Successful Innovation

With the help of the Israel-Brazil call for proposals and the Latin America Desk at the Innovation Authority, an optimal partner has been found for the development of a high-temperature thermal storage-based system for production floors in Brazil.

Thanks to this plan, a cooperation agreement was signed between Brenmiller Energy and the Brazilian company Fortlev.

The joint program included the construction of a prototype on one of Fortlev’s production floors and opened a window for acquaintance with other potential customers in Brazil.
