DOE Releases Updated SSL R&D Multi-Year Plan

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.

The document reviews significant R&D accomplishments in 2008, a new lighting competition announcement, and a recap of several major DOE-led government-industry meetings. Additionally, the document provides information on current portfolio and funding opportunities, as well as an update on Congressional Appropriations for SSL as of March 2009. Significant updates to the Technology Research and Development Plan include revised definitions of components of a solid-state lighting luminaire to comply with IES standards, a greater emphasis on luminaire issues in product development for both LEDs and OLEDs, revised task structure and new priorities for core and product development tasks for both LEDs and OLEDs, and an updated list of technical, cost, and market barriers.
        
The Department will continue to update the Multi-Year Plan on a regular basis to incorporate new analyses, progress, and new research priorities as science evolves. Download the updated Plan (PDF 5.2 MB).
