DOE Announces Funding Opportunity for Solid-State Lighting R&D

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced a solid-state lighting (SSL) R&D funding opportunity on October 14, 2014. Under this funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0001171, “Solid-State Lighting Advanced Technology R&D – 2015”), a total of up to $10 million in funding is directed toward all three existing DOE SSL R&D program areas:

  • Core Technology Research—the application of fundamental scientific concepts to SSL technology
  • Product Development—using the knowledge gained from basic or applied research to develop or improve commercially viable SSL materials, devices, or systems
  • U.S. Manufacturing—accelerating SSL technology adoption through manufacturing innovations and improvements that reduce costs and enhance quality and consistency

DOE will select up to 10 projects. Concept papers are due by November 14, and applications are due by January 15. In addition, the National Energy Technology Laboratory will hold an informational webinar on the FOA on October 24 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.
