Israel to Stop Using Fossil Fuels by 2050

In a major effort to save the environment, the Israeli Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure has announced that the country will make a complete energy transition from traditional fossil fuels to biological, synthetic, and hydrogen fuels by 2050.

A statement regarding it was issued by the Israeli Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure on Sunday.

Under the plan, Israel will ensure renewable green fuel supply to every economic sector.

The plan aims to shut down the massive oil refineries in Haifa Bay and switch to imports instead of local production of petroleum distillates. Israel will establish six or seven hydrogen fueling stations by 2030.

The country also plans to promote transport electrification and the use of hydrogen power, synthetic fuels, and biofuels to reduce CO2 emissions from the transportation sector by 96 per cent by 2050.
