About a year ago, Tesla confirmed its intentions to enter the Israeli market by registering a subsidiary there under the name of Tesla Motors Israel. In November, the Tesla Energy division of the company began its work in Israel.
According to the company's registry entry, Tesla sought to work in Israel not only in the sale of electric vehicles but also in the field of renewable energy sources, in particular solar energy. The registry entry reads:
"The importation, distribution, sale, maintenance and repair of electric vehicles and mobile energy storage systems, energy generation systems and equipment, including solar panels, solar energy systems, and/or other solar energy conversion systems, and in general all other energy generation systems, accompanying products, parts, accessories and accompanying equipment, and to develop, own, operate, purchase, sell, maintain, plan, engineer, obtain, build, install and order fixed energy storage systems, and energy generation systems and equipment (whether directly or by setting up special purpose entities formed for the purposes of maintaining assets as mentioned.)"
And now, Globes sources report that Tesla Energy has started operations in Israel and is participating in several strategic tenders for the construction of power plants. Tesla is also in talks with private companies in Israel to supply its Megapack lithium-ion batteries. In addition, the company also is participating in tenders on supply centers for private electricity producers including Dalia Energy.
Tesla's energy storage solutions are very popular. Several large and hundreds of smaller batteries have already been launched around the world. Further construction of even more power plants with Tesla batteries is also constantly ongoing, which provides for the transition from a mine-and-burn hydrocarbon economy towards an electric economy based on renewable energy sources.
