The main task of the company, created less than six months ago as part of the reform of the electricity sector, is to develop a comprehensive plan with different contours for the electricity sector in the long term. The company, led by Yoram Cohen, therefore decided to embark on a process of obtaining public comments before formulating the plan.

The public is invited to express themselves on renewable energies, decentralized energy production, privatization, the end of the use of coal and environmental aspects. Comments can be sent until May 9 to [email protected]

“We are at the start of a period of intense change,” Cohen said. “The shift to the production of 30% electricity from renewable sources, the end of the use of coal and the expansion of the use of gas, a trend towards decentralization of electricity production, l The advent of electric vehicles and the challenges of energy storage, force us to reorganize ourselves to This is not an internal and professional discussion, but to involve the public in the production of solutions for a competitive market and developing and the challenges that arise from it. “

The management of the system will work in several key areas: managing the planning and future development of energy saving; manage a statistics unit responsible for collecting and analyzing industry data and producing forecasts; management of the electrical system; management of the power trade; and the management of the electrical system in the event of an emergency. The president of the company is General (res.) Shlomo “Sami” Turgeman.
