National Infrastructures Minister Binyamim Ben-Eliezer announced on Monday the establishment of a task force to focus solely on the advancement of natural gas and alternative energy (including wind, solar and hydro) projects, as well as the privatization of electricity in the country. "It is my intention to be personally involved in the process of advancing the country's natural gas and alternative energy progress," Ben Eliezer said upon announcing the staff. "Our goal is to secure other sources of energy for Israel as quickly as possible." The staff, which will be headed by Hezi Kugler, director-general of the National Infrastructures Ministry, will also include managers and directors from the Israel Electric Company and numerous gas and oil companies, as well as the Ministry's legal counsel, will convene once every two weeks with Ben-Eliezer to update him on various ongoing projects in the natural gas and electric sectors, as well as help streamline the process of decreasing dependence on oil and coal as energy sources.
