The Jerusalem Municipality will promote through Eden a series of green moves to reduce air pollution, utilize renewable energy and save energy in public buildings.
The Jerusalem Mayor, Moshe Lion: "I welcome the implementation of a series of unique measures to reduce air pollution and utilize renewable energy in the city of Jerusalem. These moves will improve the quality of life in the city, contribute to cleaner air and maintain a green and friendly environment. Establishing a broad public infrastructure for electric vehicles will provide wider options for charging electric vehicles and using clean energy, along with connecting the city to the evolving global trend to encourage the transition to electric vehicles. "
The Jerusalem Municipality, with Eden company, for economic development in Jerusalem, released a tender for the installation and operation of electric charging stations throughout the city this week. The electric charging system, which will be set up in the first phase with the assistance of the Department of Energy, will include 100 charging stations, some of which will be located in public parking lots and some throughout the city, as well as two fast charging (DC) stands. In the second phase, the deployment of electric charging stations in the public space in Jerusalem will be expanded, in line with the expected increase in the use of the electric vehicle and the demand for charging positions in residential neighborhoods and employment centers. Meanwhile, the accelerated transition to use electric vehicles is expected to significantly reduce pollutant emissions across the city as well as lower the cost of using private vehicles.
In addition, Eden company has published another tender, the distribution of photovoltaic panels, in public buildings across the city to generate electricity from solar radiation, a move that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution while at the same time reducing the costs of public institutions such as schools, kindergartens and the like.
