NASDAQ Assigns Company New Stock Symbol (NENE) Effective January 14, 2009 to
Finalize the Name Change
WASHINGTON--(Business Wire)--
Octillion Corp. (OTCBB: OCTL) announced today that it has changed its name to
New Energy Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: NENE). The name change will become
effective on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board at the opening of trading on
Wednesday, January 14, 2009. 

"After careful consideration, in order to more clearly represent the true nature
of our business, I am pleased to announce that Octillion Corp. has a new name,
New Energy Technologies, Inc." stated Meetesh V. Patel, Esq., President and CEO
of New Energy Technologies, Inc. 

In recent weeks, New Energy Technologies, Inc. has accelerated its engineering
efforts and unveiled early details of its designed energy capture systems. The
Company has filed initial patents with the United States Patent and Trademark
Office related to its first generation devices that are capable of generating
electricity by harvesting wasted energy from vehicles in motion (view New Energy
Technologies` December 16, 2008 press release, unveiling key features of the
Company`s energy capture system and related patent filings:
http://www.octillioncorp.com/OCTL_20081216.html). Engineers anticipate that
these devices are manufacturable, reliable, and resistant to damage from
vehicles, road debris or weather. Among key feature considerations of the
systems are the important ability to: 

• Adapt to the unique characteristics of different vehicles to optimize the
amount of energy captured; 

• Reduce or avoid potentially undesirable effects on safety, comfort of vehicle
occupants, and the stability of cargo; 

• Adaptively monitor or regulate the speed or acceleration (or deceleration) of

Engineers envision that wasted kinetic energy from the movement of an estimated
6,000,000 trucks and 250,000,000 cars on America`s roadways could serve as a
potentially viable source for generating valuable electricity, the fastest
growing form of end-use energy in the world. 

America is the world`s largest consumer of electricity, according to the U.S.
Energy Information Administration, with nearly 70% of the nation`s electricity
generated by coal and natural gas. The environmental impact and rising costs of
these non-renewable fuels, along with the potential doubling of global
electricity consumption in the coming years, clearly illustrate the urgent need
for more creative, sustainable methods for generating electrical power. 

In addition to its energy capture devices, New Energy Technologies, Inc. is also
working towards developing photovoltaic technologies that would adapt home and
office glass windows, skylights, and building facades into products capable of
generating electricity from solar energy without losing significant transparency
or requiring major changes in manufacturing infrastructure. 

About New Energy Technologies, Inc.

New Energy Technologies, Inc., together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, is a
developer of next generation alternative and renewable energy technologies. 

Among our activities is the development of new technologies which can: (1)
Harness the kinetic energy of vehicles to generate electricity; and (2) Adapt
home and office glass windows, skylights, and building facades into products
capable of generating electricity from solar energy without losing significant
transparency or requiring major changes in manufacturing infrastructure.
