The broad objective of SEED is to identify and support disruptive concepts in energy-related technologies within small businesses, including collaborations with universities and national labs. Projects funded through SEED should have the potential for large-scale impact. If successful, projects should create new paradigms in energy technology and have the potential to achieve significant reductions in U.S. energy consumption (measured in quads), energy-related imports (measured in quads), or energy-related emissions (measured in megatons/gigatons of CO2 or CH4, etc.). Awards under this program will support research projects that establish potential new areas for technology development and provide ARPA-E with information that could lead to new ARPA-E focused funding programs. Awards may support exploratory research to establish viability, proof-of-concept demonstration for new energy technology, and/or modeling and simulation efforts to guide development for new energy technologies.
