ARPA-E awards $130M to 66 “OPEN 2012” transformational energy technology projects

Green Car Congress

The US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) has selected 66 research projects to receive a total of $130 million in funding through its “OPEN 2012” program. ARPA-E’s first funding opportunity, “OPEN 2009,” was issued three years ago and was similarly an open call for transformational energy technology solutions. Energy-Dense Aviation Fuels from Biomass. The Allylix project team will develop energy-dense terpenes as.
