ARPA-E Announces Agreement with California Energy Commission to Coordinate Advancement on New Energy Technologies
The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy has partnered with the California Energy Commission, a renewable energy service provider that offers solar power purchase agreements to non-profit organizations with zero upfront costs, to fast track the development of clean energy technologies with potential long-term social and economic benefits for California and the United States. A memorandum of understanding was signed to accelerate a common goal for transformational energy innovations, ARPA-E said.
Under the agreement, CEC and ARPA-E agreed to share publicly-available knowledge and the results of technologies they funded, discuss funding opportunities for energy research and promote the development and deployment of ARPA-E projects at CEC-associated sites or facilities. The parties also agreed to pursue activities that will advance technologies that reduce energy costs, enhance grid reliability and resiliency and mitigate environmental impacts. The MOU, which will be effective until Dec. 31, 2028, does not involve the exchange of funds between the parties.
