The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Energy and the Israel Innovation Authority, has made available $4 million in funding for innovative clean energy technologies.
This funding comes from Binational Industrial Research & Development (BIRD) Energy, a program that promotes U.S.-Israel partnerships in bringing renewable and energy efficiency technologies to market.
Established by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, BIRD Energy supports research and development that benefits both the United States and Israel, with a focus on commercializing sustainable energy technologies that improve economic competitiveness, create jobs, and increase energy security.
BIRD Energy provides maximum conditional grants of up to $1 million from at least $4 million in available funds. The deadline for executive summaries is June 30, 2021. The deadline for final proposals is August 13, 2021, and decisions will be made in late October 2021.
