DOE Announces Selections for SSL R&D Funding Opportunity

The U.S. Department of Energy has announced the competitive selection of nine solid-state lighting (SSL) projects to receive funding, in response to the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0001171 (“Solid-State Lighting Advanced Technology R&D – 2015”). These one- to two-year projects will focus on 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

Total DOE funding for the nine projects is more than US $8.2 million and leverages a cost-share contribution from each recipient, for a total public-private investment of over $11.5 million.

This is the tenth round of DOE funding for SSL core technology research and product development, and the sixth round for U.S. SSL manufacturing R&D. These efforts are part of DOE's initiative to accelerate the adoption of SSL technology through improvements that reduce costs and enhance product quality and performance.
