The Israel Ministry of Energy, The Israel Innovation Authority (IIA), and U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) have announced a new Call for Proposals from the U.S.-Israel Center of Excellence in Energy, Engineering and Water Technology (also known as the U.S.-Israel Energy Center) for cooperation in cybersecurity. The hope is to develop tools and technology relating to energy cyber and cyber-physical security for essential infrastructure. This is one of four main areas the Energy Center focuses on, with others relating to fossil fuels, energy storage, and energy-water nexus. In July, the foundation invested $8 million in 10 new collaborations between U.S and Israeli companies.
