HydroGen Corporation Reports Results for the Fiscal 2007 Third Quarter

CLEVELAND, OH | Posted on November 8th, 2007

Recent Operational Highlights


* HydroGen Corporation announced that the Pennsylvania Energy
Development Authority (PEDA) granted the Company $500,000 to fund
the design, manufacture, and installation of commercial scale gas
clean-up modules to validate the use of surplus hydrogen-rich coke
oven gas for commercial scale fuel cell power plants to produce
electricity. HydroGen will be working in cooperation with U.S.
Steel's Mon Valley Works plant in Mon Valley, PA.

* The Company also announced that the Pennsylvania NanoMaterials
Commercialization Center awarded the Company approximately $230,000
to support the development of advanced fuel cell catalyst systems.
HydroGen will be working in cooperation with the University of
Pittsburgh's Peterson Institute of Nano Science and Engineering on
this project. This award complements HydroGen's ongoing efforts to
develop state-of-the-art catalysts as recent developments in
nanomaterials have the potential to yield commercially available
fuel cell catalysts that will lead to longer lifetimes and lower
life-cycle costs.

* HydroGen also noted the continued progress for the production and
delivery of a PAFC module to the Company's 400 kW commercial
demonstration power plant at a chlor-alkali manufacturing plant
owned and operated by ASHTA Chemicals, Inc.

"We have made steady progress in our mission to achieve commercialization," said Dr. Leo Blomen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of HydroGen Corporation. "We are working hard to prepare to deliver and validate our core PAFC module at our 400 kW commercial demonstration plant, and anticipate commercial activity in line with our business objectives to follow on the heels of successful demonstration at ASHTA. We have developed a large pipeline of projects with several large generators of by-product hydrogen and other potential customers in North America and abroad who have expressed interest in acquiring fuel cell power plants. We anticipate that as we transition into 2008, the Company will accelerate quickly into commercialization of our technology, with expanded manufacturing activities as well as plant design, engineering, and construction."

Joshua Tosteson, President of HydroGen Corporation, added: "With energy prices reaching new highs and concerns related to climate change in the forefront, interest in our technology among industrial companies continues to grow. These companies are drawn to the compelling economic proposition offered by our technology as they seek viable, environmentally-safe solutions for on-site distributed electric power generation. In addition, the use of clean technology continues to gain traction as a result of government incentives and increasingly stringent environmental standards. HydroGen is in a position to fully capitalize on these trends as we will continue to execute our strategic plan which will lead to commercialization in the coming year."

2007 Third Quarter Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2007, HydroGen's net loss was $3.5 million, or $(0.27) per basic and diluted share, based on the weighted average of 12,769,904 common shares outstanding. This compares with a net loss of $2.2 million, or $(0.17) per basic and diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2006, based on the weighted average of 12,769,904 common shares outstanding.

HydroGen's balance of cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments at September 30, 2007, totaled $12.2 million as compared to a balance totaling $24.1 million at December 31, 2006. Spending on research and development for fiscal 2007 third quarter amounted to $2.5 million, increasing more than 37% over the third quarter of 2006.
