US Department of energyNovember 5, 2017 | The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced five new projects in partnership with Israel worth a total of over $10 million. Israel’s Ministry of Energy (MOE) and the Israel Innovation Authority will work with the US energy department through the Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Energy program on issues related to hydrogen storage, advanced biofuels, sustainable transportation, and energy efficiency, the DOE said in a statement. The projects are valued at $10.5 million, with $4.8 million coming from the US energy department. US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said the “BIRD Foundation has served as a matchmaker to develop partnerships between US and Israeli researchers at the forefront of technology across the industrial spectrum. This kind of collaboration will be mutually beneficial and allow both countries to achieve their economic and energy security goals.” Israel’s Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said “together with the BIRD Foundation we can encourage joint R&D efforts that will contribute significantly to the bright and safe future of our world.” The five projects include partnerships between Israel’s Brenmiller Energy Ltd. based in Rosh Ha’ayin and the Power Authority of the State of New York to develop high-temperature storage based on combined heat and power; Rehovot-based CelDezyner Ltd and Milford, Ohio’s AdvanceBio LLC to “develop a process for the production of ethanol from lignocellulosic feedstocks”; Rehovot-based QDM Ltd. and Broomfield, Colorado’s ALD NanoSolutions Inc. to “develop third-generation high-temperature superconducting (HTS) cables”; Tel Aviv’s SoftWheel Ltd. and Detroit Bikes to develop “an energy-efficient, low-maintenance, high-performance bicycle”; and Kadima-based TerraGenic Ltd. and Triton Systems, Inc. of Chelmsford, Massachusetts, to “develop a safe hydrogen transport and storage system.”
