This massive bill deals mostly with U.S. domestic energy reform, but one section—the U.S.-Israel Energy Cooperation Act, which was subsequently inserted into the bill—establishes a grant program to implement an energy cooperation agreement between the U.S. Dept. of Energy and Israel’s Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure. As such, the act supports unclassified research, development, and commercialization projects related to improved energy efficiency and alternative renewable energy sources (e.g., solar, biomass, wind, geothermal, fossil, and wave and tidal energy), as well as advanced battery technology. Grantees must be a joint venture between U.S. and Israeli entities (governmental, for-profit business, academic institution, national laboratory, or non-profit organization). The bill establishes an advisory board to the U.S. secy. of energy to oversee the grant program, comprising three persons: 1 representative of the federal government, and 2 chosen from lists compiled by the U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation and the U.S.-Israel Binational Industrial Research and Development Foundation, respectively. Funding will come from appropriations enacted according to Sec. 931 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (H.R. 6, public law 109-58): $632 m. for 2007, $743 m. for 2008, and $852 m. for 2009. Appropriations beyond 2009 are not defined in that bill.
