The Energy Department announced nine research and development projects that will receive funding to support solid-state lighting core technology research and product development.

SSL technologies based on LEDs and OLEDs are about ten times more energy-efficient than conventional incandescent lighting and can last more than 25 times longer.

Philips Lumileds Lighting Company, LLC-Reducing the cost and increasing the efficiency of LED lighting products by developing a high-voltage LED light engine with a built-in driver.

Philips Research North America, LLC-Developing an innovative, energy-efficient LED lighting system for hospital patient suites that takes into consideration health and wellbeing as well as visual needs.

Pixelligent Technologies, LLC-Improving the efficiency of OLED lighting by using nanocrystals to increase the light extraction. Princeton University-Increasing the efficiency of OLED lighting on flexible substrates by enhancing the light extraction and removing costly materials.

University of California-Improving energy efficiency and reducing the manufacturing cost of OLED lighting through the use of an integrated plastic substrate instead of the usual glass with indium tin oxide.
