SOLON, Ohio, Sept. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Energy Focus, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFOI), a leader in providing energy efficient lighting solutions, today announced that it has been selected to participate at the Clean Energy Breakfast, part of Climate Week in New York City on September 22, 2010.  The invitation-only event "Financing the Clean Energy Sector: Issues and Opportunities" is co-hosted by Cora Capital Advisors, LLC and Bryan Cave LLP and features a moderated panel of clean technology executives and industry leaders.  The discussion will center on issues and opportunities currently at hand for alternative energy and clean technology companies and investors.  For more information visit about Climate Week, a global forum to mobilize an international public-private response to climate change visit their website at http://www.climateweeknyc2010.org/

Joseph Kaveski, CEO, Energy Focus, Inc. commented: "We are excited to participate in Climate Week, a week long program of meetings, demonstrations, lectures, concerts and exhibitions that call for bold climate action.  The invitation to the investor breakfast is evidence that change agents and investors alike are looking to Energy Focus to help facilitate change and bring about more energy efficient solutions.  While our LED lighting solutions deliver substantial power reductions in existing public and private sector buildings today, we look forward to further dramatic power reductions with the introduction of our next generation Intellitube™ system now under development.  Intellitube," Mr. Kaveski continued, "will allow a new level of energy savings by implementing controls at the bulb level.  An energy 'dumb' building will become energy 'smart' simply by changing the light bulbs."
