Press release from: GeneSiC Semiconductor

Dulles, VA – GeneSiC Semiconductor is excited to announce its selection for the prestigious Technology Showcase at the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, co-hosted by the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) and the Clean Technology and Sustainable Industries Organization (CTSI). Hundreds of top technologists and cutting-edge clean tech organizations competed to participate in the Showcase, a hallway of America’s most promising prospects for winning the future in energy.

As one of ARPA-E’s selected organizations, GeneSiC Semiconductor will exhibit its Silicon Carbide to nearly 2,000 national leaders gathering to drive long-term American competitiveness in the energy sector, including top researchers, investors, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and government officials. More than 200 groundbreaking technologies from ARPA-E awardees, corporations, National Labs and Department of Energy R&D programs will be featured at the event.

“This Summit brings together organizations that understand the need to collaborate and partner to bring the next generation of energy technologies to market,” said GeneSiC Semiconductor, President, Dr. Ranbir Singh. “It’s a rare and exciting opportunity to have so many key players in the energy community together under one roof and we look forward to sharing our Silicon Carbide Power Devices with other innovators and investors at the Technology Showcase.”

Research and business development teams from 14 Corporate Acceleration Partners committed to technology commercialization will also be present including Dow, Bosch, Applied Materials and Lockheed Martin.

The Summit also features high-profile speakers including U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu, ARPA-E Director Arun Majumdar, U.S. Navy Secretary Raymond Mabus, former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bank of America Chairman Charles Holliday.

The second annual ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit will take place February 28 - March 2, 2011 at the Gaylord Convention Center just outside Washington, D.C. To learn more or to register please visit: www.ct-si.org/events/EnergyInnovation .
