The Eilat-Eilot Renewable Energy Initiative operates under the Eilat and Eilot regional municipalities and has been advocating Renewable Energy as a catalyst for regional development for the last 4 years.  They started with a vision of a way to bring industrial development to Israel’s sun drenched desert and Red Sea resort localation. They took note that the area is an ideal place to create a model for a new paradigm in energy deployment that would attract the type of business opportunities the region needs. Its early pioneers established the Eilat-Eilot Renewable Energy Initiative to guide the implementation of an energy independent region – the first in Israel and the world.

The Eilat-Eilot Renewable Energy Initiative launched the Eilat-Eilot Alternative Energy Project to work toward the goal of a model for solving the world’s energy crisis. This model engages and advances allof the relevant social sectors and necessary technologies, focusing them on a integrated multifaceted goal of creating an energy independent region.  This endeavor is giving rise to vibrant substantial regional commercial developments and business opportunities.

Eilat and the entire Eilot Region is considerally distant from the center of Israel. The regional leadership wishes to expand its populations by attracting a high caliber of professionals that will come to the region and become integrated in community life and advance new fields of business.  The burgeoning field of renewable energy creates new and diverse technological and scientific jobs based on excellent natural and human resources.

Their activities include:

  • Renewable energy education
  • R&D
  • Commercialization and Pilot projects
  • Renewable energy production
  • Energy conservation and branding
  • Advancing suitable regulation

The Eilat-Eilot Alternative Energy Project is widely recognized by the government and public sphere for its potential and importance.

Eilat and the Eilot Region is located at the southern most tip of Israel on the beaches of the Red Sea.  Its distance from Israel’s concentrated population center begs a solution that can give the area energy independence, the perfect challenge and opportunity suited to a revolutionary project of this kind.  The Eilat-Eilot Alternative Energy Initiative’s goals includes strengthening the local population and community by tracting high caliber of professionals drawn to this exciting unique national project.  The business, technology, research and deployment underway, plus the possibility to be a part of technological innovations in the clean energy field provide attractive opportunities for professional advancement.
