WASHINGTON, D.C., AUGUST 10, 2009 — The Honorable William C. (Bill) Anderson, former Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Environment and Logistics and Senior Energy Executive, Pentagon, has been named to the Business Advisory Board for Hyperion Power Generation Inc.

As Assistant Secretary of the Air Force, Bill Anderson was the primary spokesman on energy and environmental stewardship.

He directed policy and execution in a portfolio covering military installations, energy strategy, supply chain management and environment, safety and occupational health. Anderson was presented with the Presidential Award for Leadership in Federal Energy Management in 2007. Currently President/CEO of the energy consulting firm Anderson Global Innovation Group, Bill Andersons career has included work as a financial and tax consultant, and 15 years at General Electric in global business management. These positions culminated in a post as General Manager Environmental, Health and Safety for GE Consumer and Industrial in Plainville, CT.

A graduate of Washington College in Maryland, Anderson also has a J.D. from Syracuse University College of Law in New York, and participated in the International MBA program at the University of Miami School of Business in Coral Gables, Florida.

We are very excited to have Bill join us, said Deborah Blackwell, Hyperions Vice President of Public Policy. His 25 years of innovative leadership in diverse global business and government operations, along with his transformational, aggressive thinking on energy strategy make him a valuable team member at Hyperion.

Hyperion is developing a unique, new, small transportable nuclear power reactor that will provide a cost-efficient source of clean, emission-free, baseload energy to provide crucial independent power. The applications include electricity for military installations; heat, steam and electricity for mining operations; and electricity for local infrastructure and clean water processes in communities around the globe.

Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the (Hyperion Power Module) HPM intellectual property portfolio was licensed to Hyperion Power Generation for commercialization under the laboratorys technology transfer program. Inherently safe, and self-moderating, the HPM utilizes the energy of low-enriched uranium fuel and meets all the non-proliferation criteria of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP). Each unit produces 70 MWt or 27 MWe enough to provide electricity for 20,000 average American-size homes or the industrial equivalent. Approximately 1.5 meters wide by 2 meters tall, the units can be transported by ship, rail or truck and produce power for five to seven years depending on usage.
