The PERFORM program aims to shift the operations and planning to a risk-driven paradigm. Future operations and investment strategies will more closely resemble portfolio management practices; resource offers will be differentiated by their overall historical performance and prediction of their real-time performance. This shift enables the ability to balance the tradeoff between minimizing costs versus delivery risk while providing the foundation for an incentive compatible environment that efficiently mitigates risk. This program will provide grid operators a transparent quantification of their system position and overall risk exposure, which does not exist today.

May 15, 2019 to May 16, 2019

ARPA-E convened people from diverse industries to discuss technologies for enabling advanced nuclear reactors to achieve operating cost profiles approximating those of natural gas combined cycle plants.

January 15, 2019

ARPA-E plans to organize a one day Industry Day” in the Washington DC area, on Tuesday, January 15th, 2019.  The primary purposes of the industry day will be (1) to evaluate and strengthen the draft technical section in the RFI prior to releasing the associated possible future program, and (2) to facilitate the formation of highly multidisciplinary teams. Participants will lend their technical expertise to suggest any necessary refinements to the draft technical section and to seek clarifications on its objectives. 

December 11, 2018 to December 12, 2018

ARPA-E held a kick-off meeting for its Modeling-Enhanced Innovations Trailblazing Nuclear Energy Reinvigoration (MEITNER) program from December 11-12, 2018 at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Charlotte, NC.

September 21, 2018

ARPA-E hosted a roundtable discussion on “Operating at Extremes: Tools for Enhanced Geothermal Systems” on September 21, 2018 in Washington, D.C. Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) have the potential to improve the economics and reduce the geographic restrictions of geothermal energy, but unlocking this resource will require changes to surveying and drilling technologies. ARPA-E convened leading experts in academic geosciences, petroleum engineering, enhanced geothermal systems, high-temperature electronics, space-based measurements, and geological storage to identify innovations in subsurface measurement and drilling techniques to enable economic operation of EGS.
