DE-FOA-0002459: OPEN 2021

This FOA marks the fifth OPEN solicitation in the history of ARPA-E. The previous OPEN solicitations were conducted at the inception of the agency in 2009 and again in 2012, 2015, and 2018. OPEN 2021 therefore continues the three-year periodic cycle for ARPA-E OPEN solicitations. An OPEN solicitation provides a vitally important mechanism for the support of innovative energy R&D that complements ARPA-E’s primary mechanism, which is through the solicitation of research projects in focused technology programs.


ARPA-E’s focused programs target specific areas of technology that the agency has identified, through extensive interaction with the appropriate external stakeholders, as having significant potential impact on one or more of the Mission Areas described in Section I.A of the FOA. Awards made in response to the solicitation for focused programs support the aggressive technical targets established in that solicitation. Taken in total, ARPA-E’s focused technology programs cover a significant portion of the spectrum of energy technologies and applications.


ARPA-E’s OPEN FOAs ensure that the agency does not miss opportunities to support innovative energy R&D that falls outside of the topics of the focused technology programs or that develop after focused solicitations have closed. OPEN FOAs provide the agency with a broad sampling of new and emerging opportunities across the complete spectrum of energy applications and allow the agency to “take the pulse” of the energy R&D community. OPEN FOAs have been and will continue to be the complement to the agency’s focused technology programs – a unique combination of approaches for supporting the most innovative and current energy technology R&D. For instance, one-third of the sixty examples of most successful ARPA-E projects featured in ARPA-E Impact volumes (https://arpa-e.energy.gov/about/our-impact) resulted from OPEN solicitations. Potential applicants to this FOA are strongly encouraged to examine the OPEN projects in these volumes and all of the projects supported in the previous four OPEN solicitations (https://arpa-e.energy.gov/technologies/open-programs) for examples of the creative and innovative R&D ARPA-E seeks in its OPEN solicitations.

DE-FOA-0002504: Reducing Emissions of Methane Every Day of the Year (REMEDY) Methane Emissions Abatement Program

REMEDY (Reducing Emissions of Methane Every day of the Year) is a 3-year, $35MM research program to reduce methane emissions from three sources in the oil, gas, and coal value chain. The goal is to reverse the rate of accumulation of methane in the atmosphere, decrease atmospheric methane concentration, and thus ameliorate climate change. The target sources are:

  • Exhaust from natural gas-fired lean-burn engines, used to drive compressors, generate electricity, and increasingly, repower ships; 
  • Flares required for safe operation of oil and gas facilities; and
  • Coal mine ventilation air methane (VAM) exhausted from operating underground mines.

These sources are responsible for at least 10% of US anthropogenic methane emissions.

The REMEDY program seeks highly replicable system-level technical solutions that achieve an overall methane conversion of 99.5%, reduce net greenhouse gas emissions > 87% on a life-cycle basis, have a levelized cost of carbon less than $40/ton CO2e, and address techno-economic issues related to commercialization. Systems must incorporate technologies that can operate at lean- and ultra-lean methane concentrations integrated with sensors and/or control algorithms to quantify emission reduction and ensure consistent operation. Stage 1 of the program will be used to screen concepts, and projects selected to continue in Stage 2 will confirm metrics in a limited field test or larger, extended-lab-scale test.

The REMEDY program addresses methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, and complements programs focused on CO2 reduction. REMEDY metrics will facilitate comparison of methane reduction processes with CO2 reduction processes.[1, 2]

REMEDY augments and extends but will not duplicate existing initiatives focused on methane reduction, such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Natural Gas Star program and Coalbed Methane Outreach Program (CMOP), the DOE Fossil Energy Flare Reduction program, and the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative. Recovery or conversion to high-value products is allowed, provided techno-economic and environmental metrics are met.

DE-FOA-0002530: Optimizing Nuclear Waste and Advanced Reactor Disposal Systems (ONWARDS)

The program goal of ONWARDS is to support the development of technologies that address significant challenges to closing the back-end of advanced reactor (AR) nuclear fuel cycles. Specifically, projects funded under the ONWARDS Program will develop and demonstrate sustainable technologies that will significantly improve the disposal impact of used nuclear fuel (UNF) and other waste streams stemming from the implementation of AR fuel cycles by developing innovative and cost-effective approaches in reprocessing, material accountancy, and waste forms. ONWARDS metrics include an order-of-magnitude reduction in AR waste volume generation or repository footprint compared to light-water nuclear reactors (LWR), better than 1% fissile-mass accountancy in reprocessing streams, development of high-performance AR waste forms for a variety of potential deep-geological repositories (DGR) and disposal concepts, and costs in the range of $1/megawatt-hour (MWh).

RFI-0000053: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for an upcoming FOA: New Program in Methane Abatement and Prevention (REMEDY)

The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA–E) is considering a program to prevent or abate anthropogenic methane emissions. Sources include coal mines, oil and gas wells, natural gas-fired engines, flares, uncontrolled emissions from landfills, and agriculture-related methane emissions from farming and ruminants. Successful teams would propose and validate integrated systems that will include a methane abatement/prevention technology, coupled with methane sensing/leakage detection system and associated controls. Abatement technologies of interest include, but are not limited to (1) biological remediation through methanotrophs and bio-filters, (2) chemistry based approaches including platinum group metals (PGM)/non-PGM based catalysis, plasma catalysis, electrochemical/electro catalysis, photo-catalysis, or a combination thereof, (3) innovative mechanical design techniques to prevent emissions, (4) novel material synthesis to improve the durability and reliability for sealing oil and gas wells. ARPA-E is seeking transformative and implementable solutions to abate/prevent emissions from such sources using the technologies mentioned above. ARPA-E anticipates that by the end of the project duration, the teams will be able to demonstrate a systems solution that meets the program objectives either in a field setting or an emulated field setting.

This potential program is focused on systems to prevent or abate methane emissions. Approaches not of interest include:

  • Work focused on basic research aimed at discovery and fundamental knowledge generation. 
  • Concepts that focus on methane detection and/or quantification without addressing prevention and/or abatement. 
  • Solutions that focus on incremental improvements in commercial technologies, incremental improvements in control systems for commercial technologies, or incremental improvements in operation or maintenance procedures. 
  • Large-scale demonstration projects of existing technologies.

ARPA–E held a workshop on these topics on October 20, 2020. Information from this workshop can be found at the event webpage (https://arpa-e.energy.gov/events/preventing-abating-anthropogenic-methane-emissions-workshop).

As a general matter, ARPA–E strongly encourages outstanding scientists and engineers from different organizations, scientific disciplines, and technology sectors to form new project teams. Multidisciplinary and cross-sector collaboration spanning organizational boundaries enables and accelerates the achievement of scientific and technological outcomes that were previously viewed as extremely difficult, if not impossible. Furthermore, ARPA-E strongly encourages involving industry partners to advise and collaborate with teams, with the ultimate goal of achieving successful industry adoption and integration of a new risk-driven operational and planning paradigm.

The Teaming Partner List is being compiled to facilitate the formation of new project teams. ARPA-E intends to make the Teaming Partner List available on ARPA–E eXCHANGE (https://ARPA–E-foa.energy.gov), ARPA–E’s online application portal, in October 2020. Once posted, the Teaming Partner List will be updated periodically, until the close of the Full Application period, to reflect new Teaming Partners who have provided their information.

RFI-0000054: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for an upcoming Funding Opportunity Announcement: OPEN 2021

The Advanced Research Projects Agency Energy (ARPA-E) intends to issue an OPEN Funding Opportunity Announcement (OPEN FOA) to support high-risk R&D leading to the development of potentially disruptive new technologies across the full spectrum of energy applications. ARPA-E seeks to support early-stage, but potentially transformational, research in all areas of energy R&D, especially technology or application spaces that have not been funded by ARPA-E in the past. Areas of research responsive to this intended FOA include but are not limited to electricity generation by both conventional and renewable means; electricity transmission, storage, and distribution; energy efficiency for buildings, manufacturing and commerce, and personal use; and all aspects of transportation, including the production and distribution of both renewable and non-renewable fuels, electrification, and energy efficiency in transportation, as well as any other area of energy research with potentially high impact. More information about the potential OPEN FOA can be found here: https://arpa-e.energy.gov/open-2021.

ARPA-E aims to bring together different technical communities to solve big energy challenges and fill the gaps or “whitespace” in a field. ARPA-E strongly encourage researchers from different disciplines and technology sectors to come together for interdisciplinary and cross-sector collaboration spanning organizational boundaries. This enables and accelerates the achievement of extremely hard-to-reach outcomes.

ARPA-E is compiling a Teaming Partner List for OPEN 2021 as an optional tool that potential applicants may choose to utilize to facilitate the formation of new project teams and identify potential collaborations. Teaming partners include organizations and individuals who can offer expertise, facilities, or other complementary resources toward a potential ARPA-E project. The teaming list identifies partners’ capabilities as well as their areas of interest, understanding that expertise and experience in one field can often be applied successfully to a new field.  This list is completely voluntary to participate in and utilize.  ARPA-E will not identify or facilitate connections through the teaming list and participation in the list has no bearing whatsoever on the evaluation of applications submitted to the OPEN 2021 FOA.

The Teaming Partner List is being compiled to facilitate the formation of new project teams.

RFI-0000055: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for an upcoming FOA: Optimizing Nuclear Waste and Advanced Reactor Disposal Systems (ONWARDS)

The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA–E) is considering a program to promote advanced nuclear energy by addressing significant challenges on the back end of advanced nuclear reactor (AR) fuel cycles. Specifically, the potential program would seek to develop and demonstrate technologies that will significantly improve the disposal impact of used nuclear fuel (UNF) and other waste streams stemming from the implementation of AR fuel cycles. This R&D would enable proliferation-resistant fuel cycles for ARs with an emphasis on minimizing the impact of fuel cycle wastes.

Overall goals for the potential program include:

  • an order of magnitude reduction in waste volumes or repository footprint with no weakening of safeguards standards
  • development of safeguards technologies for AR UNF processing for which there is no existing economically and/or technically viable solution for in-process fissile mass measurement of better than 1% accuracy
  • proliferation-resistant recycling of uranium (U) and transuranic (TRU) materials for new AR fuel stock that produce less than 0.1% actinides in waste stream
  • high durability waste forms for AR UNF (e.g., TRi-structural ISOtropic particle (TRISO) fuel, metallic fuel, molten salt fuel) across multiple disposal environments

Three technological areas have been identified as offering the most likely avenues to achieving substantial improvements in disposal impact for AR fuel cycles. A fourth category is included to capture breakthrough technologies that do not fit into the three listed technological areas, but that could nonetheless significantly improve the disposal impact of UNF. These four categories are:

  1. Process solutions: This technology area includes process improvements that significantly minimize waste volumes, improve intrinsic proliferation resistance of actinide separations, increase resource utilization efficiency, and bolster commercialization. 
  2. Safeguards solutions: This technology area includes improved sensor and data fusion technologies that will allow for accurate and timely accounting of nuclear materials.
  3. Waste form solutions: This technology area includes waste forms solution for AR fuel cycles with a particular emphasis on waste forms for waste streams from pyroprocessing of UNF or spent fuel from Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs).
  4. Other solutions: This category is provided for technologies which do not clearly fall into the above three categories. A compelling case must exist that the technology will deliver significant improvements to the fuel cycle disposal impact.

Since the exact nature of the back end of future AR fuel cycles is both undetermined and likely to evolve over time as ARs are deployed and technologies are updated, technologies that can span multiple AR fuel cycles and disposal concepts while achieving otherwise high performance would be of significant interest to this potential program. Further, while this potential program would require proposed technologies be specific to AR fuel cycle concepts, technologies with backwards compatibility with existing commercial light-water reactor (LWR) fuel cycle wastes would also be of significant interest.

ARPA–E held a workshop on these topics on December 2, 2020. Information from this workshop can be found at the event webpage (https://arpa-e.energy.gov/events/reducing-impact-used-nuclear-fuel-advanced-reactors-workshop).

As a general matter, ARPA–E strongly encourages outstanding scientists and engineers from different organizations, scientific disciplines, and technology sectors to form new project teams. Multidisciplinary and cross-sector collaboration spanning organizational boundaries enables and accelerates the achievement of scientific and technological outcomes that were previously viewed as extremely difficult, if not impossible. Furthermore, ARPA-E strongly encourages involving industry partners to advise and collaborate with these project teams, with the goal of achieving successful industry adoption and integration of the innovative technologies these projects teams develop.

A Teaming Partner List is being compiled to facilitate the formation of new project teams. ARPA-E intends to make the Teaming Partner List available on ARPA–E eXCHANGE (https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov), ARPA–E’s online application portal, in April 2021. Once posted, the Teaming Partner List will be updated periodically, until the close of the Full Application period, to reflect new Teaming Partners who have provided their information.

RFI-0000056: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for an existing Topic: Solicitation on Topics Informing New Program Areas: SF6-Free Routes for Electrical Equipment

The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA–E) has issued a new Topic for the FOAs “Solicitation on Topics Informing New Program Areas” (DE-FOA-0001953) and “Solicitation on Topics Informing New Program Areas SBIR/STTR” (DE-FOA-0001954) to solicit applications for financial assistance in support of technology development aimed at reducing SF6 emissions from the electric transmission and distribution sector.

As described in more detail below, the purpose of this announcement is to facilitate collaborations among performing teams, including the testing and resource support teams, to respond to the Topic. Please see the Topic under each FOA noted above for specific Program goals, technical metrics, selection criteria and Topic terms. For the purposes of the Teaming Partner List, the following summarizes the Topic:

Today, the electric grid in the United States is responsible for distributing over 4 trillion kWh per year of electricity from generators to consumers. It forms an integrated network that has become an indispensable asset to the nation’s economy, infrastructure, and security. The physical infrastructure of this network depends on a combination of specialized equipment including transformers, switchgear, circuit breakers, converters, switches, circuit switches, and coupling capacitor potential devices. A critical component for the safety and reliability of the electric grid is a man-made gas, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). In 1937, GE introduced SF6 as an insulation gas in the electric industry; since then, SF6 has become ubiquitous in medium-voltage (MV) and high-voltage (HV) equipment. Among its many key attributes are its intrinsic non-toxic, non-corrosive, and non-flammable nature, in addition to its superior stability over a wide operating window, good thermal conductivity, high dielectric strength, and excellent arc quenching capabilities. These properties make it particularly amenable as an insulating and arc-quenching gas in electrical equipment.1 As a result, over 90% of gas-insulated switchgear globally uses SF6 as the insulating gas.2 However, SF6 emissions from the electric transmission and distribution sector pose a significant climate risk as a potent and long-lived greenhouse gas (GHG). One ton of SF6 emitted to the atmosphere has an equivalent 100-year global warming potential (GWP) of 22,800-26,700 tons of carbon dioxide and has an estimated atmospheric lifetime of 3,200 years.3 As the U.S. and individual states set increasingly ambitious emissions targets, emissions of all GHGs, particularly from the electric grid, will be scrutinized. Furthermore, regulations being considered in places like California and the EU aim to completely phase out SF6 from electrical equipment, necessarily setting a timeline to develop alternative solutions to SF6-insulated equipment. Alternative solutions developed today could define the market for decades to come, both in the US and globally.


To accomplish this goal, ARPA-E is looking for diverse interdisciplinary teams to foster research and development of alternative technologies which substitute SF6 in gas-insulated equipment (GIE) with alternative gases or gas mixtures, vacuum-based technologies, and/or address SF6 emissions across the life cycle of the equipment. Within the scope of this program and as further described in the FOA documents, ARPA-E expects to evaluate the viability and risks associated with alternative gas solutions, identify potential new alternative gases or gas mixtures that meet or exceed the performance of SF6 at a GWP approximately equal to CO2, accelerate development and testing of vacuum-dry air or vacuum-solid dielectric technologies for high voltage (at or above 245 kV) applications, design sensors that enable earlier leak detection, and create new pathways for the permanent fixation or destruction of SF6 for end-of-life disposal.

As a general matter, ARPA–E strongly encourages different organizations with outstanding scientists and engineers, and across different scientific disciplines and technology sectors to participate in this Program. Interdisciplinary and cross-sector collaboration spanning organizational boundaries enables and accelerates the achievement of scientific and technological outcomes that were previously viewed as extremely difficult, if not impossible.The Teaming Partner List is being compiled to facilitate the formation of new project teams.
