THE CHALLENGES WE’RE WORKING ON
To meet our growing energy needs, we’re turning to the sun for power.
HOW WE’RE SOLVING THEM
Converting solar light into electrical energy is a costly undertaking – until now. Researchers from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the University of Bochum, in Germany, have proposed using organic materials like crops, as fuel.
THE IMPACT OF OUR WORK
If these new methods for creating energy can be adapted for homes and businesses, it will continue to push the global community toward its goals for green energy and sustainability.
This is just some of the work you fund when you give to American Friends of the Hebrew University.
Founded in 1925, AFHU is a national, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, headquartered in New York City. We connect the passions of Americans to the talent at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, one of the world’s most distinguished academic and research institutions. Collectively, its students, faculty, and alumni have won eight Nobel Prizes, developed treatments for diseases, and ignited innovation that has led to more than 8,900 patents.
