The Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) is hosting a workshop to engage technical experts from the power electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, and other related communities to discuss the development and demonstration of next-generation ultra-fast semiconductor devices for enhanced resiliency and reliability of power electronics systems ranging from kilowatts to gigawatts of power.

-
The Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) hosted a workshop to support the development of a new ARPA-E program that will transform the way underground distribution power lines are built and maintained over the current state-of-the-art for cost effectiveness and high reliability. Accomplishing the objective will be done by encouraging team building and providing a forum for those involved in power grid civil construction and maintenance, regulators, and peers to exchange experiences, best practices, ideas, and metrics.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) within the U.S. Department of Energy hosted a workshop to convene technical experts and thought leaders to explore opportunities and challenges related to energy efficient carbon removal via advanced terrestrial ecosystems and bioeconomy supply chains. The workshop included technical and market focused presentations, panel discussions, and facilitated breakout groups, with the overarching goal of identifying disruptive R&D pathways related to low-energy, low-cost, and large-scale technologies and strategies for terrestrial carbon dioxide removal, management, and sequestration, or “carbon farming.”

-
ARPA-E is exploring a potential program to develop scalable and economic technologies for the measurement, reporting and verification of ocean carbon dioxide removal (CDR). This workshop convened experts in ocean sensing, sensor platforms, modeling and carbon economics to identify innovative research paths for the development of disruptive technologies that will provide a quantitative basis for ocean CDR in carbon markets.

-
The virtual ARPA-E Reactive Carbon Capture Workshop was hosted by Program Directors Dr. Jack Lewnard and Dr. David Tew on Wednesday & Thursday, February 2 & 3, 2022.  The workshop brought together thought leaders with backgrounds in fuel synthesis, carbon capture, and process engineering (among others) to identify opportunities and potentially transformational technology approaches for inexpensive conversion of diffuse or point-source CO2 to high-value chemical intermediates and/or fuel products.

-
The workshop convened 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.
