The new report focuses on three key areas: commercialization (noting the rapid uptake of SSL since the 2013 report), technology development (updating the findings of the 2013 report) and manufacturing. In the process, the NAS committee has updated material that was presented in the earlier study.

The new report makes a number of recommendations:
