The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies that are too early for private-sector investment.  A significant portion of ARPA-e funding focuses on distributed energy resources — both generation and storage.  The Edison Institute and Brattle Group estimate a whopping $1.5-2.0 trillion dollars will be invested in generation, transmission and distribution (GT&D) infrastructure between now and 2030.  On what these dollars are spent, and the distribution of those expenditures between G, T & D, will largely be determined by improvements in cost, efficiency and reliability of distributed generation and storage technologies like batteries, fuel cells, small engines, distributed and central PV, etc.  At ARPA-e, in addition to the obvious technology focus of our programs, there is a “Technology-to-Market” (T2M) imprint that assures that both the right projects are being pursued and that, if they are successful, they have a viable path to the marketplace.  Dr. Tuttle will discuss his views on where new energy technology markets might be headed, how PV will fit in (both now and in the future), how the T2M element fits into those decisions, and how ARPA-e fits into the bigger picture of early-stage technology investment.
