Abstract: Palestine is a development country, which means that needs of all types of energy to great growth of quality life, economic development, and sustainable development. The energy consumption situation in Palestine is that the diesel fuel is dominant of total energy consumption. The major energy characteristics of energy in Palestine are non-availability and extraction of natural resource, unstable political, financial issues and population growth which means that there is no security energy situation in Palestine. There is no developed domestic energy resource; it is heavily depending on important of energy sources from other countries. The most market purchase is from Israel due to the political and logistical factors. The most electric power supply to Palestinian regions is dominated by imported from other countries. The Israel Electric Company (IEC) has dominated imported of electricity by 95.72% of the total of electrical energy imported in 2015. In general, lightly subsidized of energy sources and it can be comparison with neighborhood countries. For an example, the price of electricity in Palestine is much higher than the 2 % of Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. In this paper taking research on three renewable energy sources are solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy in many considerations are geography characteristics, projects are implemented, the strategy for 2020 are prepared by the Palestinian Energy Authority (PEA), drawbacks of this energy sources. Finally, the recommendations can be taken in consideration to development the renewable energy sector in Palestine to ensure security energy sources and may significant decrease importing energy from neighborhood countries and sustainable development and growth of socio-economics
