FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

DE-FOA-0000672: METHANE OPPORTUNITIES FOR VEHICULAR ENERGY (MOVE)

This program seeks to fund the development of transformational technologies that reduce the barriers to mass adoption of natural gas use in vehicles. Of particular interest are technologies that enable at-home refueling and low-cost, high energy density on-board storage for natural gas vehicles.

DE-FOA-0000673: REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) FOR ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES FOR ROBUST CONTROL OF ENERGY STORAGE

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI)  is to seek input from researchers and technologists of various backgrounds and representing a broad range of fields and disciplines, with the goal of evaluating novel approaches to providing diagnostic, prognostic, and control capabilities to significantly increase performance and accelerate adoption of energy storage systems. The information you provide may be used by ARPA-E in support of program planning.

THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ONLY.  THIS NOTICE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA). NO FOA EXISTS AT THIS TIME.

DE-FOA-0000671: REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) ON FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA) DE-FOA-0000671 FOR CHEMO/ELECTRO-AUTOTROPHIC SYNTHESIS OF LIQUID FUELS AT SCALE

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is solely to solicit input for ARPA-E consideration to inform the possible development of future chemo/electro-autotrophic fuel production programs.  Information obtained may be used by ARPA-E on a non-attribution basis.  This RFI provides biofuel and bioproducts stakeholders with an opportunity to contribute views and opinions regarding the requirements to transition bench-scale (e.g. microgram–milligram L-1h-1 production rates) chemo/electro-autotrophic fuel production technologies to efficient and cost competitive integrated chemo/electro-autotrophic fuel production platforms (e.g. multi-gram L-1h-1 production rates at scale).  Views are sought regarding various microbial systems, energy assimilation strategies, bioreactor development, scaling parameters, fuel/fuel precursor products, and cost of fuel/fuel precursor products, overall cost of program development and path to market adoption.

The information you provide may be used by ARPA-E in support of program planning. THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ONLY.  THIS NOTICE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (FOA).  NO FOA EXISTS AT THIS TIME.

DE-FOA-0000670: OPEN FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT (OPEN FOA)

To address the challenges imposed by the rapidly evolving global energy market, ARPA-E seeks to support transformational research in all areas of energy R&D, including resource identification, extraction, transportation and use, and energy generation, storage, transmission and use in both the transportation and stationary power sectors.  Areas of research responsive to this FOA include (but are not limited to) electricity generation by both renewable and non-renewable means, electricity transmission, storage, and distribution; energy efficiency for buildings, manufacturing and commerce, and personal use; and all aspects of transportation, including the production and distribution of both renewable and non-renewable fuels, electrification, and energy efficiency in transportation.

The result of a successful ARPA-E project will be such that at the end of the project the transformational technology will be sufficiently advanced and well defined in terms of performance and risk to promote next-stage development or transfer of the project to next-stage developers.  Projects under this FOA must be aimed at more than progress toward identified project goals; the project must be aimed at actual delivery of these project goals.  The R&D effort on later-stage technology development projects must carry the risk reduction process for the technology to the point at which entrepreneurial decisions can be made with confidence.
