The ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit is the premier event that showcases America’s future energy technologies. This unique event brings together thought leaders from academia, business, and government to discuss cutting-edge energy issues and facilitate relationships to help move technologies into the marketplace. Participants include ARPA-E Awardees, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors, corporate executives, and government leaders.
The Summit’s strategic combination of leaders makes it the perfect forum for sharing and developing energy solutions.
The ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit is an annual conference and technology showcase that brings together experts from different technical disciplines and professional communities to think about America’s energy challenges in new and innovative ways. The Summit offers a unique, three-day program aimed at moving transformational energy technologies out of the lab and into the market. Join other energy industry experts, thought leaders, and decision makers at the Summit to:
Experience first-hand the latest technological advancements across a wide variety of energy sectors
Attend practical seminars about transitioning cutting-edge technologies into successful commercial products
Network with breakthrough technology companies, federal government leaders, entrepreneurs and researchers who are ready to collaborate
Meet influential government, research labs, and private-sector leaders and learn about partnerships and funding opportunities
Hear insightful keynotes from industry leaders and luminaries on the future of energy technology
Apply to have your breakthrough technology featured in the highly regarded Technology Showcase
The Summit Technology Showcase displays over 250 innovative energy technologies, including those from ARPA-E funded project teams - many of which have never before been publicly displayed.
Summit Partners can connect with technologists through the Corporate Acceleration Program and generate significant brand exposure through exhibit and sponsorship opportunities.
Summit Student Program
The Summit Student Program provides the next-generation of America's energy innovators with an opportunity to learn about cutting-edge energy issues and interact with companies searching for new talent.
The Technology Showcase at the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit offers a look at America's future energy technologies. Showcase participants include ARPA-E-funded project teams as well as a highly selective group of researchers and technologists from other companies and organizations.
The ARPA-E Technology Showcase Features:
Unlike other conferences where anyone who pays the booth fee can participate, the participants in the ARPA-E Technology Showcase must pass a thorough vetting process to be included. Our vetting process ensures that attendees are meeting with the best in the industry.
Expected attendees include the nation’s leading individuals and organizations in energy innovation. These attendees include: scientific researchers, venture capital investors, financial institutions, technology entrepreneurs, large and small corporations with an interest in transformational energy technologies, and policymakers from the U.S. Congress and Federal Government.
Who Can Participate
Active ARPA-E Awardee project teams are automatically approved to participate in the Showcase. Other organizations may apply to exhibit in the Technology Showcase. Technology Showcase applicants must have a transformational energy technology to demonstrate in their exhibit space. The portal to apply to exhibit in the Technology Showcase will open in autumn 2016.
