Cutting-edge research into hybrid systems that can allow for greater use of the sun’s energy – in some cases, even when the sun isn’t shining – get ARPA-E love.
Significant breakthroughs in battery chemistry and vehicle architecture are crucial for EVs to compete with internal combustion vehicles.
An innovative U.S. R&D program takes on electric-car range anxiety with $36 million for projects that intend to “re-envision the total EV battery system.”
House Republicans look to essentially kill a clean-energy R&D program that even candidate Mitt Romney said was a good investment.
The DOE is allocating $40 million to green-tech programs through its ARPA-E arm. Both programs, which are involved in transportation, will receive $20 million each.
U.S. officials say the threatened “sequestration” budget cuts would hit solar power, electric vehicle and advanced research efforts.
Once again partners with ARPA-E for their upcoming Energy Innovation Summit, we bring you this preview of some of the things you can expect later this month.
MIT researchers say a genetically modified organism could turn carbon dioxide or waste products into isobutanol, a gasoline-compatible transportation fuel.
ARPA-E-backed researchers at USC borrow from the Pepto-Bismol ingredient list to turn iron-air batteries into a promising way to do large-scale energy storage.
In California, government scientists and a Palo Alto startup called AutoGrid Systems are coding a path toward improved energy delivery in real time.
