Daily Briefing Dec. 21, 2009 – Local renewable energy technology offers environmental hope

The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing is your 15-minute audio update on Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World, available every Sunday through Thursday.

Jessica Steinberg hosts Sue Surkes, environmental reporter, and Aaron Boxerman correspondent for Arab Affairs.

Surkes discusses topics and technologies covered during last week’s renewable energy conference in Eilat, including one exciting possibility for storing renewable energy.

Boxerman gives a glimpse of what’s happening in Gaza and the West Bank with the Omicron variety. This is especially true in Gaza, where vaccination incentives have been helpful, but more than half the population is still not vaccinated.

Boxerman also speaks out about the recent spate if stabbings committed by Palestinians against Israelis. Boxerman is not sure if this is a wave of stabbings or a single incident.

Finally, Surkes discusses industry complaints at the energy conference, as businesses and companies feel Israel’s pace is too slow for introducing new technologies, as well as advances with hydrogen.

These are the articles that were discussed:
