Israel has always been one step ahead of the technological world; from the contemporary communication of IMing and text messaging to the life saving radiation-free cancer devices, Israeli scientists have been at the top of their class for the past sixty years. It is, then, no surprise that they have come through yet again in developing methods of sustainability, with plans of action that are essential for our modern world. Realizing the immanent threat of climate change and the immense effect our actions have on the environment,Israel has become a leading force in the worldwide efforts to achieve eco-friendliness and partnership with the earth. A team from the Israeli Institute of Technology is working on the efficiency of non-polluting powered cars. More than 85% of the country’s waste is treated in an environmentally sound way. Israel has the highest number of solar power heaters per capita. An Israeli company was the first to install a large-scale solar power plant in California’s Mojave Desert. These are just a few of Israel’s many eco-accomplishments to date, and, make no mistake, they are just beginning; plans of the world’s largest solar power plant to be built in the Negev as well as tax breaks for residents of “green buildings” suggest their best efforts are yet to come.

The country uses its environmental methods not only towards the betterment of our natural world, but as a means to achieve stability between people in the Middle East. The Arava Institute for Environmental Studies on Kibbutz Ketura is, in my opinion, one of the country’s most important successes for the cause so far.
Arava is a center for leadership that stresses the environmental cooperation between both individuals and entire nations to achieve peace. By inviting young men and women of all religions to focus on their similarities rather then their differences, literally to recognize their shared turf, students have the opportunity to take responsibility for their actions, and, together, to design a more appropriate way to act – towards both the world itself and its inhabitant – in the future. In 2003, students launched a research enterprise to design sustainable water management for the Dead Sea basin. This effort was monumental; the endeavor which focused on a shared future was the first of its kind to include Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Another completed project of the Institute was a study of environmental education in the Israeli school system. Its shocking conclusions urged the Ministry of education to implement environmental literacy more seriously in schools. Some of the Arava’s current projects include an effort to restore the quality of streams in Israel, a study on the dangerous health effects of certain chemicals that pollute the air, and working to adapt different types of plants to the Israeli climate.

There is so much to be learned from the small state that is our homeland. Israel’s dedication to the cause is incredible but not unexpected. The country continues to live up to the ability that is synonymous with its name. So don’t let her small size or youth deceive you; and don’t be surprised if it’s Israel who leads the world into the next phase of history.

Procedure of loading batteries of an electrical vehicle by Aeolic system

The recharges of batteries, which supplies energy to the electric motor of a vehicle, will be carried out through an Aeolic System composed by the following elements:

-rotor

-generator,

-controller with load

-rectifier

The vehicle, being left over, will always have some air amount whose speed will be directly propertional to the same speed of the vehicle.

The air will enter in the autobody by the embrasures placed in the frontal part of the vehicle, and it will canalized towards the rotores.

The rotores could be one or more and they will be placed inside the auto body in a way not to hinder the advance of the vehicle creating friction.

The Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG) concurs of extracting the maximum

power by the rotor.

The controller with loads serves to prevent the damaging of the batteries.

The generated current will be “alternating current trifase” (AC) and will be converted from the rectifier in “direct current” (DC).

The generator, the controllers electronics, the rectifier and the batteries will be placed into the vehicle.

The direct current, finally, will be canalized, by a power cable , towards the batteries and it will recharge to them.

It will be also possible to load the batteries when the vehicle is stopped.

This is possible because the wind, investing the car from several points, will be put towards a rotor that will create described energy.

Purposes of the plan and advantages:

* to produce energy to cost 0 and 0 emissions, bringing a remarkable

economic, ecological and social advantage.

* the energy produced in march feeds the same march of the vehicle and there is no need to stop for the refueling.

* development of an innovative system based on rotators and generators placed into the autobody.
