Top R&D Achievements in Energy-Saving Lighting Honored at DOE Workshop

The Energy Department recognized six research and development project teams at "Transformations in Lighting," its ninth annual Solid-State Lighting R&D Workshop, held this year in Atlanta. The following organizations were recognized by DOE:

  • Cree, Inc., was recognized for developing a novel LED that enables a new, high-efficiency driver (i.e., power supply) architecture to improve overall lighting system efficacy.
  • Osram Sylvania was recognized for its work developing an LED replacement for 2'x2' fluorescent fixtures (i.e., troffers) that has achieved extremely high energy efficiency.
  • Philips Lighting was recognized for its efforts to develop a family of LED drivers that are smaller, lower-cost, and more efficient.
  • Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute was recognized for its efforts to close the "green gap" by improving the color rendering of LEDs.
  • Universal Display Corporation was recognized for completing two pre-prototype under-cabinet phosphorescent OLED systems that have achieved high efficiency levels.
  • White Optics was recognized for developing a composite coating to optimize the light output of SSL systems by maximizing reflection.
