Energy Department to Fund Energy R&D Efforts by Young Industry Members
The Department of Energy has announced that it will invest $10 million in a program to support emerging engineers, entrepreneurs and researchers to develop and commercialize new technologies. Inspiring Generations of New Innovators to Impact Technologies in Energy 2024 will also host gatherings and provide mentorship opportunities, the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy said Thursday.
IGNIITE 2024 is part of ongoing efforts by the Biden-Harris administration to enhance the United States’ competitiveness and clean energy leadership. ARPA-E is expected to lead the program.
Evelyn Wang, the agency’s director, said her organization seeks to back the development of innovative energy solutions.
To apply, prospects are asked to propose research and development efforts that conform to ARPA-E goals and explain how they could transform energy generation, transport and use.
Chosen participants are expected to move on to a summer program in Washington, D.C., that includes an annual review meeting, training and engagement with stakeholders and ARPA-E officials.
