Composite Technology Announces Order for 500 Kilometers of ACCC Core for First Significant Production of ACCC Conductor in China

ACCC Core Order From Jiangsu Far East

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2007) - Composite Technology Corporation (CTC) (OTCBB: CPTC) is pleased to announce that its CTC Cable subsidiary has received an order for 500 kilometers (approximately 310 miles) of ACCC core in four sizes that will be used by Jiangsu New Far East Cable Corporation's Far East Composite Technology division to produce four sizes of ACCC conductor by stranding aluminum under the recently announced Manufacturing Agreement. When these ACCC conductors are delivered to the regional power bureaus and placed in transmission lines, the installed base of ACCC conductor will be over 3,484 kilometers (approximately 2,165 miles) worldwide.

Jiangsu Far East has passed aluminum stranding certification on the first sizes of ACCC conductor and CTC Cable expects to complete certification for their production of several additional conductor sizes shortly. CTC Cable's technical specialists will conduct inspection of Jiangsu Far East's stranding facility in Yixing City, Jiangsu, China, in January and February of 2008. CTC Cable will continue to produce all ACCC core at its ISO 9001:2000 certified facilities in Irvine, California, where core production capacities are being expanded.

Marv Sepe, COO of CTC and President of CTC Cable, commented, "Jiangsu Far East has successfully demonstrated its first production of ACCC conductor and has continued to meet its minimum purchase agreement. We believe that production of the finished ACCC conductor in China will allow Jiangsu Far East to continue to advance sales and installation of ACCC conductor within the country, now that half of the completed conductor is 'Made in China.'"

About CTC:

Composite Technology Corporation, based in Irvine, California, USA develops, manufactures and sells innovative high performance electrical transmission and renewable energy generation products through its subsidiaries:

--  CTC Cable Corporation produces composite rod for use in its patented
    ACCC (aluminum conductor composite core) conductors, which are "high
    efficiency conductors" for use in electrical transmission grid systems.
    ACCC conductors demonstrate less electricity line losses when compared with
    conventional conductors. When deployed in place of conventional conductors
    on existing systems, the higher efficiency of ACCC conductors enable power
    generators to reduce the amount of power they must generate while still
    delivering the same power to the customers.  They have also demonstrated
    significant savings in upgrade capital costs and operating expenses when
    substituted for other conductors. ACCC conductors enable grid operators to
    reduce blackouts and brownouts, providing a 'reserve electrical capacity'
    by operating at higher temperatures without significant thermal sag of the
    lines. ACCC conductors are an innovative economical solution for
    reconductoring power lines, constructing new lines and crossing large
    spans. ACCC composite rod is delivered to qualified conductor manufacturers
    worldwide for local ACCC conductor production and resale into local
--  DeWind Inc., designs, produces, and sells the DeWind series of wind
    energy turbines, including the new 2 megawatt D8.2 model available in both
    50Hz and 60Hz; the 2MW D8 model in 50Hz; and the 1.25MW D6 model in 50Hz.
    The new D8.2, which has been operating since early 2007 at Cuxhaven,
    Germany, utilizes the advanced WinDrive® hydrodynamic torque converter
    developed by Voith AG with a synchronous AC generator that is able to
    connect directly to the grid at high voltage without the use of power
    conversion electronics. Preparations are being completed for a 60Hz version
    to be installed in Sweetwater, Texas, for certification to US standards.
    Commercial D8.2 turbines will be assembled at TECO Westinghouse Motor
    Company in Texas, which will supply turbines in 2008 for our North and
    South American customers.
