Renewable Power Applications to Be Showcased by Cyclone Power Technologies at Engine Show

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - November 24, 2008) - Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CYPW) will be showcasing its award-winning engines at POWER-GEN International 2008, being held December 2-4 in Orlando, Florida.

Of particular interest will be a display of the Company's Waste Heat Engine (WHE) attached to its proprietary solar thermal collector. A single 10" x 4" reflective trough is capable of providing sufficient heat to the WHE to generate approximately 0.5 HP of mechanical output. Arranged atop a small business building, shopping center or flat-roofed home, an array of solar troughs can be used to generate much of the electricity requirements for that facility at a substantially reduced cost from comparable photovoltaic systems.

The Company expects that applications for the WHE with renewable fuel sources, such as the sun and even biomass, may comprise major markets for this highly adaptable, patent-pending steam engine. However, as the name implies, the Waste Heat Engine is also capable of small-scale co-generation applications, from commercial ovens to industrial furnaces or even truck engine exhaust systems.

"The versatility of the WHE is one of its greatest assets," stated Cyclone's COO, Frankie Fruge. "From renewable fuels to wasted heat, the WHE will be able to fill many niche power generation markets starting in 2009."

Cyclone recently announced its initial sale of a beta WHE system, this one to provide electricity for a glass manufacturing company from the heat expelled from its industrial furnaces. This first installation will be a unique co-generation application for the WHE, which will derive all of its power from otherwise wasted heat. The net result of this efficiency process will be less electricity consumption and fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

This year is the 20th anniversary of POWER-GEN International, one of the world's premier conferences for the power generation market. More than 17,000 industry professionals from 76 countries, and more than 1,200 companies, will be in attendance at the show according to the official web site. POWER-GEN will be held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, Dec. 2-4. It is open to the public.

CORPORATE PROFILE

Cyclone Power Technologies is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine -- an eco-friendly external combustion engine with the power and versatility to run everything from portable electric generators and garden equipment to cars, trucks and locomotives. Invented by company founder and CEO Harry Schoell, the patented Cyclone Engine is a modern day steam engine, ingeniously designed to achieve high thermal efficiencies through a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on virtually any fuel -- including bio-diesels, syngas or solar -- while emitting fewer greenhouse gases and irritating pollutants into the air. Currently in its late stages of development, the Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008, and was presented with the Society of Automotive Engineers' AEI Tech Award in 2006 and 2008. Additionally, Cyclone was recently named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County Environmental Protection Department. For more information, visit www.cyclonepower.com.
