ARPA-E Energy Research and Technologies

The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is an agency within the Department of Energy (DOE) that has funded the development and deployment of transformational and disruptive energy technologies and systems since 2009. ARPA-E issues periodic Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs), which are focused on overcoming specific technical barriers around a specific energy area. ARPA-E also issues periodic OPEN FOAs to identify high-potential projects that address the full range of energy-related technologies.

ARPA-E funds technology-focused, applied research and development aimed at creating real-world solutions to important problems in energy creation, distribution, and use. Applicants interested in receiving basic research financial assistance or funding to improve existing technology platforms would likely be better served by other Energy Department programs.

To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them.
