With lots of energy and enthusiasm a new platform for renewable energies, the GIREC, German-Israeli Renewable Energy Committee, was established on July 17th, 2012. The new committee is the response of the German-Israeli Chamber of Commerce and Industry to the successful trip of Israeli representatives from government institutions, politics and media that was organized by the Chamber on the topic “Energy Efficiency In Industry”. This trip took place in May 2012 in Baden-Wuerttemberg and Berlin.

One of the main tasks of GIREC is to bring together market leaders and smaller companies from both countries, so that the small and medium-sized enterprises can establish contact with the major players and large companies can benefit from the pioneering technologies of start-ups. In addition, market developments in both countries are to be discussed at an international level to be able to identify potential cooperation. Increased attention is to be paid to bilateral, European and international research funding programs. Common position papers will be developed for the annual German-Israeli intergovernmental consultations. (Read more here)
