WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy today announced that its Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) will host its 12th annual Energy Innovation Summit May 23–25, 2022, in Aurora, Colorado. The ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit is the premier event for energy innovators, investors, and influencers, and gathers more than 2,000 experts each year from government, academia, and business to discuss advancements in cutting-edge energy technologies. 

“ARPA-E is known for its commanding role as a catalyst of clean energy technology breakthroughs — and the upcoming summit will highlight its leadership as it tackles current energy challenges and advances our nation’s clean energy technology,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “We look forward to welcoming industry leaders and experts for thoughtful discussions about achieving our clean energy goals by getting next generation technology to the marketplace, bolstering domestic manufacturing and creating good-paying jobs.” 

This year’s summit will offer a unique program aimed at moving transformational energy technologies out of the lab and into the marketplace.
