On December 13, 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced the availability of up to $100 million in funding to support innovators through early-stage research and development (R&D) projects focused on technologies to transform the nation’s energy system.  The funding will be provided through the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) OPEN funding opportunity.  OPEN funding opportunity announcements (FOA), which are typically issued on a triennial basis, allow ARPA-E to support projects outside the scope of existing ARPA-E focused programs.  The FOA is open to a broad variety of projects, including renewable electricity generation and the production and distribution of renewable fuels.
 
Concept papers in response to the FOA are due by 5:00 p.m. (EST) February 12, 2018.  More information on the FOA is available on the ARPA-E website.
