“BIRD Energy”
is the implementation of a cooperation agreement between the U.S. Department of Energy, the Israel Ministry of Energy jointly with the Israel Innovation Authority, and the BIRD Foundation.

This program develops innovation through U.S.- Israel cooperation on a range of clean energy technologies, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, natural gas, and energy–water technologies.

To be considered, a project proposal should 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)
♦ Innovation in all areas of renewable energy and energy efficiency, such as solar and wind
power, advanced vehicle technologies and alternative fuels, smart grid, storage, water-energy
nexus, advanced manufacturing, AI for energy management,etc.
♦ Innovation in natural gas and other associated technologies
♦ Significant commercial potential; the project outcome should lead to commercialization

The maximum conditional grant is $1M per project, and no more than 50% of the joint R&D budget.
