The Energy Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) today announced $60 million in funding for 22 innovative new projects aimed at detecting and measuring methane emissions and developing localized thermal management systems that reduce the energy needed to heat and cool buildings.
Dr. Ellen Williams was confirmed by the United States Senate on Monday, December 8, 2014 as the Director of the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E).
The U.S. Department of Energy today announced that Secretary Ernest Moniz will serve as a keynote speaker for the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy’s (ARPA-E) Energy Innovation Summit, which will be held from Feb. 9-11, 2015 in National Harbor, Md.
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) is announcing two new programs to provide technology options for a more secure and sustainable American energy future.
Today at New York Energy Week, ARPA-E Acting Director Dr. Cheryl Martin announced $33 million in funding for 13 new projects aimed at developing transformational fuel cell technologies for low-cost distributed power generation. The projects, which are funded through ARPA-E’s new Reliable Electricity Based on ELectrochemical Systems (REBELS) program, are focused on improving grid stability, balancing intermittent renewable technologies, and reducing CO2 emissions using electrochemical distributed power generation systems.
Two new programs aim to detect and measure methane emissions and develop energy efficient heating and cooling systems.
The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) today announced that the Agency’s innovative projects are making great strides towards transforming the way Americans use and produce energy.
Austin, TX – At the University of Texas-Austin today, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz will announce $30 million in funding to 13 ARPA-E projects to develop transformational hybrid solar energy technologies that deliver cost-effective power when the sun is not shining. These projects will help advance solar energy beyond current photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies to drive lower-cost, reliable solar energy deployment.
Today, the Department of Energy announced up to $30 million in Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) funding for a new program focused on the development of transformational electrochemical technologies to enable low-cost distributed power generation.
ARPA-E Deputy Director Cheryl Martin today announced $27 million in funding from the Energy Department’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) for 14 projects aimed at developing next-generation power conversion devices that could dramatically transform how power is controlled and converted throughout the grid. The projects selected today under ARPA-E’s SWITCHES program, short for “Strategies for Wide-Bandgap, Inexpensive Transistors for Controlling High-Efficiency Systems,” aim to find innovative ways to lower the cost and improve the efficiency of power electronics.
