The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in Jerusalem and the Government of Japan agreed on Thursday to join efforts in a project entitled “Reconstructing and strengthening the electricity supply system in Gaza with renewable energy”.

It aims at supporting the installation of a solar photovoltaic system for Gazan households, thanks to Japan’s supplementary funding.

According to Tokumitsu Kobayashi, Director of Jerusalem Office at UNOPS,

“This project would contribute to the Palestinian Authority’s National Energy Efficiency Action Plan that aims to achieve 10% of domestic electricity generation to come from renewable energy by 2020.”

UNOPS has been working to several projects in the State of Palestine since 2014.

Out of the Darkness a Light will be Shinning in Gaza thanks to Japan’s Kindness & Thoughtful Actions to improve Gaza’s shocking electricity crisis … plus it ticks the environmental modern sustainable energy box. GOD BLESS JAPAN. I hate power cuts & camping… this is an exceptionally good treat.
