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.

Thursday, May 19, 2011 to Friday, May 20, 2011

On May 19–20, 2011, ARPA-E and the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering [ASD(R&E)] held a workshop in Arlington, VA to explore advanced scientific and technical challenges to the development of a Hybrid Energy Storage Module (HESM).

2011 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit
Monday, February 28, 2011 to Wednesday, March 2, 2011

The second annual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit brought together key players from across the energy ecosystem to share ideas for developing and deploying the next generation of clean energy technologies.

Power electronics in PV systems
Tuesday, February 8, 2011 to Wednesday, February 9, 2011

The workshop aimed to bring together some of the world’s foremost experts in PV technology as well as leaders from industry, academia, and government with diverse perspectives to discuss the challenges and opportunities related to the generation of solar power.

High density thermal energy storage
Monday, January 31, 2011

Thermal energy transport and conversion play a very significant role in more than 90% of energy technologies. Approximately two thirds of thermal energy is wasted. Thermal energy storage can significantly reduce this waste and enhance the efficiency of energy delivery and consumption.

Green Electricity Network Generation
Monday, December 13, 2010

The goal of the workshop was to develop new ideas and identify the most promising R&D pathway to better accomodate the alternatives to traditional electricity generation and the use of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles while improving the reliability, controllability, and performance of the power grid.

Critical Materials Technology
Monday, December 6, 2010

The importance of critical materials in the energy sector has been highlighted by the mismatch between the rapidly growing demands relative to limited global supply of rare earth materials. Technology solutions focused on both the supply-side and demand-side of critical materials challenges are of interest. Specifically, ARPA-E was interested in exploring potentially disruptive (not incremental) technology solutions.
