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-0001396: Request for Information (RFI) on Ion Conductors for Electrochemical Cells

ARPA-E seeks input from researchers and technologists from a broad range of fields on how to achieve transformational gains in the ability to selectively conduct ions in electrochemical cells with significant impacts on ARPA-E mission areas. ARPA-E is particularly interested in ideas that will realize the full set of attributes required by a practical electrochemical device. In addition to ion (and optionally electron) selectivity, such attributes typically include suitable ionic and electronic conductivity, chemical and thermal stability, mechanical properties, cost-effective manufacturing and device integration, and others required by a particular application (e.g., density and thickness are of particular importance for mobile applications). ARPA-E seeks innovations that are deeply informed by the inextricable links among materials, fabrication, and the device or process context. The information you provide may be used by ARPA-E in support of program planning.

Comments in response to this RFI should be submitted in PDF format to the email address, ARPA-E-RFI-Ion-Conductors@hq.doe.gov by 5:00 PM Eastern Time on September 18, 2015. ARPA-E will not review or consider comments submitted by other means.
