SOLID STATE LIGHTING CORE TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAM

NOTE: This is a descriptive overview only of the Funding Opportunity
Announcement. Please scroll to the bottom of this page under the section
entitled Full Announcement and Other Files to see the entire Announcement
-
it is attached as a Word file. You must read the entire Announcement for
additional information, evaluation criteria and application preparation
instructions. Additionally, please note that this Funding Opportunity
contains
six program Areas of Interest. Applications cannot be submitted directly
under
this Master Announcement but must be submitted under the Area of Interest
which
best fits the majority of the effort to be performed.

The Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory
(NETL),
on behalf of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy apos;s
(EERE)
Building Technologies Program (BT), 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 to
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.

While the current generation of SSL products are commercially viable and in

some instances, may serve the energy conservation goals of the DOE, they
are
most often used in markets that do not produce the large energy
conservation
objectives sought by DOE. Moreover, the technical challenges that impede
penetration into mainstream general illumination markets are complex and
require the combined resources of many researchers and perhaps, the unique
research tools found only at a limited number of universities, National
Laboratories and research institutions. It may be difficult to overcome
these
critical technical challenges without a focused Government initiative.
Partly,
this is because the high payoffs sought may be judged too risky for
industry to
undertake alone. Thus, the collaborations sought under this Funding
Opportunity Announcement will buy down or reduce the level of technical
risk
by providing significant financial resources, yet will allow any resultant
intellectual property to remain with the performing organization compliant
with
the applicable guidelines specified in the announcement.

The specific focus of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to insure
that
the LR D portfolio of SSL technology sufficiently addresses the Core
Technologies that can be readily and widely applied to existing and future
lighting products, which in turn will be energy efficient and cost
competitive. It is in this collaborative atmosphere that applications are
sought; applications that are truly innovative and groundbreaking, fill
technology gaps, provide enabling knowledge or data, and will represent a
significant advancement in the SSL technology base.

Applications are sought in the following six areas:
