Yosef Abramowitz

Named by CNN as one of the top six Green Pioneers worldwide, Yosef Abramowitz serves as President of the Arava Power Company, Israel’s leading solar developer. Arava Power built the first grid-connected solar field in Israel and over the last year has closed on $300 million of projects, with a further $1.5 billion of projects in the pipeline.

An entrepreneur, environmentalist, and human rights activist, Yosef has established Energiya Global to bring solar power on a commercial basis to developing nations.

Yosef was named to the Jerusalem Post’s list of 50 most influential Jews worldwide in 2011 and 2012, and has been co-nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yosef was also awarded “Person of the Year” by the 2012 Israel Energy and Business Convention.
