BIRD, US DOE
Date: 2021-03-17
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in partnership with Israel's Ministry of Energy and the Israel Innovation Authority, is reporting the availability of $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 U.S. Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, BIRD Energy supports research and development that benefits both the U.S. and Israel, with a focus on commercializing sustainable energy technologies, create jobs, and increase energy security.

From 2009 to 2020, BIRD Energy funded 55 projects totaling $42 million. In addition to an estimated $55 million in funding matched by the private sector, BIRD Energy has attracted more than $700 million in venture capital and other follow-on investment to commercialize clean energy technologies.

For this funding offer, the deadline for executive summaries is June 30, 2021 with final proposals due August 13, 2021. (Source: US DOE, BIRD Energy, 15 Mar., 2021) Contact: BIRD Energy, www.birdf.com/bird-energy-call-proposals: US DOE, 202-586-5000, www.doe.gov
