ARPA-E Requests Input on Future Funding Opportunities
Washington, DC, August 31, 2009 - The Advanced Research Projects Agency
- Energy (ARPA-E) announced today a formal Request for Information (RFI)
for future funding opportunities
. The RFI requests public input on
potential ARPA-E programmatic areas and opportunities to overcome
technological roadblocks to the development of transformational
relevant to the ARPA-E mission. The information collected
through this process will assist ARPA-E in developing new programs and
funding opportunities.

ARPA-E's first Funding Opportunity Announcement, released on April 27,
2009, and solicited a broad range of ideas for transformational energy
technology development. With this RFI, ARPA-E is now reaching out to
the public for input on specific programmatic energy technology areas
that may be well-suited to provide transformational impacts on ARPA-E's
mission areas of reducing foreign energy imports; decreasing energy
related emissions, including those of greenhouse gases; increasing
energy efficiency across the U.S. economy, and ensuring that the U.S.
maintains a technological lead in developing and deploying advanced
energy technologies

Responses to the RFI are due to ARPA-E by September 25, 2009. To review
