BGU researchers, pioneers and leaders in renewable fuels for over three decades, are powering the future of energy.
The goal of the BGU Energy Initiative is to develop innovative solutions to the world’s energy challenges. With proven track records in renewable liquid fuels, solar energy, nuclear energy, fuel cells, energy efficiency, and energy economics, scientists are creating commercially viable renewable energy sources. A technology for the production of jet fuel developed from vegetable oils is ready for commercialization. Molecular biologists are exploring how to extract energy from bacteria. Others are re-designing nuclear reactors, and improving energy-efficient architecture.
“There is a pressing need to produce alternative fuels that are sustainable, technologically viable and environmentally acceptable. We can now use zero cost resources, carbon dioxide, water, energy from the sun, and combine them to get real fuels.”
– Prof. Moti Hershkowitz
