ARPA-E New Funding Opportunity Announcement

ARPA-E has released a Funding Opportunity Announcement for its newest program, Traveler Response Architecture using Novel Signaling for Network Efficiency in Transportation (TRANSNET). The program aims to optimize energy efficiency in multimodal, urban transportation networks (e.g., personal vehicles, buses, light rail, etc.).

Transportation systems are responsible for more than 25% of domestic energy use, but currently no one is exploring holistic solutions to optimizing energy use throughout the entire network. Project teams funded through TRANSNETs will initially focus on designing simulations to demonstrate the potential impact of network optimization for energy efficiency and on designing appropriate network control architectures.

The deadline to submit a Concept Paper for TRANSNET is 5 p.m. EST on Monday, December 22, 2014. Additional information, including the full Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and how to find project teaming partners, is available on ARPA-E’s online application portal, ARPA-E eXCHANGE.
