Opportunities for funding U.S.-Israel cooperation for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

BIRD Energy, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, announced its sixth funding cycle for U.S.-Israel joint project proposals with a focus on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency.
Opportunities for funding U.S.-Israel cooperation for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

To be considered, a project proposal must include R&D cooperation between two companies or cooperation between a company and a university/research institution (one from the U.S. and one from Israel). The proposal should have significant commercial potential and the project outcome should lead to commercialization.

Examples of areas of research and development themes within the scope of this call are: Solar Power, Alternative Fuels, Advanced Vehicle Technologies, Smart Grid, Water-Energy Nexus, Wind Energy or any other Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency technology.

The conditional grant per project is up to 50 percent of the R&D costs associated with the joint project, and up to a maximum of $1 million per project.

The application process is web-based and requires prior discussion with the BIRD Foundation. Initial concept submissions are due by July 9, 2014 and full proposals are due by September 9, 2014. Decisions on projects selected for funding will be made during November, 2014.

BIRD Energy was established following an agreement between the U.S. Department of Energy/EERE and the Israel Ministry of National Infrastructures, Energy and Water Resources to promote and support joint research and collaborations in the field of Alternative Energy and Energy Efficiency. BIRD Energy is administered by the BIRD Foundation which has been promoting cooperation between U.S. and Israeli companies in various technology areas since 1977.
