- Created on Thursday, 17 November 2011
DOE's Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy (ARPA-E) will hold its third annual Energy Innovation Summit at the Gaylord Convention Center near Washington, D.C. The Summit will unite key players from all sectors of the nation’s energy innovation community to share ideas for developing and deploying the next generation of clean energy technologies.
The event is co-hosted by ARPA-E and Clean Technology and Sustainable Industries Organization (CTSI). Bill Gates and Energy Secretary Steven Chu are among the distinguished keynote speakers.
The Summit will feature a technology showcase with over 150 exhibits from DOE and ARPA-E-funded projects and applicants in areas such as energy storage technologies for electrical grids, power electronics, batteries for electric vehicles, energy-efficient building technologies, advanced carbon capture, and electrofuels.
The showcase will also feature new ARPA-E programs that aim to advance alternatives to rare earth materials, plant engineering for fuel applications, advanced thermal storage, network integration architecture for the electrical grid, and power electronics for solar photovoltaic applications.
