The Energy Transition Needs AI

The Ken Kennedy Institute

The COP26 Climate Change Conference is over and The Glasgow Climate Pact is live — it’s the first ever UN climate deal to explicitly mention the need to phase out coal power and move away from fossil fuel subsidies. Though the language may be watered-down, the message is clear: The transition of greener forms of energy must be rapidly prioritized, especially in more developed countries.

But inciting a large-scale energy transition is not as simple as flipping a switch. Energy infrastructures and supply chains are vastly complex, presenting an urgent need for coordination. And in order for a green energy transition to be truly sustainable, it must also be able to provide stability and cost-savings.

U.S. Department of Energy Announces $100 Million to Support Cutting-Edge Clean Energy Technologies

ARPA-E issued a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for up to $100 million to support the deployment of novel technologies that can significantly change how communities, industries and businesses reduce emissions, promote energy efficiency, and drive grid modernization. The funding program supports President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda by lowering emissions, generating good-paying jobs, and securing U.S. leadership on clean energy technologies.

The program — Seeding Critical Advances for Leading Energy technologies with Untapped Potential (SCALEUP) — provides further funding to previous ARPA-E awardees whose projects have been determined to be feasible for U.S. widespread deployment and commercialization. SCALEUP selectees will demonstrate a viable path to commercial deployment and the ability to attract private sector investments.
