WASHINGTON – The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) will host its 10th Energy Innovation Summit from July 8-10, 2019, at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado.

This year’s event recognizes 10 years of ARPA-E making ideas into reality and sets the stage for the next decade of energy innovation.
“This year’s program promises three exciting days of energy innovation, featuring high-level speakers, panel discussions, and ARPA-E’s popular tech showcase,” said Energy Secretary Rick Perry. “Don’t miss when ARPA-E ‘goes west’ to Denver to recognize 10 years of making ideas into reality.”
The 2019 ARPA-E Summit is in Colorado to capitalize on the thriving community of technology entrepreneurs and investors in Western states. The main stage will feature Dean Kamen, president of DEKA Research & Development Corporation and C-suite speakers from companies including Xcel Energy, Siemens, BASF Corporation, Sila Nanotechnologies, Sunfolding and NuScale Power. The Technology Showcase – a key attraction at the Summit – will include nearly 300 energy technologies from ARPA-E performers and other innovators from across the nation.
