Climate Change – Mitigation

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.
Water, Rivers And Sea

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: 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 preparations 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: Natural Gas and Oil

Studies: Natural Gas and Oil

Samuel Neaman Institute's studies in this field addresses all aspects of the use of fossil fuels and also includes 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: 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.
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.
Gas Emissions Reporting and Registration System in Israel: Summary of Reports for 2017

Gas Emissions Reporting and Registration System in Israel: Summary of Reports for 2017

July, 2019
65 companies and organizations submitted their reports to the Voluntary GHG Registry in 2017 to the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
Energy Forum 45: Barriers to and incentives for constructing private electricity generation facilities in Israel

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.
A Comparative Study of the Carbon Capture Alternatives in the Production of Natural Gas-based Transportation Fuels

A Comparative Study of the Carbon Capture Alternatives in the Production of Natural Gas-based Transportation Fuels

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) is captured from emissions of industrial and energy production processes, and is stored without returning to the atmosphere. The goal of the process is to reduce the impact of anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs) on climate change. CCS is composed of 3 main stages: Capture- separation of CO2 from other gases in the industrial\energy production process; Transportation- transporting CO2 from its capture site to its storage site; and Storage- Injecting CO2 into underground rock formations\ aquifers for long term confinement. Alternately, it can be used in industrial processes for goods productions (carbon capture and utilization- CCU). There is a whole array of CCS technologies. Some are already in successful use for decades, while others are under development or in transition to an industrial scale. Globally, there are about 35 active CCS projects and about 20 more in different development stages today. The existing projects are capturing together more than 30 million tons of CO2 annually (only 0.1% of anthropogenic GHGs emissions), and they operate in power plants and in industrial processes.

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.
Energy Forum 40: Natural gas for transportation in Israel

Energy Forum 40: Natural gas for transportation in Israel

July, 2017
The problem of air pollution, as a result of the emission of pollutants in exhaust gases from transportation, is getting worse, in the world and in Israel - especially in city centers.
