|Renewable Energy Description:|
In 2002, as part of overall sustainable development goals, the Government of Israel set a target of at least 2% of all electricity to be supplied by renewable energy by 2007, increasing to 5% by 2016. Reaching this target was to require the construction of large solar and wind plants, as well as a mixture of small hydro, biomass and PV systems. It was also to involve RD&D, particularly in the field of solar energy. While the target was not met, Israel set out new targets to 2014 and 2020 in 2009 (see separate entry).
