In this upcoming Martin Kace lecture, Yosef Abramowitz will share his unconventional journey from Boston Jewish educator to Israeli solar impact investor. Abramowitz has been from the Negev to the heart of East Africa and attended 2015 Paris Climate Conference as a member of the Israeli Delegation. He will discuss how being an observant Jew and human rights activist were central to broadening his vision and expertise as an Israeli solar investor. 2015 Nobel Prize nominee Yosef Abramow-itz is President of Gigawatt Global and its Israeli affiliate Energiya Global. He was nominated for Gigawatt Global’s work with the Rwandan solar field project, which now provides 6% of the country’s power. He co-founded the first Israeli solar company, Arava Power, in 2006. CNN named Abramowitz one the top six Green Pioneers Worldwide.
