DOE announces 2016 funding opportunity for solid-state lighting R&D

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the 'Solid-State Lighting Advanced Technology R&Dā€”2016' funding opportunity (DE-FOA-0001364)), under which a total of up to $10.5m in funding is directed toward all three existing DOE solid-state lighting (SSL) R&D program areas for both light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technologies:

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

The objectives of this latest funding opportunity are to: maximize the energy efficiency of SSL products in the marketplace; remove market barriers through improvements to lifetime, color quality, and lighting system performance; reduce costs of SSL sources and luminaires; improve product consistency while maintaining high-quality products; and encourage the growth, leadership and sustainability of domestic US manufacturing within SSL industry

The DOE will select up to 10 projects. Concept papers are due by 20 November and full applications are due by 20 January 2016.
