October is National Energy Action Month, a time for us to focus on energy’s critical importance to our national security, economic prosperity, and environmental well-being. And while this month is special, at ARPA-E, we’re working year-round to accelerate innovations that will create a secure, affordable and sustainable American energy future.
WASHINGTON, DC -- The Department of Energy today announced that 19 transformative new projects will receive a total of $43 million in funding from the Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to leverage the nation’s brightest scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs to develop breakthrough energy storage technologies and support promising small businesses.
WASHINGTON, DC -- The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) has issued approximately $43 million for two new programs to develop next-generation energy storage technologies that could significantly improve U.S. energy security and efficiency.
Last Thursday’s Information Technology and Innovation Foundation event, the “New Age of Discovery: Government’s Role in Transformative Innovation,” ended with a surprise when Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) Principal Deputy Director Eric Toone announced funding for 19 new projects in two new program areas.
We recently sat down with Dr. Eric Shrader, the principal investigator of PARC’s battery co-extrusion project, to talk innovation, reforming the electric vehicle (EV) industry, and changing the way we think about batteries.
