Energy Department’s ARPA-E Announces Multimillion-Dollar Funding for Clean Energy Projects
The Department of Energy has announced a potential $10 million funding opportunity for organizations looking to develop innovative clean energy solutions.
The Spurring Projects to Advance energy Research and Knowledge Swiftly funding round, managed by the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, will support concepts designed to reduce emissions, increase energy independence, enhance energy security and improve the economy, ARPA-E said Tuesday.
The program has seven main categories, namely, grid; transportation; buildings and construction; electricity generation and storage; carbon capture, sequestration and utilization; industrial efficiency and decarbonization; and energy technologies.
Projects funded by the SPARKS program must be impactful and must be conducted in 18 months or less.
The SPARKS program is one of several funding rounds the Energy Department announced in 2023, two of which were for advanced manufacturing and energy-related enhancements.
In late October, the department awarded a team comprising Voxeljet and General Electric a $14.9 million grant to develop and promote a 3D printer used by the wind and hydroelectric sectors. Earlier in the month, the DOE released $264 million in grants to 29 projects under the Energy Earthshots initiative.
