America’s SSL Team

You are here

Solid-state lighting (SSL) is on track to slash electricity consumption for lighting by an astonishing 75 percent by 2035 and is already beginning to deliver impressive savings. Further, many innovators see SSL as a backbone for the Internet of Things, with connected lighting systems underlying smart, energy-efficient, safe, and productive buildings and cities. R&D will be essential in unlocking these benefits and driving SSL forward. Find out how strategic R&D investments by DOE and industry partners are sparking a lighting revolution and positioning America for global success.
