Analysis: Israel's plans to tap into wind power take shape: ISRAEL: Following years with its capacity stalled

According to Gadi Hareli, CEO of the Israeli Wind Energy Association, this is a result of measures taken over the last four years. To help reach its renewables target of 10% power generation by 2020, equating to around 1GW of wind, the government introduced a feed-in tariff (FIT) in 2011 up to a limit of 800MW for turbines over 50kW. It then issued two calls for proposals in 2013, which attracted over 30 projects totalling 2.5GW of wind energy, and last summer published its national master plan with what Hareli called "clear regulations and requirements". Not that it is all plain sailing. The government last year reduced the allocation to 730MW , after several attempts at deeper cuts, arguing that progress was too slow. The FIT is also likely to be cut this year, probably to somewhere around NIS 0.43/kWh (€0.096/kWh) Hareli believes. In 2014 it stood at NIS 0.54/kWh (€0.12...
