LED lighting technology solutions provider Revolution Lighting Technologies (RVLT) has assigned specialty advisor Cohen Group to analyse and strategise the company’s actions to help bid for future LED retrofit contracts with the US Navy.

The bidding is anticipated to take place this year after the US Navy announced in August 2015 the use of LED tube lighting throughout global shore facilities, including administrative buildings, athletic facilities, street lights, and parking garage facilities, in addition to its fleet.

Cohen Group senior counsellor admiral Jim Loy said: "Revolution Lighting has a great history of delivering market-leading LED lighting solutions across all industries, including for military and federal installations.

The technology is expected to constitute 3% of the total energy reduction while being utilised aboard a military vessel, and subsequently contribute to $150m in the total fleet energy savings.
