The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a solid-state lighting (SSL) R&D funding opportunity on October 12, 2016. Under this funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0001613, “Solid-State Lighting Advanced Technology R&D—2017”), a total of up to $10 million in funding is directed toward all three existing DOE SSL R&D program areas:

  • Core Technology Research—Applied research aiming to demonstrate scientific principles, technical application, and application benefits, and encompassing scientific efforts that focus on new knowledge or understanding of the subject under study, with specific application to SSL.

  • Product Development —The development of commercially viable, state-of-the-art SSL materials, devices, or luminaires using concepts from basic and applied research.

  • U.S. Manufacturing —Research to develop advanced manufacturing approaches to reduce the cost of SSL sources and luminaires and improve product consistency and quality, with the additional benefit of supporting the development of U.S. based manufacturing.

DOE will select up to 10 projects. Concept papers are due by November 14, 2016, and full applications are due by January 10, 2017. For more information on the new funding opportunity, visit https://eere-exchange.energy.gov/.
