“We choose to live in a world free of dependence on crude oil, with a variety of clean and accessible means of transportation.”
Israel’s main effort in addressing this global challenge is the national program for alternative fuels in transportation (The Fuel Choices Initiative). The Initiative has been budgeted for ten years in order to create regulatory stability and an investment horizon for market stakeholders, and includes tools to strengthen scientific and applied research in the field, simplify bureaucracy, and strengthen entrepreneurship and industry. The Initiative is managed by a designated administration in the Prime Minister’s Office.
Based in Israel, it has brought together a team of researchers, innovators and private sector collaborators all striving towards the same goal with different methods.
