Maxwell Technologies' chief technical officer will outline how the ultracapacitor industry can realize its full potential in the automotive world at the Advanced Energy Solutions Conference, October 23-25, 2012 in San Diego, California.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (October 23, 2012) – Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) announced today the company will give a presentation on adoption of ultracapacitor technology by the automotive industry at the Advanced Energy Solutions Conference (AES) being held October 23-25 in San Diego, California. Michael Everett, vice president of Advanced Power/Energy Development and chief technical officer for Maxwell Technologies, will present "the reasons why the automotive market has been slow to adopt ultracapacitors" on Wednesday, October 24, at 10 a.m. during Session 6 in the main conference room of the San Diego Hilton.

"The presentation takes a look, with a unique slant and somewhat lighthearted perspective, at what the ultracapacitor industry as a whole needs to do to penetrate the market effectively, encompassing the supply chain participants all the way through distributor organizations," said Everett. "If the ultracapacitor industry aims to realize full potential in the automotive world, the entire industry needs to participate in enabling and unlocking that potential."

Michael Everett joined Maxwell in August 2002, assuming responsibility for Technology Systems, including product assurance and multiple systems engineering groups. In December 2005, he was appointed Chief Technical Officer. Before joining Maxwell, Everett spent seven years overseeing product development for 3D Systems Inc., a California-based technology company that designs and manufactures three-dimensional imaging systems. Over a 16-year engineering career, Everett has been responsible for all levels of new product development, primarily focused on systems engineering.
