Houston – March 6, 2008 - Gary C. Evans, founder and CEO of GreenHunter
Energy, Inc., is  the Opening Keynote Speaker at the Houston Technology Center’s 4th Annual Energy Technology Venture Capital Conference located in Houston at 8:30 a.m. (CST).

Evans’ presentation will reflect an overview of the challenges and opportunities in the present state of the Alternative Energy sector and includes a look at current levels of domestic and international renewable energy production including wind, biodiesel 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 located 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 June 2005 to Cimarex Energy (“XEC”).

The Houston Technology Center’s 4th Annual Energy Technology Venture Capital Conference consists of two days of presentations and panels from more than 30 of the most promising emerging energy technology companies and an audience of venture capitalists, private equity, angel and corporate investors and related financial professionals.

GreenHunter Energy is focused on the renewable energy sectors of wind, solar, biofuels, and biomass power plants. Our assets consist of leases of real property for future development of wind energy projects located in Montana, New Mexico and California, a former waste oil and chemical refinery currently being converted to the nation’s largest biodiesel refinery located in Houston, Texas, and a biomass power plant located in El Centro, California.
