Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
Israel depends almost totally on imported fuel; domestic production of petroleum and natural gas is negligible. In 2009, total primary energy supply reached 21.9 Mtoe with oil representing 50%, coal, 385 and natural gas 8%. The share of renewable resources in Israel’s primary energy mix is relatively modest with a share of 3.4%. New technologies are opening up a number of new energy production opportunities in Israel. Among the most important are the Tamar and Leviathan deepwater fields, both located in the Mediterranean Sea west of Haifa.
