The US and Israeli governments announced a new funding cycle for carbon-free energy initiatives through The Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation (BIRD). The nations will invest up to $1 million per project for renewable energy research and development efforts involving at least one American and one Israeli company. The new funding cycle is part of larger efforts to address the global climate crisis through innovation and technology. Project topics may range from “solar and wind power, advanced vehicle technologies, alternative fuels, artificial intelligence and many other renewable energy technologies.”
