DOE Publishes Updated SSL R&D Plan

April 1, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy has published the March 2010 edition of the Solid-State Lighting (SSL) R&D Multi-Year Program Plan (MYPP). The report provides a description of the activities the Department plans to undertake over the next several years to implement its SSL mission.

The document reviews SSL technology status and trends for both light emitting diodes (LEDs) and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), and offers an overview of the current DOE SSL R&D project portfolio. Significant updates to the Technology Research and Development Plan include updated milestones to align DOE targets with progress made to date, and special attention to definitions, to align the MYPP terminology with the recently published IES Recommended Practice RP-16, Addendum a.

The Department will continue to update the Multi-Year Plan on an annual basis to incorporate new analysis, progress, and new research priorities as science evolves. Download the updated Plan (PDF 3.3 MB).
