MONITOR Program Field Test Site Funding Opportunity

February 26, 2016

On December 16, 2014, ARPA-E announced project selections for the MONITOR (Methane Observation Networks with Innovative Technology to Obtain Reductions) program, which seeks to develop low-cost, high sensitivity systems that detect, quantify, and locate emissions associated with the production and transportation of natural gas.

ARPA-E is today announcing approximately $3 to $5 millionĀ for the MONITOR Field Test Site program which will support the development of a simulated, but realistic natural gas test site for use by MONITOR Awardees. The test site will enable the evaluation of MONITOR methane sensors and detection systems under realistic scenarios.
