Nuclear Energy Pioneer Hyperion Power Generation to Participate in the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver


DENVER, COLORADO, AUGUST 20, 2008 — Hyperion Power Generation, the
developer of the world’s first small, transportable, commercial nuclear power reactor, will
participate in the Democratic National Convention’s “2008 Civic Celebration” on Sunday,
August 24 at Area C. The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Mile
High City’s Civic Center Park.

With over 50,000 people coming to Denver, the Sunday event is a unique and affordable
way for Colorado to showcase its culture and diversity during the DNC. John R. “Grizz”
Deal, CEO of Hyperion, agrees and believes it is an excellent opportunity to interact
directly with the public concerning key public policy issues, and the global energy crisis
in particular.

“Our view is certainly that nuclear energy must become a bigger part of the power mix in
the United States, along with other renewable energy such as wind and solar” said Deal.

“The Hyperion Power Module (HPM) can make clean, affordable power a reality where
it was never before thought possible.”

We see the DNC’s civic event in the park as an ideal venue for reaching savvy citizens
concerned about energy and the future of the planet in general. We want to reach out to
the public and have an open dialogue about nuclear power and its benefits.”

Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the Hyperion Power Module 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 in a
technology unlike any other currently in development or use that builds on the decades of
safe and secure use of academic and training reactors at universities and laboratories.
Approximately 4,000 units of the same design will be produced, sealed and shipped from
company manufacturing sites around the globe.
