Solid-State Lighting Manufacturing Research & Development - Round 4
Funding: Up to $2,500,000 per award.
Open Date: 11/29/2012
Close Date: 02/21/2013
Funding Organization: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000792
The objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to achieve cost reduction of solid-state lighting (SSL) for general illumination through improvements in manufacturing equipment, processes, or techniques. It is anticipated that success will lead to a more rapid adoption/installation of high-quality SSL products resulting in a significant reduction of energy use and a corresponding reduction of environmental pollutants. A secondary objective is to maintain, in the case of light emitting diodes (LEDs), or establish, in the case of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), the manufacturing and technology base within the US. The Program Areas of Interest for this Announcement include topics for LED and OLED technologies. Improvements to cost-influencing metrics through the proposed approach shall not come at the expense of product performance metrics such as efficacy or color quality.
Program Area of Interest 1: LED Luminaire/Module Manufacturing
Program Area of Interest 2: LED Test and Inspection Equipment
Program Area of Interest 3: OLED Deposition Equipment
Program Area of Interest 4: OLED Materials Manufacturing
