Monday, December 10, 2012

This workshop convened technical and market experts for the discussion and exploration of transformative technologies for scaling chemoautotrophic biofuel production. The purpose of the event was to convene current ARPA-E “Electrofuels” performers, as well as other technical and market experts, to report out and share information.

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

This workshop explored approaches that combined single carbon metabolism, industrial biotechnology, synthetic biology experts for the discussion and exploration of transformative biological technologies for methane-to-liquid fuels in the context of potential impact, technical parameters, and cost.

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.

2012 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit
Monday, February 27, 2012 to Wednesday, February 29, 2012

The ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit is designed to bring together key players from across the energy ecosystem--researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporate executives, and government officials--to share ideas for developing and deploying the next generation of energy technologies.

Natural Gas Vehicle Technologies Workshop
Thursday, January 26, 2012

The focus of this workshop was identifying novel technology learning curves that have the potential to drastically cut the cost and complexity of natural gas vehicles and refueling infrastructure, in order to reduce U.S. petroleum imports via increased use of domestic natural gas.
