USA: Funding Available for Early-Stage Energy R&D

Department of Energy Announces $100 Million Open Solicitation for Transformative Energy Projects (News Release)

ARPA-E Issues OPEN Funding Opportunity Announcement to Support Early-Stage Energy R&D

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced up to $100 million in funding for new projects as part of the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy’s (ARPA‑E) latest OPEN funding opportunity. OPEN will support America’s top innovators through dozens of early-stage research and development projects as they build technologies to transform the nation’s energy system.

Open solicitations enable ARPA-E to support transformational projects outside the scope of existing ARPA-E focused programs. The projects selected under OPEN in 2018 will pursue novel approaches to energy innovation across the full spectrum of energy applications. The agency collaborates across the Department’s extensive research enterprise, providing support that complements existing DOE-wide initiatives. The deadline to submit a concept paper is February 12, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. E.T.
