Field Trip 2017 Israel
SEEEI (The Society of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in Israel) and EUREL's Young Engineers' Panel (YEP) organized the Field Trip to Israel in 2017.
The EUREL Field Trip offered the opportunity to meet with decision makers of Israel's energy and electrical industry, to study the limitations of an isolated and young energy market, and to learn about the impact of Natural Gas fields discovery.
The EUREL Field Trip included among others a Technology Tour (Programme) to conventional and renewable power generation facilities, and gave a glimpse of the many historical sites of the Holy Land.
The Field Trip included a visit to Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city at the northern tip of the Red Sea, and provided the opportunity to take part in Electricity 2017, the annual convention of SEEEI. Participants of the EUREL Field Trip also presented posters during the convention.
Furthermore, the students and young engineers took actively part in the International Panel (which was co-organized by EUREL YEP) and had the opportunity to network with Israeli students and the young engineers forum. At the International Panel it was discussed how global trends will influence and change the energy sector. The main topic was “The struggle of digital transformation in established industries - fusion of formerly unrelated industry branches”.
