Hyperion Power Generation to Reveal “Launch” Design
for its Hyperion Power Module simultaneously at American Nuclear Society’s
Annual Winter Conference and London’s “Powering Toward 2020″ Conference


WASHINGTON, D.C., and LONDON, ENGLAND, November 16, 2009 — At the highly
anticipated Annual Winter Conference of the American Nuclear Society on November 18,
Hyperion Power Generation Inc. will present the “launch” design for the Hyperion Power Module
(HPM) to be deployed into the global market. Details will be revealed by Mark Campagna, Hyperion
Power’s Chief Nuclear Officer, at the technical session on small power reactors at the Omni Shoreham
Hotel in Washington, D.C.

On Thursday November 19, Hyperion Power’s CEO John R. (Grizz) Deal will debut the design at the
Powering Toward 2020 Conference at the Barbican in London, England, in a Masterclass sponsored
by The Mace Group. For more information on the conferences, visit http://www.new.ans.org/ and

Kept under wraps until Wednesday, this initial design of the Hyperion Power Module the company’s
small, modular, nuclear power reactor (SMR) is the first of several reactor systems for Hyperion Power
that have been in co-development with personnel at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and are
planned for construction and deployment. Hyperion Power’s market goals include the distribution of at
least 4,000 transportable, sealed, self-contained, simple-to-operate fission-generated power units that
are euphemistically known as a “nuclear battery.”

Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the original design for the HPM was created by Dr.
Otis (Pete) Peterson and then licensed to Hyperion Power Generation for commercialization under the
laboratory’s technology transfer program. The company’s launch design will remain true to its design
criteria and Dr. Peterson’s vision. Each unit will produce 70 MWt or 25 MWe enough to provide
electricity for 20,000 average American-size homes or the industrial equivalent. Approximately 1.5
meters wide by 2.5 meters tall, the units will be able to be transported by ship, rail, or truck and
produce power for seven to ten years depending on usage. The HPM uses the energy of uranium fuel
and meets all the non-proliferation criteria of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP).

Offering a cost-efficient source of clean, emission-free, baseload energy, the HPM will provide crucial
independent power for military installations; heat, steam and electricity for mining operations; and
electricity for local infrastructure and clean water processes in communities around the globe.
