Israel names Tel Aviv University's Renewable Energy Center a 'Center of Research Excellence'
Date:4/18/2012

With 55 senior researchers spanning seven faculties, the Renewable Energy Center at Tel Aviv University has made a commitment. A multi-disciplinary and innovative hub in a crucial area of research, its mission is to preserve the world's natural resources while advancing Israel's economy and security. Now the Center has been recognized by the state and named an National Research Center for Petroleum Alternatives for Transportation by Promoting Electrical Propulsion and Electric Vehicles.

Prof. Yossi Rosenwaks, head of the Renewable Energy Center, says he and his colleagues are honored to have won a position as a National Research Center, a new initiative by the Israeli government to promote Israel's intellectual creativity and foster fruitful collaborations between leading research institutions throughout the country. The designation provides grant money to support the return of outstanding Israeli researchers from abroad, build state-of-the-art laboratories and work spaces, and fund research efforts.

"This is a very prestigious honor, and reflects the excellence of the research groups involved. It will enable us to do much more work and to progress much faster toward the goal of developing a power source for electric vehicles," says Prof. Emanuel Peled, who will be leading the center at TAU along with Prof. Dina Golodnitsky. "We are in search of a breakthrough in science and technology to achieve this."

Supporting new facilities and talent

The funding will help elevate the university's Fuel Cell Laboratory to a world class facility, financing the purchase of state-of-the-art technological equipment and providing funds for scholarships and new faculty positions. The researchers' aim is to develop new materials, novel components, and devices for fuses and batteries in Lithium Air and Sodium Air systems. Prof. Peled hopes to develop electric vehicles with a 310-mile range at an affordable cost, ultimately reducing Israel
