The Solar Fuels Israeli Center of Research Excellence (I-CORE) is an initiative of the government of Israel to generate innovative solutions for the sustainable production of liquid fuels.


Recruiting the expertise of 26 top Israeli scientists from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, and the Weizmann Institute of Science, the multidisciplinary team is active in basic and applied research to advance the conversion and storage of solar energy into liquid fuels. The Solar Fuels I-CORE team is led by Prof. Gideon Grader, head of the Grand Technion Energy Program (GTEP), together with the Solar Fuels I-CORE Scientific Management.


The Solar Fuels I-CORE is a powerful magnet to 10 excelling young Israeli researchers returning from abroad. Incorporating world-class researchers in the field of energy and world-class infrastructure at Israel’s leading universities, our I-CORE is positioned to fulfill the promise of solar fuels, while playing a powerful role in educating the generations of tomorrow.
