OLED Coalition
What is NGLIA?
Alliance of for-profit U.S. corporations formed to accelerate U.S. Solid State
Lighting (SSL) development and commercialization through government-industry
partnership. Membership open to any private, for-profit firm substantially active in
solid state lighting research, development, infrastructure, and manufacturing in the

What is the OLED Coalition?
A group of U.S. companies and advocates of OLED technology joined together to be
the recognized voice for the OLED General Lighting Industry in the U.S.
– Promote the industry to the government, public and the lighting community
– Provide consolidated industry inputs on standards, as appropriate

What is the Solid State Lighting Program
Next Generation Lighting Initiative
Sec. 912 of Energy Policy Act of 2005 directed DOE launch NGLI to
support R&D, demonstration and commercial applications, and select
an industry partner organization. The National Academy of Sciences
periodically reviews the DOE program.
Areas of Work of the Program:
Research & Development
Core technology
Product development
Standards Development
Coordination with industry organizations

What Is Solid State Lighting?
• Fundamentally different from
conventional technologies
Compact size
Long operating life
• Energy Efficient
• Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
• Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs)
OLED Coalition
How is OLED different from LED?
OLEDs are solid-state devices composed of thin films of
organic materials that create light with the application of
OLEDs are being used for electronic displays and are now
emerging as a solution for architectural lighting in

Success of Existing DOE SSL Structure
Program highly regarded by industry
Significant results in a relatively short period of time
Reviewed by NSF with high accolades
 Well coordinated and fully integrated
 Singular objective – advance market adoption of SSL technologies
 Time sensitive
 Trusted by all stakeholders
This is a model DOE should be using for technology advancement.

SSL Program Status Report
Rapid technical progress being made, supported by industry-DOE partnership
U.S. manufacturing with support of international supply chains
SSL products on the U.S. market
OLED Coalition
Efficacy using today’s techniques leveling off
Significant technology headroom remains
Need for breakthroughs vs. incremental improvements
Bring down cost to manufacture (materials & processes)
Capital investments: plant, equipment
Bring down first-cost to the consumer
International Competition (China $ 1 billion annually, several others $100
million annually)

Much Deeper Energy Savings Still Achievable
Difference between projected and potential energy savings remains large
(~2 quads or 130 TWh annually or ~ 11.9 million homes); clearly, there is
still much to be done.
Similar energy savings whether OLED or LED

SSL Program Changes by DOE
DOE has decided to reallocate R&D support for FY2016 which
jeopardizes the program and U.S. SSL leadership
DOE Changes Include:
 Moved MSSLC to Building Technologies
 Moved IEA International Support to Regulatory Program
 Moved PNNL Test Equipment to Regulatory Program
 DOE Management has directed that deployment type activities within SSL cease
by end of FY15
 Include L Prize money in expenses
OLED Coalition
Bottom Line
SSL is still a rapidly changing technology, and is not ready for
standard “deployment programs.”
 We need the high technical content of the current DOE SSL
efforts to help identify technical issues our industry can solve.
 Moving programs out of SSL program will harm their
effectiveness, and slow market adoption.
 The President’s request is a cut to the program
OLED Coalition
Requests / Recommendations
 The SSL R&D Program is to receive $40 million in 2016, and all
funds are to be spent by the SSL R&D Program, with no credit for
funds spent by other BTO programs that include lighting
 The L Prize funding will be designated as ‘No Year Funding’ and
will come from other BTO funds
