The Ashalim Solar Energy Plant in the Negev

This video clip [01:28] from the YouTube Channel NoCamels, which reports on cutting edge Israeli innovations, shows Israel’s “Solar Valley” a massive clean energy “farm” in the Negev Desert. In 2018, the solar farm had four national goals:

  • Economic Goals: Reduce the amount of imported energy, and thereby decreasing trade deficit
  • Political Goals: Reduce dependence on foreign bodies
  • Ecological Goals: Decrease the amount of air pollution
  • Scientific Goals: Promote local technologies while also implementing new technologies from other countries

The project aims to provide 10% of the total energy intake in Israel by 2020.
