The Advanced Research Projects Agency–Energy (ARPA-E) is devoted exclusively to transformational energy technology research and development. ARPA-E’s mission is to:
- · Enhance U.S. economic security by identifying technologies with the potential to reduce energy imports from foreign sources; reduce energy-related greenhouse gas emissions; and improve efficiency across the energy spectrum.
- · Ensure the U.S. remains a technological leader in developing and deploying advanced energy technologies.
ARPA-E’s Technology-to-Market (T2M) team serves the overall APRA-E mission by working on commercialization strategies across programs and with individual projects. The T2M group works with ARPA-E projects to establish a clear value proposition, market strategy, business model, strong partnerships, and follow-on funding options around the technologies under development.
