Hydrogen - alternative renewable fuel


Dor Group is always looking forward as part of its mission to transform traditional energy consumption - ensuring a cleaner, friendlier and sustainable future.

Around the world, governments are working against the clock to meet the  carbon-cutting commitments outlined in the Paris Agreement, the landmark international accord that aims to respond to climate change and its negative impacts.

In 2015, ahead of the Paris Conference, the Israeli government passed a resolution  setting national targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions per capita to 7.7 t CO2e (tons of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent) by 2030.

Alongside this, three sectoral targets - to be met by 2030 - were set:

  • Increase electricity generation from renewable energy sources to at least 17%.
  • Reduce private car mileage by 20% by 2030.
  • Reduce electricity consumption by at least 17%.

Countries across the globe are discovering clean hydrogen’s ability to overcome the environmental challenges presented by sectors with high CO2 emissions, including: energy, transportation and heavy industry.

With decarbonization efforts firmly underway, there’s currently an increased demand for alternative, renewable hydrogen - particularly within transportation.

Transportation’s renewable energy alternative to traditional fuels

Dor has been Israel’s leader in the production, storage and marketing of renewable hydrogen for more than 30 years.

During this time, Dor has gained unrivalled insights into hydrogen refuelling for many different types of transportation - ensuring the company’s success integrating hydrogen fuel into the local energy market.

Within transportation, including heavy transport, sea and private vehicles, renewable hydrogen gas delivers significant advantages over traditional fuels, including:

  • Higher energy density Just one kilogram of hydrogen provides the same amount of energy as 7.4 liters of gasoline.
  • Faster refuelling Hydrogen’s refuelling process is quick and easy. It takes just a few minutes to give vehicles the energy they need to travel hundreds of miles.
  • Zero emissions Totally clean, renewable hydrogen’s only waste product is water.

As fines for CO₂ rise in Israel and elsewhere, there is an urgent need to reduce carbon emission sinks. The race is on to develop hydrogen as a clean, efficient, cost-effective alternative.


Dor Motors is committed to supporting this conversion to cleaner and renewable energy sources.

The organization invests heavily in research and development to ensure its team of experts can deliver the infrastructure and knowledge governments and businesses need to shift away from traditional fuels.

Case study: Hydrogen refuelling in Haifa Bay

Currently, Dor is supporting Israel’s efforts to transform a major industrial zone in the coastal city of Haifa into an eco-friendly, commercial and residential hub.

Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, has evolved into a center for trade and industry over the past century.

Drawing on more than 30 years’ experience of renewable hydrogen production, management and refuelling, Dor recently completed yet another successful refuelling of a hydrogen-powered Italian submarine in the waters of Haifa Bay.

A submarine represents thousands of tons of power and innovation. Ensuring its energy security is only possible with a trusted, professional partner capable of delivering the expertise and dedication necessary.

The sub’s crew members met with Dor’s dedicated refuelling team. Their in-depth understanding and knowledge of the process ensured that the submarine was refuelled within tight timescales.

Dor’s knowledge and professionalism ensured that, after a night of mooring, the submarine was refuelled and able to continue its journey - on time - and with zero emissions.
