New Small, Transportable Nuclear “Battery” from Hyperion Power Generation to be presented at International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) 52nd General Conference in Vienna, Austria


LOS ALAMOS, N.M., September 9, 2008 — Members of the International Atomic Energy
Agency (IAEA) will have an opportunity to learn about Hyperion Power Generation’s (HPG - http://www.gen4energy.com) unique, small, nuclear power module firsthand
from the company’s CEO at the 52nd General Conference September 29-October 3. John R.
Grizz Deal, CEO, and James Jones, director of business development, will personally staff an
exhibit at the IAEA’s annual conference in Vienna, Austria.


The HPG exhibit is part of a Civil Nuclear Industry promotion sponsored by the U.S.
Departments of Commerce, State and Energy to provide information about new nuclear
technology and solutions for both developing and established nuclear powered countries.

“We are enthusiastic about this opportunity at IAEA,” said
Deal. “The Hyperion Power Module was originally conceived
to provide clean, affordable power for remote industrial
applications such as oil sands operations. Yet, there has
been an outstanding amount of interest from those
needing reliable electricity for remote or ‘power-
challenged’ communities. In fact, our first sales
commitments have come from companies building mixed-
use developments in Europe. This has been good because
the HPM (Hyperion Power Module), meeting all the non-
proliferation criteria of GNEP (the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership), is an excellent solution
for any location. Encompassing the simple concepts of the world’s training reactors that have
been operating for decades, the HPM makes it possible to deliver safe, continuous, clean,
emission-free energy with only a fraction of the human oversight and financial investment
required by conventional nuclear power stations.”

Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the HPM intellectual property portfolio has
been licensed to Hyperion Power Generation for commercialization under the laboratory’s
technology transfer program. Inherently safe and proliferation-resistant, the HPM utilizes the
energy of low-enriched uranium fuel. 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
produce4,000 units of the first design.
