    According to Philips, Hue produces 600 Lumen when turned on at full brightness. This is equivalent to a 50 Watt incandescent bulb. Hue draws around 8.5 Watts of power to produce 600 Lumen output. As far as ENERGY STAR Certification goes, it will not qualified because of its price. According to EPA, "If the qualified product costs more than a conventional, less-efficient counterpart, purchasers will recover their investment in increased energy efficiency through utility bill savings, within a reasonable period of time." The bulb itself use less energy than most CFL but it will not qualified for Energy Star because of it cost. And that's the main reason why a lot of LED are not Energy Star Certified.... yet.
