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.

RFI-0000000: ANNOUNCEMENT OF TEAMING PARTNER LIST FOR ROBUST AFFORDABLE NEXT GENERATION EV STORAGE (RANGE)

In early to mid-February, 2013, the Advanced Research Projects Agency ­ Energy (ARPA-E) intends to issue a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Robust Affordable Next Generation EV Storage” (RANGE), DE-FOA-0000869. The objective of the RANGE FOA will be to identify transformational concepts for low-cost, robust storage systems for electric vehicles. Two specific areas of interest are: (1) robust designs of energy storage chemistries and architectures; and (2) multifunctional designs based on robust storage systems.
 
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 RANGE FOA on ARPA-E eXCHANGE (http://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov), ARPA-E’s online application portal, in early to mid-February, 2013.
 
Any organization that would like to be included in this list should complete all required fields in the following link:  https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov/Applicantprofile.aspxRequired information includes:  Organization Name, Contact Name, Contact Address, Contact Email, Contact Phone, Organization Type, Focus Area, and Brief Description of Capabilities. ARPA-E is particularly interested in receiving responses from organizations with expertise in the following Focus Areas: computational and experimental approaches to novel robust energy storage materials and reactions, fabrication and manufacturing of energy storage systems, multifunctional material, device, and system designs, energy absorption materials and architectures, electric vehicle subsystem and system designs, energy storage system robustness, electric vehicle robustness, thermal and mechanical engineering, system integrators, high temperature electronics, aerospace engineering and composite materials systems.
 
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 early to mid-February, 2013 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.
