Eitan Parnass, Director General & Founder of the Green Energy Association of Israel and secretary of Global Solar Council, said that the electrical connection between Cyprus, Israel and Greece through the Eurasia interconnector would improve the potential of Cyprus and Israel to further develop renewable energy sources (RES).

In this area, he added, Cyprus and Israel could develop further cooperation, since there are Israeli companies interested in investing in renewable energy in Cyprus.
