The U.S.-India Science and Technology Endowment Fund and Social Alpha jointly launched an ignition grant to combat climate crisis. The initiative is looking for breakthrough technologies that will solve critical challenges for largescale societal impact in areas of — Next Generation Clean and Renewable Energy, Energy Storage, and Carbon Sequestration.
The U.S.-India Science and Technology Endowment Fund, in partnership with Social Alpha, announces a Call for Ignition Grants titled “Technology-based Energy Solutions: Innovations for Net Zero”. The program aligns with the goals of the U.S.-India Strategic Clean Energy Partnership, and will be administered by the binational Indo‑U.S. Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF).
The Call for Ignition Grants encourages out-of-the-box, innovative ideas from the community to address the goal of getting to net zero. Proposals should be based on sound science and engineering research and have tangible potential for commercial viability. The intent of the call would be to select and support “technology showstoppers” — promising joint U.S.-India S&T based entrepreneurial initiatives that address the development and implementation of new technologies, tools, and systems to address climate and clean energy challenges in the following focus areas:
- Next generation Clean and Renewable Energy
- Energy Storage
- Carbon Sequestration
