Open solicitations also issued in 2009 and 2012 - serve as an open call to scientists and engineers for transformational technologies across the entire scope of ARPA-E
s energy mission.
Because our goal is to enable the project teams to manage their own paths to commercialization, our tech-to-market efforts must extend beyond the ARPA-E
program and tech-to-market team.
's goal is to develop a set of low-cost technologies in fusion drivers and plasma formation that will achieve high experimental shot rates for rapid learning, and create new low-cost paths to fusion power beyond the ARPA-E
puts cutting-edge clean-tech on the map.
Overall, the ARPA-E
program has funded 180 separate projects with $521.
Majumdar, an accomplished scientist and engineer who's been running ARPA-E
for just eight months, says it could take a decade or more for the agency to come up with the "equivalent of the Internet.
On January 27, the House Science and Technology Committee held a hearing to examine the progress of ARPA-E
, which has been in existence for less than a year.
In addition to funding its first projects, ARPA-E
has gained its first director.
Metabolix brings a unique set of capabilities and experience as well as a proven track record of success in plant science to our ARPA-E
project," said Dr.
, we invest in technology options in order to create a more sustainable American energy future, said ARPA-E
For Director of ARPA-E
, he has picked Ellen Williams, who is currently Chief Scientist at BP oil company.
program was created, in 2009, to identify clean-energy research projects deemed too radical or too preliminary to attract private financing.
