The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has released the March 2009 edition of the Multi-Year Program Plan FY'09-FY'15; Solid-State Lighting Research and Development. The report provides a description of the activities the Department plans to undertake in the period of FY'09 through FY'15 to implement its SSL mission.
