2 D. Work - Philips Strategies in Light Feb. 04 Next Generation Lighting Initiative NGLI – what is it? 2002 context (107 th Congress) 2003 context (108 th Congress) 2004 context (108 th Congress) NGL Industry Alliance – what is it? 2003 context 2004 context

Alliance of for-profit corporations formed to accelerate Solid State Lighting (SSL) development and commercialization through government-industry partnership Charter – Support of Inorganic and Organic based SSL: Public Advocacy for SSL and Next Generation Lighting Initiative (yes, we lobby for SSL) Promotion and support of DOE’s ongoing assessment of SSL potential, the state of SSL technology, and DOE’s SSL R&D Program (we work to be a good partner today) Facilitation of communication between NGLIA members and other parties with a substantial interest in SSL and the Next Generation Lighting Initiative

5 D. Work - Philips Strategies in Light Feb. 04 The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance Why do we exist? Lighting & emerging SSL for-profit corporations need a forum for communication and collaboration: – Recognizable body for DOE contact: Government – Industry Collaboration Model Feedback on DOE roadmapping, R&D strategies “reasonable access” to IP generated under DOE R&D – Collaborative lobbying for increased DOE funding, and for promoting SSL interests to the federal government, with or without an energy bill
