Secretary Granholm Invites Energy Innovators to ARPA-E Summit

2023 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit in National Harbor in March

WASHINGTON – The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) will host its thirteenth annual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit from March 22-24, 2023, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

The Summit brings together more than 2,000 experts from government, academia, and business to advance cutting-edge energy technologies.

“ARPA-E is our moonshot energy factory. They’re involved in mind-blowing projects, from developing new battery chemistries, to creating a type of wood that's even stronger than steel, to making fuel from seaweed,” said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm in a new video promoting the Summit. “To anyone ready to help build our clean energy future—I hope you’ll join me at this year’s ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit.”

The Summit offers a unique program aimed at moving transformational energy technologies out of the lab and into the market. The three-day program features inspiring keynotes, breakout panels, and the popular Technology Showcase. This year, the Technology Showcase will include over 400 exhibitors, making it the largest the Summit has ever hosted.

General Session speakers will include Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, former Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, ARPA-E Director Evelyn Wang, and Dr. Arun Majumdar, the inaugural Dean of Stanford University’s Doerr School of Sustainability.

Additional speakers will be announced over the coming weeks.
