Plundering the Sun: The Israeli Solar Energy Industry and Palestinian Forced Displacement

The global demand for electricity is constantly rising, and with it – awareness of the irreversible ecological damage caused by using limited natural resources (oil and gas) for its production. This awareness has raised interest in generating electricity from renewable and non-polluting sources, also known as green energy.[1] Israel follows this trend and plans to generate 10% of its energy from solar power by 2020, backed by domestic and international corporations.
