DOE Publishes Updated SSL R&D Plan

Widely referenced by industry and government both here and abroad, the R&D Plan reflects the consensus view of the community on key barriers, technology challenges to address, and where R&D efforts are required over the next three to five years. It provides analysis and direction for ongoing R&D activities to advance SSL technology and increase energy savings, reviewing SSL technology status and trends for both LEDs and OLEDs and offering an overview of the current DOE SSL R&D project portfolio. Among the more noteworthy changes were deeper dives into source efficacy, light utilization, and improved performance and design, as well as the addition of sections on cost of ownership, sustainability, and new functionality.
