Israel - US Clean Energy Projects

Last updated: 21 March 2022

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Israel’s Ministry of Energy (MoE) along with the Israel Innovation Authority have selected eight clean energy projects to receive USD 7.15 million under the Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) Energy program. The total value of the projects is $17.4 million, which includes $10.25 million in cost share from the companies selected for funding. 


The developed technologies include:

- high-power, high-capacity solid-state batteries with novel electrode components     

- eco-engineered concrete products for structurally sound scour protection and ecological uplift of offshore wind energy infrastructure        

- electric aircraft battery     

- low-cost fuel cell system based on hydroxide exchange membranes     

- ultra-fast charging power bank for mobile devices     

- silicon anode, nickel rich cathode, high-energy high-safety AA Li-Ion Cell for industrial internet of things applications (IOT)     

- next generation heat and power solutions     

- an 80kW Gallium Nitride (GaN) based dual motor drive power inverter for both plug-in and battery electric vehicles
