ARPA-E requests input on future funding opportunities

The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) announced a formal Request for Information (RFI) for future funding opportunities. The RFI requests public input on potential ARPA-E programmatic areas and opportunities to overcome technological roadblocks to the development of transformational technologies relevant to the ARPA-E mission. The information collected through this process will assist ARPA-E in developing new programs and funding opportunities.

ARPA-E’s first Funding Opportunity Announcement, released on April 27, 2009, and solicited a broad range of ideas for transformational energy technology development. With this RFI, ARPA-E is now reaching out to the public for input on specific programmatic energy technology areas that may be well-suited to provide transformational impacts on ARPA-E’s mission areas of reducing foreign energy imports; decreasing energy related emissions, including those of greenhouse gases; increasing energy efficiency across the U.S. economy, and ensuring that the U.S. maintains a technological lead in developing and deploying advanced energy technologies.

Responses to the RFI are due to ARPA-E by September 25, 2009. To review the RFI, please visit
