The Summit brought together thought leaders from academia, business, and government to discuss cutting-edge energy issues and facilitate relationships to help move technologies into the marketplace.

-
The workshop focused on transformational personal thermal management technologies that have the potential to enable a wider temperature set point range for buildings, thereby reducing the energy consumed to heat or cool them, while maintaining or improving personal thermal comfort for building occupants.

-
The primary objective of the workshop was to identify innovative approaches in high-efficiency, low-cost drivers to enable new approaches in fusion energy.

-
The purpose of the workshop was for ARPA-E to gather input from a diverse range of experts as it considers the creation of a program around technology advances required to increase performance and reduce cost of electrochemical devices, such as fuel cells for power generation in both stationary distributed generation and transportation (fuel cell vehicles) environments.

-
The workshop sought to envision innovative research paths forward for the development of disruptive technologies that can significantly reduce the methane emissions associated with natural gas production while simultaneously ensuring that natural gas is available as a fuel solution that enhances energy security, energy efficiency, and environmental stewardship.

-
This workshop sought to identify transformational research and development opportunities for inexpensive full-spectrum solar energy collection with integrated energy storage.

The ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit brought together thought leaders from academia, business, and government to discuss cutting-edge energy issues and facilitate relationships to help move technologies into the marketplace.

This workshop convened the world’s leading experts in metals extraction and thermal engineering and identified innovative research paths forward for the development of disruptive technologies that can significantly reduce the energy consumption needed to extract light metals (aluminum, titanium, and magnesium) from ore while simultaneously enabling high grade heat recovery for power generation.

This workshop convened technical and market experts for the discussion and exploration of transformative technologies for scaling chemoautotrophic biofuel production. The purpose of the event was to convene current ARPA-E “Electrofuels” performers, as well as other technical and market experts, to report out and share information.

This workshop explored approaches that combined single carbon metabolism, industrial biotechnology, synthetic biology experts for the discussion and exploration of transformative biological technologies for methane-to-liquid fuels in the context of potential impact, technical parameters, and cost.
