Gary C. Evans, CEO of GreenHunter Energy, to Be Keynote Speaker at the Alternative Energy Investment Symposium in New York City

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - Gary C. Evans, founder and CEO of GreenHunter Energy, Inc., will make a keynote presentation entitled "Alternative Energy - A Former Oil Man's Renewed Perspective" at the Alternative Energy Investment Symposium in New York City at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 28, 2007.

Evans' presentation will reflect on the present state of the Alternative Energy sector and includes a look at current levels of domestic and international renewable energy production, provides comparisons of biodiesel and ethanol as earth-friendly motor fuels, and summarizes global investment in wind energy, solar energy, biofuels and biomass.

Evans speaks from the unique perspective of a successful former oil and gas operator who has "jumped the fence" to assemble a portfolio of alternative energy production businesses, including building the largest U.S. biodiesel refinery located in Houston, developing wind farms in the Midwest and western states, and upgrading a biomass electrical generation plant in Southern California that will be fueled by cow manure and wood waste.

Evans was founder and CEO of Magnum Hunter Resources, a highly successful NYSE listed oil and gas exploration and production company that Evans started with $1,000 in 1985 and sold for $2.2 billion in 2005 to Cimarex Energy ("XEC").

The Alternative Energy Investment Symposium begins today at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in Midtown Manhattan. The symposium is sponsored by Oil and Gas Investor, the Global Biofuels Center and The Deal LLC.
