We’ve written about ARPA-E projects many times here on CleanTechnica — it’s into some of the key things we’re all about. So, there’s no passing up this cool video above on ARPA-E, some of the projects its funding, and one of Obama’s favorite terms — inventing the future.
As you can see, the video features Arun Majumdar, director of ARPA-E; wind energy startup Makani power; and a seaweed (kelp) to fuel project from the Bio Architecture Lab (BAL). Of course, there are soooo many more projects under the ARPA-E umbrella — take a stroll through our ARPA-E articles for a look at more of them.
As a reminder, ARPA-E is modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is most well known for bringing us the internet and GPS (as noted in the video).
The video, “The Energy Fixers,” is a collaboration between GE’s Ecomagination and VICE’s Motherboard.
