WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Energy and the Israel Innovation Authority, today announced $4 million in available funding for developing innovative clean energy technologies. This year’s call for proposals focuses explicitly on combating climate change through innovation that scales up carbon-free technologies and reduces the climate impact of natural gas and other associated infrastructure, such as carbon capture and methods to reduce leakage in natural gas systems. Funding for the projects comes through Binational Industrial Research & Development (BIRD) Energy program, which promotes U.S.–Israel partnerships in bringing renewable and energy efficiency technologies to market.  “For over ten years the BIRD Energy program has demonstrated success in driving clean energy innovation and we are excited to expand upon this progress with a crucial focus on using technology to fight the global crisis of climate change,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “The BIRD program is proof positive that the more we share resources and ideas with allies around the world, the closer we get to the clean energy solutions needed to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.” 

Established by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, the BIRD Energy program supports research …
