DOE Requests Input on Future ARPA-E Funding Opportunities

The U.S. Department of Energy has issued a Request for Information requesting public input on potential programmatic areas and opportunities to overcome technological roadblocks to the development of transformational technologies relevant to the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) mission. Information collected will assist ARPA-E in developing new programs and funding opportunities.

ARPA-E was authorized by the America COMPETES Act (PL 110-69) and charged with the mission to fund projects that will develop transformational technologies that reduce America’s dependence on foreign energy imports; reduce U.S. energy related emissions, including greenhouse gases; improve energy efficiency across all sectors of the U.S. economy; and ensure that the U.S. maintains its leadership in developing and deploying advanced energy technologies.

Responses are due by September 25, 2009.
