Each year the Technology Showcase at the ARPA-E Innovation Summit presents cutting-edge energy technologies, and this year was no different. From a heating and cooling system that works on thermal energy powered by natural gas to the first ever 3D-printed car, breakthrough technologies were on display around every corner. Along with these next-generation technologies, experts were on hand to answer questions about how things work and when these new products and systems will be available to the public.

Check out the photo gallery above to learn about some of the amazing technological advances on display at the showcase.
