Congressman Tim Ryan Applauds Biden Administration Announcement of $100 Million for Clean Energy Solutions
Washington, DC – Congressman Tim Ryan today applauded the U.S. Department of Energy announcement of a $100 million investment in support of the Biden Administration’s climate innovation agenda, which will fund transformative clean energy technology research and development projects. The Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy’s (ARPA-E) OPEN 2021 funding will help identify cutting-edge, disruptive clean energy technologies to address the climate crisis.
“As we continue the transformation of our local economy by embracing clean energy solutions and the coming production of electric vehicles, this is a tremendous opportunity for northeastern Ohio to be on the front edge of an energy revolution,” said Congressman Ryan. “With BRITE Energy Innovators and other assets already in place, this investment will be a game-changer for businesses and workers in our community.”
The 2021 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) was issued on February 11, 2021 and concept papers are due by April 6, 2021. Since ARPA-E opened its doors in 2009, the agency has issued an OPEN funding announcement approximately every three years.
