Events & Workshops

October 10, 2019 to October 11, 2019

https://arpa-e.energy.gov/sites/default/files/Matthews_ARPA-E%20JCM.pdfThe Rapid Encapsulation of Pipelines Avoiding Intensive Replacement Workshop (REPAIR) workshop sought to reduce costs for replacing bare steel and cast iron gas distribution pipes by fabricating new, “smart” pipes inside the old pipes using robotics, advanced composite materials, and new inspection tools.

September 26, 2019 to September 27, 2019

ARPA-E sought information regarding promising pathways toward improving the carbon-conversion efficiency of renewable feedstocks to products. This workshop explored opportunities to reduce the lifecycle carbon emissions from biofuel and bioproduct pathways through highly efficient directed flux of biomass carbon into products with minimal carbon loss as CO2. Workshop participants explored how inexpensive clean power can enable novel bioprocess designs that limit or completely avoid carbon loss during biomass conversion.

August 13, 2019 to August 14, 2019

Building on the ARPA-E ALPHA program and synergies with the Fusion Industry Association and the National Academies recommendation, ARPA-E is exploring opportunities for a potential new fusion program that is broader in R&D scope than ALPHA while pursuing the same vision as ALPHA: catalyze R&D pathways to lower the cost and accelerate the development time scale for commercially viable fusion energy. 

August 8, 2019

This event convened leading experts in electric motors, power electronics, thermal transport, advanced materials and manufacturing, and hybrid/electric aviation to identify innovative research paths forward for the development of disruptive technologies in electric propulsion that can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of commercial aviation while improving its economic viability and competitiveness.

July 30, 2019 to July 31, 2019

ARPA-E seeks information regarding the role of flexible carbon capture in terms of plant- and grid-level performance, economics and emissions. This workshop will focus on the impact of a growing share of renewable generation on conventional power plants equipped with carbon capture and storage (CCS) systems.
