Fiberstars EFO(R) Helps US Green Building Council Achieve its own LEED Certification

SOLON, Ohio, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fiberstars, Inc. (NASDAQ: FBST), the global leader in fiber optic lighting, today announced that the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has installed Fiberstars EFO(R) to illuminate key sections of the Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. EFO is Fiberstars' efficient fiber optic lighting system that uses 1/3 the energy of conventional halogen lighting. Utilizing the EFO system helped the U.S. Green Building Council's designers achieve their own high standard for energy efficient design and meet the Council's own LEED requirements.

The U.S. Green Building Council's core purpose is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built and operated, enabling an environmentally and socially responsible, healthy, and prosperous environment that improves the quality of life. It is also the driving force behind LEED(R), the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System(TM), the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings' performance. LEED promotes a whole- building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.

LEED for Commercial Interiors sets the national green benchmark for the tenant improvement market and is the recognized standard for certifying high- performance green interiors that are healthy, productive places to work, are less costly to operate and maintain, and reduce environmental footprint. LEED for Commercial Interiors gives the power to make sustainable choices to tenants and designers, who do not always have control over whole building operations. Fiberstars fiber optic lighting helped achieve the design goals of reducing excess lighting and also dealing with the challenge of the unusually low floor-to-floor heights of 8'4" in the Council Headquarters building, which complicated the overall planning with regards to ductwork, lighting, and electrical.

"This project exemplifies the value of Fiberstars technology," said Fiberstars CEO John Davenport. "By incorporating EFO, USGBC can expect to drastically reduce its lighting energy consumption, lower its lighting maintenance costs and reduce waste. In doing so, USGBC has made itself an example of the green building practices it promotes. We are proud that USGBC has chosen Fiberstars to reach this goal."

Many other buildings around the world, including the offices of the prestigious green architecture firm Gensler and the Bank of America building now under construction in Manhattan, use or have specified Fiberstars EFO in order to meet LEED specifications.
