Energy & Israeli Foreign Policy: A Virtual Israeli Center Series with Dr. Elai Rettig

As the world faces increasing environmental threats due to climate change, Israel was marked as a promising source of technological innovation in solar energy. What happened to that promise, and what are Israel’s chances of decarbonizing its own energy market?

Dr. Elai Rettig is the Israeli Institute Teaching Fellow in Israeli and Environmental Studies at Washington University in St. Louis.  In this three-part study, Dr. Rettig will explore the interplay between energy security and foreign policy in Israel from 1948 to the present.

This lecture is the third of a three-part series.
