The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) will host its ninth annual Energy Innovation Summit from March 13-15, 2018 in National Harbor, MD. The Summit draws thousands of participants from across the United States and internationally to convene a forum on the future of energy innovation. The Summit encourages leaders from industry, government, and academia to build partnerships that shape the direction of public-private cooperation in energy technology.
The Summit will include the Technology Showcase which features more than 275 innovative technologies from across all energy sectors, including prototypes and commercial-ready products—many on public display for the first time. In addition, it will also feature panel discussions and mainstage addresses from leading experts on a range of technology issues affecting energy innovation.
AMO Director Rob Ivester will also be speaking on a panel on Wednesday, March 14, entitled, “From Benchtop to Marketplace: Resources for Prototypes, Demos and Large-Scale Manufacturing.” The panel will examine a number of innovative organizations and initiatives that are looking to close the gap between hardware-based energy technology development and the required skills and resources needed, and it will provide technologists with the resources and connections to prototype, demonstrate, and scale-up their technologies.
