Energy Focus has announced that it recently received a $446,000 order to supply its recently qualified LED lighting fixtures to retrofit two US Navy destroyers.

The products ordered include Energy Focus LED Berth lights using its proprietary IntelliTube technology to replace fluorescent T-5 fixtures at half the power as well as its LED globe products using state of the art white, yellow, red and blue LEDs to replace incandescent globe fixtures saving 80% or more of the energy.

The products being supplied were developed and qualified under contracts from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) TechSolutions Program and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

"LED lights particularly make sense on destroyers," said Roger Buelow, Energy Focus Chief Technology Officer and principal investigator for the ONR's SSL project.

"The Navy calculates electrical energy costs at about 55 cents per kilowatt hour - or more than double the highest US residential or commercial rates. In addition, the lights we designed for the Navy are extremely vibration resistant - a problem for both incandescent and fluorescent bulbs that the conversion to our SSL LED lights solves."

"We are delighted to supply these additional US Navy ships with Energy Focus' next generation LED SSL products," said Joe Kaveski, Energy Focus CEO.

Compared to gasoline, hydrogen is lightweight, can provide a higher energy density and is readily available. But there's a reason we're not alread ... read more
