DOE Releases SSL Manufacturing R&D Roadmap

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published a Solid-State Lighting Manufacturing R&D Roadmap, the end product of two stakeholder workshops sponsored by DOE in 2009. The Roadmap represents industry consensus on the expected evolution of SSL manufacturing, best practices, and opportunities for improvement and collaboration.

The Roadmap is intended to complement the DOE SSL R&D Multi-Year Program Plan, and will guide DOE planning and future solicitations related to the new SSL manufacturing initiative. This new initiative has two primary goals: to enhance product consistency and quality and to accelerate cost reductions through manufacturing improvements. A third objective is to encourage domestic U.S.-based manufacturing of SSL products. In addition, the Roadmap is intended to act as a guide for equipment and material suppliers, to reduce the risk and, ultimately, the cost of entering into SSL manufacturing.
    
The Roadmap will be reviewed annually by DOE in collaboration with industry partners and updated to reflect progress and resultant changes in priorities for achieving the ultimate goals of the program.

A copy of the Solid-State Lighting Manufacturing R&D Roadmap can be downloaded here or from the DoE homepage.
