Coreworx Solution Strengthened for All Capital Projects

Acorn Energy's Subsidiary Coreworx Announces Expansion into Nuclear Offering

Montchanin, DE (May 20, 2009) - John Moore, CEO of Acorn Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACFN) will preside over the NASDAQ stock market closing bell to commemorate Coreworx's steps towards expanding its nuclear power industry solution.

Coreworx is already known as the leading software used by Owner/Operators, EPCs and Contractors for managing some of the world's largest capital projects and this major investment for the very demanding nuclear power industry will further strengthen its leadership position.

"Acorn's Board of Directors has agreed to make an additional investment in order to accelerate Coreworx's nuclear initiative. The opportunity to provide collaboration tools for the owner operators, engineering and procurement providers, contractors, supply chain and regulators is a billion dollar opportunity. About 20% of the United States' energy is from nuclear power and the international community is making major investments in the space." said John Moore, CEO of Acorn Energy. "Over the past 40 years there has been a freeze on the construction of new nuclear plants but in the coming years North America will need to extend the licenses for 110 existing nuclear plants as well as build 30 to 40 new nuclear plants. With recent public interest in carbon free power, renewing our existing plants and building more nuclear has become an inevitable requirement. When the existing fleet of plants were originally built the IT tools available were rudimentary. Coreworx can help enable the nuclear renaissance by providing proven tools for these companies to manage their projects on time, on budget and minimize risks."

According to the World Nuclear Association's website, "the increasing energy demand, aging power infrastructure, concerns over climate change and dependence on overseas supplies of fossil fuels are coinciding to make a stronger case for nuclear." Also, "several studies show that nuclear energy is the most cost-effective of the available base-load technologies. In addition, as carbon emission reductions are encouraged through various forms of government incentives and trading schemes, the economic benefits of nuclear power will increase further."

"Coreworx is already known as the leading software used by Owner/Operators for managing some of the worlds largest infrastructure projects and the nuclear power industry presents a perfect opportunity to share project information control best practices gained from our client successes in major capital projects for oil & gas, power and mining," said Ray Simonson, CEO of Coreworx. "The Nuclear industry has some of the most stringent requirements for full life cycle auditability, security, contract and interface management, as well as industry-specific work processes and project intelligence capabilities in support of quality assurance programs. Coreworx is working closely with its existing Nuclear Owner/Operator and EPC clients and also intends to make many of these enhancements  available to those managing demanding projects in the oil and gas, power and mining sectors too. In addition, this presents a perfect opportunity to share project information control best practices gained from our client successes in major capital projects for oil & gas, power and mining.  Acorn Energy's increased investment will accelerate Coreworx's latest Nuclear release specifically designed for the needs of the Nuclear industry."
