Ecosphere Technologies Receives U.S. Patent For Mobile Solar Power System

STUART, Fla., Nov. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPH), an innovative U.S. technology licensing and manufacturing company that develops environmental solutions for global markets, today announced that the United States Patent & Trademark Office has approved U.S. Patent No. 8,593,102 for Ecosphere's revolutionary Ecos PowerCube ®, a portable, self-contained micro-utility that uses solar power to provide electricity in the most remote, off-grid locations.

Designed to meet the growing demand for off-grid energy, with a unique array of stacked solar panels, the patented Ecos PowerCube ® maximizes the total amount of solar power generation possible in 10', 20' and 40' standard ISO shipping container footprints. With power generation capabilities up to 15 KW, the Ecos PowerCube ® can be transported by land, air, or sea and is ideally suited to support off-grid military, disaster relief, humanitarian and mobile communication efforts.

Electricity generated by the Ecos PowerCube ® can be used to power various onboard systems, including satellite communications, Internet connectivity, and mobile water treatment systems. The Ecos Power Cube ® system can also be used to supply military or disaster relief teams with life-sustaining, mobile infrastructure modules, such as hospitals, command centers, sleeping quarters, and temporary schools.

In a recent Bloomberg article dated October 1, 2013, Army commanders have found that they can save lives through energy conservation. This is especially true in Afghanistan, where protecting fuel convoys is one of the most dangerous jobs, with one casualty for every 24 missions in some years. Richard Kidd, the deputy assistant secretary of the Army in charge of energy security, said in a recent interview, "A fuel tanker can be shot at and blown up. The sun's rays will still be there. With renewable energy, there is no supply chain vulnerability, there are no commodity costs and there's a lower chance of disruption."
