ARPA-E: A Fresh Perspective on Next-Generation EV Battery Technology
Ilan Gur, ARPA-E Program Director,

The Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) was created to be the "DARPA for Energy", with a focus on game-changing R&D that can reduce U.S. energy use and emissions.  ARPA-E is funding a wide range of breakthrough battery technologies to accelerate adoption of electrified vehicles.  This presentation will highlight a few of the fresh approaches that go beyond simply finding the next "holy grail" battery chemistry, including innovations in system architecture, advanced controls, power topologies, and thermal management.  

All are welcome to attend!

Refreshments before seminar starting at 3:45PM in room 113.
