Monday, November 12, 2012 to Tuesday, November 13, 2012

This workshop explored alternatives to the current battery pack designs that employ tightly packed battery cells in rigid structural enclosures that add weight and cost and do not contribute to vehicle structural function.

Thursday, September 6, 2012

This workshop focused on technologies that could convert natural gas into transportable liquids and/or chemicals and enable increased use of stranded methane and bio-gas in order to reduce petroleum imports and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Monday, March 26, 2012 to Friday, March 30, 2012

ARPA-E hosted the Emerging Ideas Workshops, comprised of small groups of experts to focus on examining specific technologies, to explore new technology areas that may merit the creation of a full program(s) at some point in the future.

Diverging road sign
Friday, March 16, 2012

This workshop focused on new transportation technologies, such as alternative fuels and advanced power train vehicles that have the potential to achieve ARPA-E mission areas of reducing foreign imports and cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
