The U.S. Department of Energy has created an online resource to help researchers, manufacturers, and distributors locate funding opportunities to help advance and deploy innovative, energy-saving solid-state lighting (SSL) products. Please note that DOE does not necessarily endorse or administer the programs or resources listed. You will find the opportunities and resources listed below and more at ssl.energy.gov/ incentives.html.

DOE Lighting Programs
R&D R&D M MD SSL Core Technology projects focus on applied research needed to advance the technical knowledge base for SSL to be used for general illumination applications. Updates are posted at ssl.energy.gov.
SSL Product Development projects seek to develop or improve commercially viable materials, devices, or systems. Updates are posted at ssl.energy.gov.
Manufacturing Support projects advance the technology’s adoption by making
SSL competitive with existing technologies on a first-cost basis. Learn more at
The L Prize® is a government-sponsored technology competition to spur lighting manufacturers to develop high-quality, high-efficiency SSL products to replace
the common light bulb. Learn more at lightingprize.org.
Other DOE Funding Programs
R&D R&D MD The Office of Science provides basic research grants through an annual solicitation process. Learn more at science.doe.gov/grants.
