NASA’s unique government initiative, NASA iTech, seeks out cutting-edge technologies with applicability to NASA’s mission. For the present 2018 NASA iTech Energy Cycle, the agency is partnering with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (DOE ARPA-E) to identify strategic energy-tech innovations that have potential to meet demands of life on earth and space exploration.
Through a competitive selection process, NASA and DOE ARPA-E have crowdsourced almost 100 energy-tech solutions in the areas of advanced fuel cells, high density batteries, solar power systems, advanced nuclear reactors, super capacitors, power management and distribution systems and other X-factor energy ideas. From these submissions, NASA’s Chief Technologists and DOE’s ARPA-E subject matter experts will select the ten finalists with the greatest potential to commercialize their technologies and address both agencies’ energy gaps.
We invite you to join the 2018 NASA iTech Cycle II Energy Forum, where the finalists will present and workshop their solutions. During the two-day event, you will participate alongside innovators, scientists, investors and industry leaders in a series of impact tables with each of the finalists, and a series of thematic discussions with leading energy sector experts.
At the close of the Forum, NASA will recognize the top three innovations, as judged by NASA and DOE experts.
Citi is proud to host and support the 2018 NASA iTech Cycle II Energy Forum. The Forum event will be held at Citi Global Headquarters at 388 Greenwich Street, New York, NY, June 13-14.
