The workshop convened leading experts in waste heat recovery, materials development, and novel solid-state materials technology (emerging compositions, materials synthesis/processing, combinatorial screening/optimization, robust module designs) to identify innovative research paths for the development of next-generation lower grade (

October 27, 2016 to October 28, 2016

ARPA-E held a workshop on “Rewiring Anaerobic Digestion” on October 27-28, 2016 in the Washington, D.C. area. The workshop brought together experts in the fields of anaerobic digestion, microbiome science, microbial consortia engineering, electrocatalysis, and chemical engineering (catalytic hydrogenation and liquid-liquid separations), to identify feasible research pathways forward for the development of disruptive technologies that can enable enhanced hydrolysis, prevention of methanogenesis, volatile fatty acid (VFA) separations, and downstream upgrading to hydrocarbons.

September 29, 2016 to September 30, 2016

ARPA-E held a workshop on the "Interconnected - Highly Utilized Grid” on September 29-30, 2016 in Bethesda, Maryland. The workshop convened leading experts in power systems, modeling, data analytics, and control systems to identify potential paths for disruptive technologies aimed at large scale deployment of renewables and distributed energy resources (DERs). The discussion focused on the challenge and promise of maximally utilizing the existing grid, while accounting for upcoming changes in Transmission and Distribution structures, as well as generation and load patterns.
