  1. DE-FOA-0002239: Aviation-Class Synergistically Cooled ElectricMotors with Integrated Drives (ASCEND)

    Release Date: 12-16-2019Open Date: 12-16-2019Due Date: 01-31-2020Close Date: 01-31-2020

    The ASCEND program supports the development of novel lightweight and ultra-efficient electric motors, drives, and associated thermal management system (collectively referred to as the all-electric powertrain) that will facilitate net-zero carbon emissions in the single-aisle, 150-200 passenger commercial aircraft segment. This FOA represents part of a wider ARPA-E effort in the development of enab ...

  2. DE-FOA-0002241: Range Extenders for Electric Aviation with Low Carbon and High Efficiency (REEACH)

    Release Date: 12-16-2019Open Date: 12-16-2019Due Date: 01-31-2020Close Date: 01-31-2020

    ARPA-E seeks to mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with commercial air travel at minimum economic cost by developing elements of an ultra-high efficient aircraft propulsion system that uses Carbon Neutral Liquid Fuels (CNLFs). Since these fuels generally either have lower specific-energies (kWh/kg) or are projected to have higher cost than traditional fossil-based jet fuels, ultra-hi ...

  3. DE-FOA-0002251: Systems for Monitoring and Analytics for Renewable Transportation Fuels from Agricultural Resources and Management (SMARTFARM)

    Release Date: 12-18-2019Open Date: 12-18-2019Due Date: 02-19-2020Close Date: 02-19-2020

    U.S. agriculture has the potential to produce ~5 Quadrillion Btu of energy in the form of biofuels, and with new innovations throughout the biofuel supply chain, these fuels could become carbon negative. Reaching this potential and achieving greater carbon reductions requires that feedstock producers adopt new technologies and management practices that simultaneously improve yield, drive down prod ...
