The US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science has awarded three Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants targeting key advances in solid-state lighting (SSL) technology:
- VoltServer, Inc. (Phase II): Low-Cost, High-Efficiency Integration of SSL and Building Controls using a PET Power Distribution System
- MoJo Labs Inc. (Phase II): Daylighting Digital Dimmer
- OLEDWorks LLC (Phase I): Pedestrian-Friendly OLED Luminaire
These three awards will explore different technical and commercial innovative concepts that are expected to contribute to the achievement of DOE’s price and performance goals for SSL. The two Phase II projects were selected from among 54 successful FY14 Phase I grants, and the Phase I project was selected along with 161 other FY15 Phase I grants. Only successful Phase I recipients are eligible for consideration of a Phase II grant. To learn more about these awards, visit the DOE SSL website.
The SBIR/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program within the DOE Office of Science seeks to increase the participation of small businesses in federal research and development. To learn more about this program, visit http://science.energy.gov/sbir/.
