An Analysis of Israel

An Analysis of Israel's Renewable Energy IndustryAn Analysis of the Renewable Energy Industry of Israel

This project began as part of a joint venture with the Newtech unit at the Ministry of Economics, and since 2015 it has continued with the funding of the Samuel Neaman Institute, as part of the Industrial Excellence Center. The goal of the project is to leverage Israel's position as a leader in the field of renewable energy, including energy production and its integration into the energy system, efficiency improvements, and the development of fuel substitutes.
The Industry of Innovative Agricultural Technologies in the Shadow of the Global Food Crisis

The Industry of Innovative Agricultural Technologies in Light of the Global Food Crisis

As world's population grows, the demand for food is growing as well. The FAO expects that the global agricultural output will have to rise by 60% by 2050 to meet the needs of the growing population and the changes in dietary habits, together with the challenges arising from the climate change, the depletion of water and land resources, and reduced biodiversity.
Advanced Manufacturing – Formulating a National Policy

Advanced Manufacturing – Formulating a National Policy

This study is intended to formulate a national policy proposal for promoting and implementing advanced manufacturing in Israel and help in its implementation.
Insects in the Service of Man

Insects in the Service of Man

Insects are of fundamental importance to the ecosystem, and their existence is critical for human survival. Insects play a variety of roles in the service of man, while the research of the full potential inherent in them is still in various stages.
Israel Greenhouse Gases Reporting and Registration System

Israel Greenhouse Gases Reporting and Registration System

Climate change is receiving worldwide attention in light of its environmental, economic, and social implications for the developing and developed world. The Israeli government recognizes the importance of taking steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and acts accordingly.
The Industrial Excellence Center

The Industrial Excellence Center

The Industrial Excellence Center was established in 2011 and its objective is to promote a national industrial policy. The Center helps formulate and promote a proactive policy of industrial excellence, intended to sustain a balanced and high-quality national industry that maintains a healthy lifecycle, which is tested by its global competitive advantage and quality employment of all sectors of society. The Industrial Excellence Center is also part of the Israel 2028 Vision.
Master Plan for Energy

Master Plan for Energy

The Environment and Energy team of the Samuel Neaman Institute is a member of the consulting team of TAHAL, which in 2011 won the tender to establish a master plan for the energy sector.
Integration of waste-derived alternative fuels in Israel

Integration of waste-derived alternative fuels in Israel's transportation system

The world's transportation system is almost entirely based on oil-derived fuels, fed into internal combustion engines (ICE). Energy supply and demand markets – especially for transportation – are not economically unfettered and sustainable. According to the IEA, without targeted and active policies greenhouse gases and pollutants emissions from the energy sectors will more than double by 2050, all the while dealing with increasing fuels supply side difficulties and scarcity. The pathway to steer away from this future entails the dissemination of cleaner and more efficient transportation alternatives.
Techno-Economic Examination of Waste Pneumatic Systems

Techno-Economic Examination of Waste Pneumatic Systems

The Ministry of Environmental Protection wishes to examine the environmental and economic feasibility of establishing a pneumatic waste collection system in densely built residential neighborhoods. The study surveys various technologies and the companies that are active in this field, and examines the experience gained in Israel in setting up these systems. It also presents an economic analysis from the perspective of all the parties involved, including the local authority and the economy as a whole.
Development of Sustainable Mariculture in Israel

Development of Sustainable Mariculture in Israel

According to publications by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, most of the fishing areas in the world have been exploited to the fullest or suffer from excessive fishing, while the demand for seafood (fish, mollusks, crustaceans, and algae) is increasing, because of their many nutritional benefits.
Integration of electric and hybrid vehicles in Israel

Integration of electric and hybrid vehicles in Israel's transportation system

This research is conducted within the framework of the government decision of 2011 regarding the operation of a national program to reduce global dependence on oil, and further to another government decision of 2013 regarding the reduction of Israeli dependence on oil for transportation. The research was submitted to the Ministry of National Infrastructure, Water and Energy.

Feasibility of Commercial Production of Standard Fuel from Israeli Natural Gas (GTL)

Feasibility of Commercial Production of Standard Fuel from Israeli Natural Gas (GTL)

The production of natural gas-based fuels using GTL technology is one of the existing alternatives that are on the agenda of the government for testing and evaluation, as well as other technologies for the production of substitute natural gas-based fuels.
Electric Vehicles in Israel

Electric Vehicles in Israel

Electrification of the transportation sector serves the goals of reducing oil-dependency, lowering harmful air pollution in densely populated areas and decreasing greenhouse gases emissions, through the superiority of electric drivetrains in energy efficiency, compared to the conventional internal combustion engines. However, one of the main barriers for electric vehicle (EV) adoption remains the charging infrastructure availability.
