Hyperion Power Generation to Present its Small, Transportable Nuclear Power Reactor Module at Key Energy Innovation Conferences


LOS ALAMOS, N.M., September 18, 2008 — Attendees of two important conferences about
emerging energy technology will have an opportunity this October to meet with principals from
Hyperion Power Generation, Inc. (http://www.gen4energy.com), and learn about the
companys nuclear energy module, the Hyperion Power Module (HPM).

The first conference to feature the HPM in October is the Dow Jones Alternative Energy
Innovations conference (http://alternativeenergy.dowjones.com). This event, October 21-22 in San
Francisco, brings together the key players in the alternative energy and management space to give
attendees access to business plan presentations by CEOs from the sectors most promising start-ups, a
look at which technologies are on VCs radars and why, analyst views on key trends, and more.

Another premiere clean energy investment event is the National Renewable Energy
Laboratorys (NREL) 21st Industry Growth Conference, October 28-30, in Denver, Colorado.
Hyperion Power Generation was selected out of hundreds of applicants to present at the NREL
conference. The NREL forum (http://www.cleanenergyforum.com) provides a deep understanding of
the evolving energy market and what a business must do to thrive. Hyperion will compete for one of
NRELs four cash prizes for Clean Energy Entrepreneur of the Year.

Inherently safe, the HPM utilizes the energy of low-enriched uranium fuel and will be licensed
by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Each unit produces 70 megawatts of thermal energy, or
27 megawatts of electricity when connected to a steam turbine. That amount is enough to provide
electricity for 20,000 average-size American-style homes or the industrial equivalent. Extremely
proliferation-resistant, the HPM meets all of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnerships stringent criteria
for the safe and secure deployment of small grid-appropriate nuclear reactors for distributed power.

Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Hyperion Power Module intellectual
property portfolio has been licensed to Hyperion Power Generation for commercialization under the
laboratorys technology transfer program. The company has already received commitments for ten
HPMs, priced at around $25 million each, for various locations. Three factories spread across the globe
are planned by the company to produce and ship the approximately 4,000 units of the first design.
