DOE Offers up to $10 Million to Improve Energy-Saving Lighting

DOE announced on Sept. 26 the availability of up to $10 million in funding for energy-saving lighting technologies. DOE will invest in projects to accelerate manufacturing research and development related to solid-state lighting (SSL) technologies. The focus will be on applications that use semiconductors to provide light in such devices as LEDs and OLEDs. The goal is to strengthen the United States' position as a global manufacturing leader and help create jobs. Between two and four projects will be selected to receive up to $10 million. Projects should address the technical challenges that must be overcome before prices fall to a level where SSL will become competitive with existing lighting on a first-cost basis. Potential applicants should note that applications are due by December 15, 2011.
