Questions Regarding Funding Opportunity Announcements

Please contact the ARPA-E-CO@hq.doe.gov email address for questions regarding Funding Opportunity Announcements. Upon the issuance of a FOA, only the Contracting Officer may communicate with Applicants. ARPA-E personnel and our support contractors are prohibited from communicating (in writing or otherwise) with Applicants regarding the FOA. This “quiet period” remains in effect until ARPA-E’s public announcement of its project selections.

ARPA-E will not pre-assess an Applicant’s proposal. Prospective Applicants must review the technical requirements of the FOA and independently determine whether their proposed concept warrants a submission.

DE-FOA-0000000: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for Advanced Management and Protection of Energy-storage Devices (AMPED)

On or about April 2, 2012, the Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (“ARPA-E”) intends to issue a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Advanced Management and Protection of Energy-storage Devices” (AMPED), DE-FOA-0000675. The objective of the AMPED FOA will be to identify high-impact concepts for providing diagnostic, prognostic, and control capabilities to significantly increase performance and accelerate adoption of energy storage systems. The AMPED FOA will incorporate information received in response to a prior Request for Information entitled “Advanced Technologies for Robust Control of Energy Storage” that was issued on February 17, 2012 (https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov/Default.aspx?Archive=1).

ARPA-E strongly encourages outstanding scientists and engineers from different organizations, scientific disciplines, and technology sectors to form new project teams. Interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral collaboration spanning organizational boundaries enables and accelerates the achievement of scientific and technological outcomes that were previously viewed as extremely difficult, if not impossible.

ARPA-E is issuing this Announcement to facilitate the formation of new project teams. Specifically, ARPA-E intends to publish a list of potential teaming partners for the AMPED FOA on ARPA-E eXCHANGE (https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov), ARPA-E’s online application portal, on or about April 2, 2012.

Any organization that would like to be included in this list should send the following information to ARPA-E-CO@hq.doe.gov: Organization Name, Contact Name, Contact Address, Contact Email, Contact Phone, Organization Type, Focus Area, and Brief Description of Capabilities. Please insert “AMPED Teaming Partner” in the subject line of your email. ARPA-E is particularly interested in receiving responses from organizations with expertise in the following Focus Areas: battery manufacturing, electric vehicles, grid-scale energy storage, electric vehicle charging, battery safety, sensors, controls, and power electronics.

By submitting a response to this Announcement, you consent to the publication of the above-referenced information. The Federal Government will not pay for the provision of any information, nor will it compensate any respondents for the development of such information. Responses submitted to other email addresses or by other means will not be reviewed or considered.

This Announcement does not constitute a FOA. No FOA exists at this time. Applicants must refer to the final FOA issued in April 2012 for instructions on submitting an application and for the terms and conditions of funding. ARPA-E will not review or consider noncompliant and/or nonresponsive applications.
