Boston, Mass., – April 13, 2010 – Mass High Tech, the journal of New England technology, has
announced that it will host the third annual cleantech forum as part of its quarterly breakfast

hiring trends.

The conference – themed “Work, Live, Sustain” – will be hosted by the Seaport Hotel in Boston,

an opening keynote by Patrick Cloney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Clean Energy
Center that will provide an update on the governor’s clean energy challenge and the state of
public funding.

“Massachusetts and New England overall has become a hotbed of clean technology innovation,
driven in large part by strong stimulus funding support as well as venture capital funding,” said
Douglas Banks, publisher and editor, Mass High Tech. “This year’s Cleantech Forum will further
showcase some emerging companies in the region, as well as drive awareness on the issues,
trends and solutions driving adoption locally and regionally.”

The interactive panel session will focus on how successful cleantech companies today must
provide superior, innovative technology and deliver value throughout the lifecycle of their
deployment in order to make clean technologies more deployable. Participants include Tom
Pincince, president and CEO of Digital Lumens; Jonathan Guerster, CEO of Groom Energy
Solutions; Ted Stimpson, CEO, Imagitas Inc., a Pitney Bowes Co.; Geoff Chapin, Founder and
CEO, Next Step Living; and David Douglas, Senior Fellow at the Breakthrough Institute and
former Chief Sustainability Officer at Sun Microsystems. The panel will be moderated by John
Loughnane, a partner with Eckert Seamans, a national law firm with over 320 attorneys located in
Boston and in offices throughout the eastern United States.

The technology showcase will highlight emerging cleantech companies in New England to
showcase and demonstrate their product/device/technology during the networking portion of the
Forum, which will occur before and after the panel discussion. The showcase will consist of
Advanced Electron Beams, Free Flow Power, Harvest Power, Next Step Living, Powerhouse
