The workshop will convene leading experts in the field of datacenter thermal management with the objective to identify innovative research paths forward for the development of disruptive technologies that enable transformational high efficiency cooling methods for new and existing datacenters.

-
The primary objective of this workshop was to solicit input from a cross-section of the battery research community and industry to inform development of a potential funding opportunity announcement (FOA) on this topic. The potential program would aim to achieve a minimum performance level, AFTER 500 capacity turnovers, equivalent to 450 Wh/kg and 80% charging in 15 minutes or less.

-
The objective of this workshop was to explore compelling R&D opportunities in Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) in support of developing metrics for a potential ARPA-E R&D program in LENR.

-
The objective of this workshop is to solicit stakeholder feedback and ideas regarding the scope of a potential disruptive program focused on technologies to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions from the production of iron and steel.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) organized a virtual workshop from noon to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 27, and Wednesday, July 28. The objective of this workshop was to solicit stakeholder feedback and ideas regarding the scope of a potential, new “Converting UNF Radioisotope Inventories into Energy” (CURIE) program focused on economically and securely recycling the nation’s existing commercial used nuclear fuel.

-
The primary purpose of this workshop was to discuss research opportunities targeting enhanced mineralization of atmospheric carbon as a tool for both sequestration and the liberation of energy relevant elements. The discussions in this workshop could help inform a potential future program in this area.

-
The purpose of this workshop was for ARPA-E to solicit input from a cross-section of the research community and industry in advance of a potential funding opportunity in this area. We brought together experts in embodied carbon, building design, construction materials, and emerging low carbon materials. Given the complexity and interdisciplinary nature of this space, we sought insights as to which research areas have the greatest potential to significantly store carbon, while also being viable for implementation as construction materials.

-
The purpose of this workshop was for the scientific, engineering, and industry communities to provide input to ARPA-E in advance of a potential funding opportunity in this area. For this workshop, we envisioned bringing together a community of experts in advanced nuclear fuel cycles, UNF recycling and reprocessing, nuclear safeguards and non-proliferation, repositories, and waste forms.  We also reached out to experts in adjacent fields of expertise such as chemical and electrochemical processing, advanced materials, industrial engineering, etc.

The large-scale cultivation of macroalgae (also known as seaweed) is increasingly recognized as a potential solution for removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, the economic bioextraction of nitrogen and phosphorus from eutrophic systems, and a source of carbon-neutral biomass for biofuels and bioproducts.  ARPA-E views macroalgae as a robust carbon-negative and resource-efficient feedstock for biofuels and bioproducts that does not compete with existing agricultural land.  ARPA-E’s MARINER program targets the development and deployment of new technologies for the economically viab

Update: ARPA-E Program Director Dr. Jack Lewnard held a webinar on reducing methane emissions on November 10, 2020. Presentation slides from the webinar are available here. A video recording of the presentation can be seen below:
