The government company System Management (Nihul Hama’arechet), which is responsible for planning the Israeli power industry, announced today a call for proposals entitled “Planning the future energy economy of the state of Israel.”
The main task of the company, which was founded less than six months ago as part of the reform of the electricity industry, is to develop a comprehensive plan that presents the various outlines of long-term electricity. The company, headed by Yoram Cohen, has therefore decided to begin the process of getting public comment before formulating a plan.
The public is asked to express views on renewable energy, decentralized energy production, privatization, decommissioning and environmental aspects. Comments can be sent until May 9 to [email protected].
“We are at the beginning of a period of intense change,” Cohen said. “The transition to 30% renewable energy production, ending coal use and expanding gas use, the trend of decentralization of electricity production, the emergence of electric vehicles and energy storage challenges, oblige us to reorganize for the challenges of the future. This is not an internal, professional discussion. , but about involving the public in creating solutions for a competitive and emerging market and accompanying challenges.
System management will operate in several key areas: management of planning and future development of the energy economy; managing the statistical unit responsible for collecting and analyzing industry data and making forecasts; power system management; power trade management; and emergency power system management. The chairman of the company is General (res.) Shlomo “Sami” Turgeman.
