They say everything is big in Texas, and at this year’s EarthX event, it certainly felt that way. ARPA-E joined a trio of its awardees for this year’s conference, a massive expo in Dallas focused on energy, the environment, and new technology to solve some of our most pressing problems. ARPA-E’s mission has innovation at its core, so EarthX was a prime opportunity to showcase some of the agency’s most exciting energy projects while helping the public better understand ARPA-E’s mission and the role of energy in Americans’ everyday lives.

U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz announced today at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars that the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is issuing its third open funding opportunity announcement, OPEN 2015, for up to $125 million. OPEN 2015 will support energy research and development projects from America’s top innovators for disruptive new technologies in transportation and stationary applications.

Press Releases
U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz today announced $125 million across 41 cutting-edge energy technologies awarded by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). These new projects are funded under ARPA-E’s OPEN 2015 program and come in advance of the COP21 U.N. Climate Negotiations in Paris next week. The announcement was made at D.C. technology incubator 1776 at an event that focused on leveraging America’s top innovators to find technological solutions to combat climate change, enhance security and solve pressing energy challenges around the globe.
