BIRD Energy has launched a funding call for US-Israel joint project proposals with a focus on 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 United States, and one from Israel.

The proposal should have significant commercial potential and the project outcome should lead to commercialization.

The following areas of research and development themes are within the scope of this call: 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% of the R&D costs associated with the joint project, and up to a maximum of $1 million per project.

Initial concept submissions are due by June 29, 2016, and full proposals are due by August 11, 2016.

Decisions on projects selected for funding will be made on October 24, 2016, BIRD Energy informed.

BIRD Energy was established following an agreement between the US Department of Energy/EERE and the Israel Ministry of Energy and Water Resources to promote and support joint research and collaborations in the field of alternative energy and energy efficiency.
