Department of Energy Announces $18 Million for Transformative Energy Technologies

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – (RealEstateRama) — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) today announced its latest funding opportunity designed to support early stage, transformative energy technologies. The “Solicitation on Topics Informing New Program Areas” funding opportunity enables ARPA-E to investigate potential new program areas while highlighting energy challenges of critical interest to American competitiveness and security.

“By design, ARPA-E is an agency that adapts quickly to the changing energy landscape, and this new program will allow us to better capitalize on emerging energy trends,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry. “This program will enable the Department to target technologies at the project level, driving innovation and creating new opportunities.”

This Funding Opportunity will remain open for an extended period, and new topics will be released periodically to target emerging technologies and potential new program areas. This first round calls for innovative technologies supporting next generation nuclear energy, high temperature sensors for downhole geothermal exploration, and ultra-durable, lower-energy concrete for infrastructure. ARPA-E will award up to $18 million to project teams spread across standard and small business (SBIR/STTR) solicitations.

DOE believes these funded projects could encourage the development of cross-disciplinary communities around these topic areas, potentially leading to the creation of new projects and programs.
