The Department of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory, on behalf of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Building Technologies Program, is seeking applications for applied research in the Solid State Lighting (SSL) Core Technologies Program. DOE has set aggressive and ambitious goals for SSL research and development: By 2015, to develop advanced solid state lighting technologies that, compared with conventional lighting technologies, are much more energy efficient, longer-lasting, and cost-competitive. The objective of this announcement is to support applied research in certain key technical areas by fostering a collaborative atmosphere favorable to overcoming the significant, although not impossible, technical challenges that restrict the application of SSL today to only relatively low luminous output products.
