DOE Partners with Israel for Clean Energy Initiative

Six projects approved for research and development.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Energy announced a new investment alongside Israel’s Ministry of Energy, providing six clean energy projects with $5.48 million in funding through the Binational Industrial Research and Development (BIRD) program. The projects include the development of sulfur thermal energy storage, water oxidation technology, a power grid stability control algorithm, and a miniaturized powertrain. 

“Through the long-standing and successful BIRD Energy program with our Israeli partners, we are supporting the innovation in renewable energy and energy efficiency needed to tackle the global climate emergency,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm. “The projects announced today will help us overcome barriers to scaling up carbon-free technology and supercharge the rapidly growing international clean energy economy.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Secretary Granholm would look to the Lord for wisdom in seeking renewable energy sources.
  • For Israel’s Minister of Energy, Karine Elharrar, as she leads energy efficiency efforts.
  • For the president and his advisors to seek God’s guidance in caring for the environment.
