Hyperions New Small, Transportable Nuclear Power Module from Hyperion Power Generation to be Discussed at Key Energy Events this Spring


LOS ALAMOS, N.M., March 18, 2009 — Spring is presenting several opportunities for those interested in new technology and alternative energy to learn about the Hyperion Power Module (HPM). For example, executives of Hyperion Power Generation, which is developing the unique, small, transportable nuclear power module will be speaking at events in Annapolis, MD; Calgary, Alberta; Santa Fe, N.M., and Baton Rouge, LA.

The companys CEO, John R. Grizz Deal, will discuss the HPM on March 23 at the Global New Energy Summit sponsored by the Rocky Mountain Technology Alliance. This event, chaired by former U.S. Senator Pete Domenici, a nuclear energy advocate, will be held in Santa Fe.

Hyperion will also be presenting at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis. Deborah Blackwell, Hyperion V.P. of Licensing and Public Policy, will talk about the HPMs features at the Corbin A. McNeill Symposium on March 30.

In addition, the Alternative Energy Finance Forum will host Deal on March 31 in Calgary and Blackwell will speak at the Center for Energy Studies at Louisiana State University on April 22 at their conference on “Sustainable Development in a Challenging Economy.”

Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the HPM intellectual property portfolio has been licensed to Hyperion Power Generation for commercialization under the laboratorys technology transfer program. Inherently safe, 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 when connected to a steam turbine – enough to provide electricity for 20,000 average American-size homes or the industrial equivalent. Three factories, spread across the globe are planned to produce 4,000 units of the first design.
