ABOUT THE ISRAEL STRATEGIC ALTERNATIVE ENERGY FOUNDATION (I-SAEF):
I-SAEF, a supporting foundation of the San Francisco Jewish Community Federation, is a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit which funds game-changing alternative energy research at Israeli universities. Launched in 2009, I-SAEF funds are already supporting breakthrough research such as converting the pollutant CO2 into synthetic fuel.
I-SAEF’s goal is to fund a minimum of 100 grants of $200,000 each over a 10-year period. Grants are awarded after a rigorous screening process performed by I-SAEF’s Scientific and Commercial Advisors, including (among others) Nobel Laureates Professor Paul Berg and Professor Roger Kornberg, and commercialization expert Jack Levy, General Partner of Israel Cleantech Ventures.
In 2010 I-SAEF focused its funding on breakthrough solar energy research projects. In 2011 the focus was on batteries for electric cars and utility-scale energy storage. In 2012, grants will target synthetic fuels from renewable sources (including biofuels).
