Capital Nature, together with Eilat Eilot Renewable Energy and the Eilot regional council, established an experiment site and validation center for renewable energy technologies.
The site is located on Kibbutz Ketura in the Southern Arava and plays a pivotal role in the development of these technologies through providing the operational and administrative needs of each project.
The validation center accelerates these projects, helping them to contribute to the field of renewable energy by providing them with the tools they need to move from initial design theory to the stage of research, production and export.
Matalon Energy Resources has been operating in this site since 2009. The company focuses on PV generation of electricity from solar and wind energy. Electricity systems owned by Matalon are estimated at 150 000 kilowatts per year. The company has completed close to 90% of its pilot project at the validation center.
