific knowledge in everything related to preparing for climate change in Israel and will even work to market the accumulated Israeli knowledge in other target countries.
Studies: Water, Rivers and Sea

Studies: Water, Rivers and Sea

Samuel Neaman Institute's studies examine various aspects of the field of water in Israel, including the implications of the transition of the Israeli water sector from natural sources to reclaimed and desalinated water, water and agriculture, river restoration and the relationship between water, the public and the nature.
Studies: Transportation

Studies: Transportation

Samuel Neaman Institute's publications in the field examine, among others, the environmental impacts of the various means of transportation and the policy required to reduce them, the benefits and barriers to integrating oil substitutes in the transportation sector, including, electric transportation, waste-based and bio-ethanol fuel substitutes, and the economic benefits of transportation projects such as road tunneling and more.
Building a personal resilience through contact with nature in the times of Corona

Building a personal resilience through contact with nature in the times of Corona

The research is conducted in collaboration with the Shamir Research Institute. During the time of COVID-19 pandemic, the public in Israel has experienced various stressful events. Stressful life events often lead to psychological stress and impair health. Promoting personal resilience is therefore an essential part of adaptation in such times. The study focused on individuals' emotional state, the contribution of various determinants for explaining it, and the ways exposure to nature under the restrictions may provide some relief.
Energy Forum

Energy Forum

The purpose of the Energy Forum meetings is to provide a professional platform where professional can discuss specific energy related topics. At the same time, the Forum allows multilateral discussions encouraging projects in the fields of renewable and energy conservation. The forum meetings serve as a platform for defining professional, applicable positions, to be used by relevant decision makers.

Energy Forum 45: Barriers to and incentives for constructing private electricity generation facilities in Israel

March, 2019
The reform in the electricity sector has created a new reality that aims to gradually reduce the generation of electricity by the Israel Electric Company (IEC) and shift it to private electricity producers while keeping, at the same time, the transmission, distribution, and metering in the hands of the IEC. The management of the system and the PDT (Planning, Development, and Technology) branch of the IEC is planned to be entrusted in the hands of an independent government company.
Energy Forum 41: Hybrid and electric vehicles

Energy Forum 41: Hybrid and electric vehicles

February, 2018
The development of transportation means that are not based on fossil fuels is at the forefront of the public agenda in many countries around the world. This is an effective means of preventing air pollution, reducing pollution and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
