How will government decisions convert vision to reality? Through the Israeli Clean Energy Forum, launched yesterday by Israeli politicians, industrialists, investors and lawyers.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the new forum brings together many of the big guns in the environmental business world in Israel, such as the former director-general of the National Infrastructures Ministry Hezi Kugler, who will be the Forum’s new chairman.
Additional directors and founders include Orit Marom-Albeck, a partner at the Shibolet & Co. law firm in charge of their cleantech practice, and Yehuda Bronicki, the chairman of Ormat Industries.
The event was kicked off by Israel’s President Shimon Peres, a staunch advocate of a green Israel. This Green Prophet, though a big lover of Peres, does have to question some of Peres’ choices on how to protect the environment. The Red-Dead canal is one of his babies.
“The Israeli Clean Energy Forum’s activities will be directed at that aim on the basis of a professional platform that will assist decision makers and the market to internalize those policies in the widest manner possible,” Kugler said in a statement to the Jerusalem Post.
