Energy & Engine Technology Corporation Announces Meeting With the Local Leaders

PLANO, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 21, 2006 -- Energy & Engine Technology Corporation (OTC BB: EENT), a leading developer of auxiliary power generators for the long haul trucking industry, today announced that Sr. VP Paul Baumann of EENT met with Colorado state leaders including representatives from Governor Bill Owens' office and Congressman Bob Beauprez in Denver yesterday.

EENT manufactures auxiliary power units (APUs), a technology which greatly reduces the need for truck drivers to idle their truck engines in order to receive power for climate control and other creature comforts in the cab. APUs use only a fraction of the diesel fuel consumed by idling a truck's main engine, thereby reducing both fuel costs and diesel emissions by a significant margin.

The Company has targeted the State of Colorado as a key market for its products. Colorado is an important trucking hub, as it links the Midwest and the West Coast.

In discussing the press conference, Paul Baumann, EENT's Sr. VP, stated: "It is an honor to meet with such esteemed representatives of the State of Colorado to discuss how APUs in general, and more specifically, the AXP 1000 and follow on products, can help keep Colorado's environment clean," says Baumann. "We are honored to have met with representatives of both Colorado and Oregon (including Governor Kulongoski) and the EPA to be able to explain the benefits of EENT's products. Given President Bush's renewed focus on energy independence and conservation, our products and the APU market are being introduced to key players at the opportune time."
