DE-FOA-0001557: High-Efficacy Replacement Lamps for General Lighting Incandescent Lamps

The Emerging Technologies (ET) Program of the United States (U.S.) Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office (BTO) is seeking information from the public on incandescent lamps in general illumination applications.

The ET Program supports applied research and development (R&D) for technologies and systems that contribute to reductions in building energy consumption and helps to enable cost-effective, energy-efficient technologies to be developed and introduced into the marketplace. The following are key areas of interest:

1. Incandescent lamps that currently do not have a suitable replacement lamp meeting or exceeding 45 lumens per watt (lm/W).
2. Gaps in technology that impede (or would likely impede) the design, development and future sale of greater than or equal to 45 lm/W replacement lighting products.

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to gather feedback from stakeholders prior to DOE potentially issuing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). This RFI is not a FOA; therefore, DOE is not accepting applications at this time. All responses to this RFI must be provided as an attachment (in Microsoft Word format) to an e-mail message addressed to Responses must be received no later than 5:00PM EDT on April 4, 2016.
