The article focuses on companies based in Israel involved in clean technology. Metrolight, an efficient-lighting company produces smart electronic ballasts used to operate High Intensity Discharge lighting, the main source of outdoor lighting in commercial, industrial and municipal applications. Two Israeli companies that achieved success in alternative energy include Ormat Industries in geothermal energy and Solel Systems in solar thermal energy. The Israeli government is also raising its cleantech profile. In April 2007, the National Infrastructure Ministry announced that it would invest in alternative energy startups in an attempt to reduce the country's dependence on imported fossil fuel.
