Energy Innovation Showcase on the Hill: ARPA-E Technologies

Rayburn House Office Building
Foyer 45 Independence Avenue Southwest Washington, DC 20219
This event has passed.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and ClearPath for a reception featuring a showcase of ARPA-E funded technologies with House Science Energy Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Brandon Williams (R-NY). The technologies on display will cover a wide range of technical areas—nuclear fusion and fission, electric vehicle batteries, improved crops with greater capacity to sequester CO2, and more.

The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) plays a unique and critical role in maintaining America’s global leadership in energy technologies. ARPA-E supports high-risk, high-potential energy projects to transform how we generate, store, and use energy. This in turn strengthens our economy, bolsters national security, and improves the resiliency and reliability of our grid. To date, 204 ARPA-E projects have attracted more than $11.4 billion in private-sector follow-on funding to continue to advance their technology toward the market.

Remarks by:

Evelyn Wang | Director, ARPA-E, Department of Energy

Rep. Brandon Williams (R-NY) | Chair, House Science, Space, and Technology Energy Subcommittee
