Laboratory Equipment Donation Program (LEDP)

The Laboratory Equipment Donation Program (LEDP) provides excess laboratory equipment to full-time faculty at accredited, postsecondary, non-profit degree granting institutions including universities, colleges, community colleges, or junior colleges, located in the U.S. and interested in establishing or upgrading energy-oriented science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) educational programs. An energy-oriented program is defined as an academic education or research activity dealing primarily or entirely in energy-related topics.

The LEDP primary equipment donation website and application system has been migrated. Applications for equipment donation through LEDP may only be made at This site also provides access to the catalog of available equipment.

Through LEDP, colleges and universities can search for available equipment of interest and apply via the LEDP online application system. The equipment is free, but the receiving institution pays for shipping costs.

The LEDP application site only lists those items that fall within the Federal Supply Group Classification Code 66, Instruments and Laboratory Equipment, providing a list most relevant to energy-related research being conducted in an academic laboratory. Making equipment available through LEDP gives universities/colleges access to the available equipment list after there are no internal claims by DOE sites, but 30 days before the equipment is more broadly available through GSAxcess. Hence, the LEDP catalog of available equipment has a 30-day rolling exclusivity.
