Israel to add 15GW of solar capacity by 2030

first_imgIsrael to add 15GW of solar capacity by 2030 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:Israel’s cabinet has approved a plan submitted by energy minister Yuval Steinitz to deploy around 15 GW more solar capacity to help raise the 2030 target for the proportion of national electricity drawn from renewables from 17% to 30%.An intermediate target of 20% has been set for 2025, and by the end of 2024 the overall target may be updated.“This decision will radically change the energy mix of the Israeli economy and position the country as one of the leading Western countries in solar energy production, at the expense of power plants operating on natural gas and diesel,” the Ministry of Energy stated.The plan will be financed through a slight increase in power tariffs, which the government estimates between 2 and 3%. “The plan will in the future lead to a reduction in energy costs, while promoting a reliable, efficient and sustainable energy economy,” it further explained.Israel had around 1.19 GW of solar capacity at the end of last year, according to International Renewable Energy Agency figures. Developers deployed around 120 MW of solar in Israel last year.[Emiliano Bellini]More: Israeli government greenlights plan to add 15 GW of solar by 2030last_img read more

And I’m looking forward to seeing him grow with this team. “He will have to be one of the leaders, one of the main figures because he is just coming to his peak time as a footballer at 27. “I am really looking forward to working with him.” Pogba joined United in an £89m transfer from Juventus in 2016. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has laid the groundwork for Paul Pogba to sign a new contract at Manchester United. Pogba is out of contract next summer, but the club holds a 12-month option to extend that and they will do that as the worst-case scenario. The France midfielder has seen a dramatic turnaround in his fortunes since the Premier League restart. Pogba has been integral to United alongside Bruno Fernandes and he has repaid the faith Solskjaer had in him. “I’ve been speaking more or less every day with Paul,” admitted Solskajer last month. The Sun have reported that Pogba is close to finalising a huge new five-year deal at United. The Frenchman was heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford for some time. Indeed, his agent, Mino Raiola, continually talked up the prospect earlier this season. The speculation came amid injuries hampering Pogba’s progress; the 27-year-old had only made eight appearances this season before lockdown due to two-foot injuries.Advertisementcenter_img Loading… last_img read more
