Israel is one of the leading countries in the world in developing technologies for the exploitation of solar energy.

Israel has the adequate climate conditions for vast development of renewable energy. The advantage in using wind energy in Israel is the availability of wind in times when the demand for electricity is high. According to official publications the estimated potential in Israel is 600 megawatts. Israel is home to dozens of government-sponsored technology incubators that support some 1,500 start-up companies developing clean technologies. Among them over 100 companies are developing renewable energy solutions.

the Israeli company Solel was the first to develop and install a large-scale solarpowered and fully functional electricity generating plant in Southern California's Mojave desert. The above mentioned technology is now serving nine Mojave Desert power plants in that produce 350 megawatts. Genova Ltd., an Israeli company part of the Misgav Technology Center, has been included in Red Herring's list of 100 most promising companies in 2006 in the alternative energy category. Israeli companies are active in both R.O. and Evaporation methods, for large and small desalination plants. Israeli desalination systems exist in Cyprus, the Caribbean Islands, South America, U.N. Forces in Yugoslavia, India and many other countries. The largest plant is being built in Israel, and is operative since 2005. Israeli companies are leaders in the water metering Remote Control metering by electronic devices are the fore-front of the technology. Israeli companies developed devices for air quality monitoring, heavy metals in water, hydrocarbons, specific ion analyzers and other technologies and devices Biological Treatment Technology, generating clean energy from the degradable organic matter and sorting the recyclable materials out of the waste, is the Israeli new development Scientists from Israel, Belgium, and the US, are working together in order to produce rain in sub-tropical areas.

"Ormat", an Israeli company specializing in finding alternative energy solutions, is one of the world's leaders in geothermic energy. It is the only company dealing with geothermic energy that can supply all of its needs starting from producing and developing the products, to their installation, maintenance and production of the electricity itself. Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees.

energy per capita. Installation of solar hot water heating has become the norm in countries with an abundance of solar radiation, like Israel and Greece, and in Japan and Austria, where there is less.
