EVAPCO presents water saving power plant design to DC policymakers

Date:

EVAPCO was selected to attend the 2018 ARPA-E Congressional Showcase that took place March 12 in the Dirksen Senate Building on Capitol Hill.



 ARPA-E, or Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, is a United States government agency tasked with promoting and funding research and development of advanced energy technologies. It is modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. EVAPCO partnered with the University of Cincinnati to present our “Enhanced Air-Cooling System with Optimized Asynchronously-Cooled Thermal Energy Storage.” Top research teams were selected by ARPA-E and presented to members of Congress and their staffers, most are members of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. Five ARPA-E performers were selected to exhibit at the event.

  • University of Cincinnati and Evapco (ARID)
  • Gas Technology Institute (FOCUS)
  • Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (TERRA)
  • ProsumerGrid (OPEN 2015)
  • Sila Nanotechnologies (IONICS)
We had the opportunity to discuss our project with staffers for Senator Ben Cardin and Senator Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, as well as staffers for the Senators of Utah, Idaho, the Director of ARPA-E and DOE staff. The Congressional Showcase is organized concurrently with the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit taking place this week at National Harbor.
