The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced up to $100 million in funding for clean energy technology research and development through its Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy’s (ARPA-E) “OPEN 2021” funding opportunity.

“The first of billions of dollars of DOE R&D opportunities to be announced this year, this funding will help identify cutting-edge, disruptive clean energy technologies to address the climate crisis,” the DOE said in February.

Potential applicants can visit ARPA-E’s newly launched OPEN 2021 website to access information and resources, including a teaming partner list for help forming new project teams and identifying potential collaborations, and webinars featuring program directors discussing technical areas they hope to pursue.
