Named by CNN as one of the top six "Green Pioneers" worldwide, entrepreneur, financier and activist Yosef Abramowitz is co-founder of Israel's leading solar power enterprises, Arava Power Company and Energiya Global Capital – where he currently serves as CEO and President.

Most recently, his company established and financed the first utility-scale solar field in eastern Sub-Saharan Africa. The project, which is being built on land owned by a youth village inhabited by orphans of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, will provide training for them and is expected to supply about eight percent of Rwanda's energy needs.
