“Funding Opportunities at ARPA-E”
Wednesday, August 17, 2011 , 4:00-5:00 pm ET


Dr. Mark Johnson
Program Lead
Grid-Scale Rampable Intermittent Dispatchable Storage (GRIDS)

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:Recognizing the need to reevaluate the way the United States spurs innovation, the National Academies released a 2006 report, “Rising Above the Gathering Storm,” that included the recommendation to establish an Advanced Research Projects Agency—Energy (ARPA-E) within the Department of Energy (DOE). ARPA-E seeks to support energy technology conferences, workshops, and other events that will involve the exchange or dissemination of technical data and information, the transfer of advanced energy technologies to the private sector, the education of targeted audiences about energy technologies and their potential impact(s), the promotion of investment or business opportunities for advanced energy technologies, and the formation of new partnerships, collaborations, and networks among energy researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs, and investors.  ARPA-E also seeks to support student participation in energy conferences and other events in order to educate the next generation of energy researchers and technologists, attract researchers and technologists to energy-related fields and disciplines, and connect students with entities involved in the development and deployment of advanced energy technologies.
