DOE selects 14 solid-state lighting projects for funding

The National Energy Technology Laboratory, on behalf of the US Department of Energy (DOE), has selected 14 projects for solid-state lighting (SSL) funding opportunities.

These projects were chosen in response to Round 5 of Core Technology and Product Development Funding Opportunity Announcements. These selections are anticipated to contribute to the goal of the SSL program to develop advanced solid-state lighting technologies that are much more energy efficient, longer lasting, and cost competitive.

These technologies will target a product system efficiency of 50 percent with lighting that accurately reproduces the sunlight spectrum.

All 14 new selections are covered under the Exceptional Circumstances Determination issued by DOE in June 2005. The selections are listed below (subject to negotiation):

7 Core Technology Research Selections
