The US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) announced $15 million in funding for 23 projects to accelerate the incorporation of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI).

The funding is hoped to accelerate the development of AI and ML into energy technology and product design processes as part of the Design Intelligence Fostering Formidable Energy Reduction (and) Enabling Novel Totally Impactful Advanced Technology Enhancements (DIFFERENTIATE) programme. 

Launched in April of this year, the DIFFERENTIATE programme aims to develop streamlined solutions to next-generation energy challenges. The program identified three general mathematical optimisation problems that are common to many design processes. The selected projects then conceptualised machine learning and artificial intelligence-based solutions to help engineers execute and solve these problems in a manner that dramatically accelerates the pace of energy innovation.
