The Energy Department announced $10 million to support research, development, and manufacturing of solid-state lighting (SSL) technologies across the country. This funding will accelerate the development of high-quality light-emitting diode (LED) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) products with the potential to reduce lighting energy use for American families and businesses by one half and enhance U.S. global competitiveness.

During the past 10 years, the Department has helped accelerate SSL technology deployment, yielding an estimated energy savings of $1.8 billion in 2013. Solid-state lighting technologies, which include both LED and organic light emitting diode technologies, have the potential to save Americans $26 billion a year in energy costs by 2030.
 
Today, available LED technology is about 150 lumens per watt; the Energy Department's target is 250 lumens per watt – a 75% increase. Higher performing LEDS will help reduce overall costs and increase lighting efficiency.
