DE-FOA-0001428: INNOVATIVE DEVELOPMENT IN ENERGY-RELATED APPLIED SCIENCE (IDEAS)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) provides a continuing opportunity for the rapid support of early-stage applied research to explore innovative new concepts with the potential for transformational and disruptive changes in energy technology. IDEAS awards are intended to be flexible and may take the form of analyses or exploratory research that provides the agency with information useful for the subsequent development of focused technology programs. IDEAS awards may also support proof-of-concept research to develop a unique technology concept, either in an area not currently supported by the agency or as a potential enhancement to an ongoing focused technology program. Applications must propose concepts that are not covered by open ARPA-E focused FOAs and that also do not represent incremental improvements over existing technology.

IDEAS awards are defined as single-phase efforts of durations 12 months or less with a total project cost of $500,000 or less and will be issued through Grants.

This FOA is a continuation of the IDEAS Program initially announced in September 2013 and continued for a second year in September 2014. ARPA-E continues to view the IDEAS program as a success and therefore plans to extend this FOA on an annual basis, based on the availability of funds.

DE-FOA-0001797: Innovative Natural-Gas Technologies for Efficiency Gain in Reliable and Affordable Thermochemical Electricity-Generation (INTEGRATE)

The objective of the INTEGRATE Program is to reduce the cost and increase the primary energy efficiency associated with the provision of electric power to commercial and industrial end users. In this program, ARPA-E seeks to develop natural gas-fueled distributed electric generation systems that offer fuel to electric power conversion efficiencies in excess of 70%. The INTEGRATE program will focus on hybrid system designs that integrate a fuel cell with a heat or reactive engine for ultra-high efficiency at competitive costs. This FOA seeks to encourage the development of the enabling technologies that will make these hybrid systems a reality, and a successful INTEGRATE program will provide highly flexible distributed energy technology options with unprecedented efficiency and lower emissions than today's fossil-fuel generated electricity. Furthermore, the technologies that this program seeks to develop are also expected to have broad electric-power-generation and transportation market applications.

ARPA-E recognizes the significance of system cost with respect to commercialization; a highly efficient and flexible system must also be economically attractive to customers and manufacturers. Hence, the simultaneous attainment of conversion efficiency and installed cost targets that would yield attractive financial returns for all stakeholders will be the major focus of the INTEGRATE Program.

In pursuit of the above-mentioned economic and environmental benefits, ARPA-E seeks to encourage the development of distributed generation systems of ≥100 kW that have electric efficiencies in excess of 70% on a lower heating value (LHV) basis and an installed cost to the end user of less than $1.8/W. ARPA-E’s market analysis suggests that the simultaneous attainment of these efficiency and cost targets could yield a 1 Quad/year annual reduction in the primary energy[1] that our nation uses to generate its electric power. This reduction would translate into a $3B/year fuel cost savings for the US economy.

Additionally, the envisioned hybrid systems technologies would operate in a water neutral manner in that the systems would self-generate any water required for operation. This feature is in stark contrast to the water-based cooling systems utilized in many of our utility-scale thermoelectric power plants. Consequently, a water-savings of 4 billion gallons per day (~1% of our total fresh water withdrawal) would be commensurate with the above-mentioned fuel savings. This water-savings would translate into another $~2B/year in cost savings for the US economy.

In order to accelerate the development of technologies that could enable this unprecedented thermoeconomic performance, ARPA-E is encouraging the development of the requisite system and component technologies. It is anticipated that such technologies would include advanced integrated engine/balance-of-plant (BOP) concepts, advanced fuel cell stack concepts and manufacturing approaches, advanced BOP components (e.g. high temperature heat exchangers), and advanced control system technologies.

DE-FOA-0001798: MODELING-ENHANCED INNOVATIONS TRAILBLAZING NUCLEAR ENERGY REINVIGORATION (MEITNER)

Nuclear reactor plants are complex systems where many types and scales of technologies must work together seamlessly. Design choices at each of those scales and for each of those technologies impact the rest of the system in terms of functionality, cost, and constructability.

For nuclear energy to contribute in the coming decades, the next generation of nuclear reactor plants need to simultaneously achieve “walkaway” safe and secure operation, extremely low construction capital costs, and dramatically shorter construction and commissioning times than currently-available plants. To attain these goals, new, innovative, enabling technologies for existing advanced reactor designs are needed. The development of these enabling technologies requires understanding the inter-relatedness of design choices. Thus, ARPA-E encourages a rethinking of how pieces of the nuclear reactor system fit together when developing these enabling technologies.

Through the MEITNER[1] (Modeling-Enhanced Innovations Trailblazing Nuclear Energy Reinvigoration) program, ARPA-E seeks to identify and develop innovative technologies to enable the advanced nuclear reactor design community to mature their designs for future commercial deployment. These enabling technologies can establish the basis for a modern, domestic supply chain supporting nuclear technology.

As provided in this FOA, ARPA-E will select multiple Awardees (Prime Recipients) to develop innovative technologies using advanced modeling and simulation (M&S) tools and by leveraging expert input to enable advanced reactor systems.[2] The MEITNER Program will establish a set of well-characterized enabling technologies where:

performance and safety have been studied with multi-physics M&S tools;key cost and performance drivers have been identified for critical development and testing;key gaps in models or data have been identified, which can be addressed through targeted experimental work;costs and construction timelines are well projected; androbust techno-economic analysis (TEA) has been performed and a clear technology-to-market (T2M) plan has been created.

MEITNER Awardees will perform key enabling technology development for nuclear reactor systems, components, and structures, moving those technologies toward commercialization. The program will not support development of fundamentally new reactor core concepts nor the design of entire reactor plants. This approach is intended to focus on identifying and developing key enabling technologies for the existing U.S. advanced reactor design community that take advantage of fields adjacent to those that are typically considered nuclear energy research and development (R&D). The MEITNER Program will use modeling and simulation and, optionally, applied science and engineering-based experimental work.

The MEITNER Program will require a system-level approach in describing and quantifying how new and innovative enabling technologies fit into a plant design to make the plant “walkaway” safe, quickly-deployable, safeguardable, cost-competitive, and commercially-viable. To facilitate such a holistic view, ARPA-E will establish a separately-funded Resource Team to work with Awardees, as described in Section 2.3 below. The Resource Team will consist of three coordinated sub-teams: a computational modeling and simulation (M&S) sub-team, a techno-economic analysis (TEA) sub-team, and a subject matter expert (SME) sub-team (see Section I.E of the FOA). Through the Resource Team, Awardees will have access to SMEs from both the nuclear and non-nuclear disciplines. These resources will allow Awardees to more accurately place their enabling technologies into the larger reactor plant context.

Awardees are encouraged to leverage DOE Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) programs, such as the GAIN (Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear) initiative (https://www.inl.gov/research-program/gain) and the Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) Network (https://nsuf.inl.gov/), to perform strategic experiments–either during or after completion of the Program.

DE-FOA-0001858: OPEN 2018

This FOA marks the fourth 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 and 2015. OPEN 2018 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 the other 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 remarkable 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 perfect complement to the agency’s focused technology programs – a unique combination of approaches for supporting the most innovative and current energy technology R&D. Indeed, one third of the sixty projects featured in the first two volumes describing ARPA-E impacts stem from OPEN solicitations (https://arpa-e.energy.gov/?q=site-page/arpa-e-impact). Potential applicants to this FOA are strongly encouraged to examine the OPEN projects in these two volumes and all of the projects supported in the previous three OPEN solicitations (https://arpa-e.energy.gov/?q=site-page/open) for examples of the creative and innovative R&D ARPA-E seeks in its OPEN solicitations.

RFI-0000031: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for an upcoming Funding Opportunity Announcement: MEITNER

Webinar:  In this webinar, ARPA-E Program Director Rachel Slaybaugh provides an overview of the Modeling-Enhanced Innovations Trailblazing Nuclear Energy Reinvigoration (MEITNER) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). https://arpa-e.energy.gov/?q=video-other/arpa-e-meitner-foa-overview-webinar


The Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA–E) intends to issue a new Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to support R&D on advanced nuclear reactor technologies that enable safe, secure, and flexible energy production by nuclear fission with dramatically lower capital and operating costs. These technologies are expected to be deployed for electricity production and/or uses such as production of industrial process heat or desalination.

Nuclear power plants currently provide nearly 20% of the total U.S. electricity generation with 99 operating nuclear reactors for a total installed capacity of 98.7 GW. These nuclear plants are all conventional, light-water cooled reactors (LWRs), which have been the workhorse of the nuclear industry for several decades now. However, nuclear power in the U.S. is facing significant challenges of high operational and maintenance costs, the impending retirement of power plants as reactors near the end of their operational lifetimes, and very slow, expensive construction of new LWR power plants to replace retirements or supplement the existing fleet.

The U.S. and many other countries around the world have explored new reactor types beyond LWR technology, including different coolants, moderators, fuels, and reactor core designs. These advanced reactor concepts are commonly called “Gen IV” nuclear reactors. While there is great promise for advanced Gen IV designs, there remain a large number of technical challenges – ranging from understanding of fundamental issues in materials to systems-level engineering for safe, practical, and economical construction and operation – before they are ready for deployment.

ARPA-E is planning a new R&D program seeking innovative designs of advanced nuclear power plants and computational validations of these designs that can achieve safe, secure, and economical power production. The envisioned program seeks transformative designs and manufacturing technologies to achieve semi-autonomous “walk-away safe” and secure operation; extremely low construction capital costs; and dramatically faster construction and commissioning times based on technologies such as modular assemblies and factory manufacturing. The program seeks cross-disciplinary teams of innovators from the nuclear community and other scientific and engineering disciplines to instill new, creative approaches in solving fundamental challenges in nuclear power plant design, construction, and operation. Success in this program will establish a set of high-fidelity designs of new advanced nuclear reactors and set a path for the U.S. to lead the world in “Gen IV and beyond” nuclear power technologies.

In order to realize the goals of this program, expertise in the following areas may be useful:

Factory manufacturing of safety-grade and/or large componentsLoad following and grid integrationGeneration of co-products such as industrial process heat, desalination, or hydrogenAdvanced construction techniques Reactor physics, neutronics, and shieldingStructural and functional materials Chemistry, chemical interactions, corrosion, and coolant chemistry controlNuclear fuel design, fabrication, and performancePower conversion, heat transportSensors, instrumentation, controls, autonomous operation, roboticsDiagnostics and prognosticsSafety, severe accidents, environmental impactsTechno-economic analysisNuclear security and safeguardsUsed fuel and waste managementAdvanced/emerging technologies (such as advanced manufacturing)

Major experimental activities will not be funded under this program. However, it is the intent of ARPA-E to identify key experiments that need to be performed to validate the innovative designs in order to retire the key technical risks associated with the nuclear power plant designs. The proposal teams are encouraged to leverage other DOE Office of Nuclear Energy programs such as the GAIN (Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear) initiative (https://gain.inl.gov) to perform such experiments either during or after completion of the program.

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. 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. The Teaming Partner List will be available on ARPA-E eXCHANGE (http://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov), ARPA-E’s online application portal, starting May 26, 2017. 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.

Any organization that would like to be included on this list should complete all required fields in the following link: https://arpa-e-foa.energy.gov/Applicantprofile.aspx.

RFI-0000033: Announcement of Teaming Partner List for an upcoming Funding Opportunity Announcement: OPEN 2018

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, covering transportation and stationary applications. 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.

ARPA-E aims to bring together different technical communities to solve big energy challenges and fill the gaps or “whitespace” in a field. We 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 2018 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 voluntarily 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 2018 FOA.

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