Methane Opportunities for Vehicular Energy Review Precedes NGVAmerica
The federal Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy is holding its MOVE Program Review, an invitation-only conference, September 14-15 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown in Denver. MOVE is the Methane Opportunities for Vehicular Energy initiative overseen by ARPA-E.
The MOVE Review precedes the 2015 North American Natural Gas Vehicle Conference & Expo hosted by NGVAmerica at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver September 15-17.
ARPA-E awarded $30 million to 13 organizations under the MOVE initiative in mid-2012. Nine of the projects addressed the challenge of storing natural gas onboard a vehicle, and four were for development of home fueling equipment (F&F, July 13, 2012).
Progress Toward ‘Greater Use of Natural Gas in Cars and Trucks’
MOVE program director Jason Rugolo will share insights, and “attendees will have the opportunity to learn about advancements made in conformable fuel containers, vehicle refueling, and ANG technologies that will help enable greater use of natural gas in cars and trucks,” says ARPA-E technology to market advisor Sven Mumme.
“The meeting will provide a unique opportunity to network with technology developers and industry and government leaders, and explore partnering opportunities to advance MOVE innovations to the market,” Mumme told F&F.
Dates Set for ARPA-E 2016 Summit
The MOVE Review ends at mid-day on Tuesday, September 15. NGVAmerica’s board meeting takes place that morning, followed by a NGV Conference & Expo networking lunch and awards ceremony at the Colorado Convention Center.
The NGVAmerica exhibit hall opens at 2:00pm on September 15. ARPA-E will mount an exhibit there.
The 2016 ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit will be held February 29-March 2 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. (Washington, D.C.). It’s being organized by EventPower.
