ARPA-E’s RANGE (Robust Affordable Next Generation Energy Storage Systems) program funded high-risk research projects to change the way electric vehicle battery systems are built. The program is a success both in terms of individual projects and in reshaping the paradigm about energy storage as a whole to include system-level considerations.

The Agency’s first compilation booklet of impact sheets, published in 2016, began the process of analyzing and cataloging some of the agency’s most successful projects. One year later ARPA-E’s research investments continue to pay off, with a number of current and alumni project teams successfully commercializing their technologies and advancing the state of the art in transformative areas of energy science and engineering. This document is a compilation of the second volume of these impactful technologies.

With aggressive commitments to mitigate the impacts of climate change and emphasis on maintaining an advantage in technological development in an increasingly globalized marketplace, the U.S. government is actively taking measures to ensure the nation’s environmental and economic health and sustainability. As part of its broader strategy, with motivation from the National Academies, the United States established the Advanced Research Project Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) within the Department of Energy (DOE) through the America Competes Act in 2007. The agency was allotted an initial appropriation of $400 million in 2009 as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
