Sunvault Energy Adds Robert Murray-Smith PHD to its Board of Directors

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 1, 2015) - SUNVAULT ENERGY INC. ("Sunvault") ("the Company") (OTCQB:SVLT) is pleased to announce that it has added Robert Murray-Smith PHD to its Board of Directors.

Dr. Robert Murray-Smith is a renowned PHD who wrote his PHD Thesis Titled: Dynamic simulations of carbons and carbon composite materials at Southhampton University in 1989. Since that time Robert has gone on to become one of the World's finest authorities on graphene. Graphene has many extraordinary properties. It is about 200 times stronger than steel, conducts heat and electricity with great efficiency and is nearly transparent.

In the early nineties, Dr. Murray-Smith was a Research Officer for Imperial Chemical Industries Plc. Later from 1993 to 1998 he was the Senior Research Officer at Sutton Chemicals in Huddersfield, Yorkshire.

Following as a consultant, Dr. Murray-Smith has developed mechanical testing methods for carbon fiber based polymer composites for the aerospace, military and general consumer applications.

His work with carbons, specifically his world leading work on graphene has lead to his welcomed appointment with Sunvault as a director of the company.

"We are extremely pleased to have Dr. Murray-Smith join our board of directors," commented Gary Monaghan, Sunvault Energy CEO. "His contributions towards the combined work on our graphene battery will lead to the development of a graphene battery that will be far beyond anyone's current expectations," he added.

Over the last number of weeks Sunvault technical team members and Dr. Robert Murray-Smith have developed what they believe to be a world changing graphene supercapacitor / battery. The size of the battery that the company believes it has created has far surpassed any industry expectations of what is believed could be created with graphene today. In the weeks to come the Company will begin independent third party verifications of this exciting development.

For clarification purposes, the battery that has been produced has been produced completely outside of the previously announced Supervault joint venture agreement. Sunvault Energy for speed to market reasons and for final product capability has developed in conjunction with Dr. Robert Murray- Smith a more robust and expansive graphene super capacitor /battery. A product with the fast charging elements of a supercapacitor combined with the power density of a battery. The methods used were not any used by the former Supervault JV.

Recently Sunvault Energy notified Supervault that it intends to withdraw from the joint venture because of the lack of a development plan that was to be initiated within 60 days of signature of the agreement.

The Company is very pleased with the advancements it has made on its own development initiatives and looks forward to future developments.

The next several weeks will involve conditioning and testing the battery and running through charging and discharging cycles. This will prepare for third party independent verification procedures.
