L Prize Competition

You are here

The L Prize® competition drives game-changing innovation to accelerate America’s shift from inefficient, dated lighting technology to innovative, high-performance lighting solutions.

The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 directed the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to establish the Bright Tomorrow Lighting Prize (L Prize) competition. The L Prize is the first government-sponsored technology competition designed to spur lighting technology developers to develop high-quality, high-efficiency solid-state lighting products that set leading-edge performance benchmarks for industry.
