Axis Technologies to Form Advisory Panel

LINCOLN, NE–(RushPRnews)–02/04/09 — Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (Other OTC:AXTG.PK – News), a green technology designer, manufacturer and marketer of a proprietary line of energy-saving and daylight harvesting electronic dimming ballasts for the commercial lighting industry, announced today that the company is assembling an Advisory Panel which will consist of from 8 to 20 experienced and well-connected experts from a variety of fields. The Advisory Panel will greatly assist Axis in bringing their ballasts before the decision makers at all government levels, and to the building management sectors. The Obama administration has already announced their intention to address energy efficiency in federal buildings.

“Axis Technologies is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Jerry Moore of Fairfax, Virginia, and Herman Rappaport of Los Angeles, California, and Craig Huffman, who lives in Tampa, Florida; as three of the first members of the Axis Advisory Panel, and they bring a wealth of valuable knowledge and experience to our team,” said Kip Hirschbach, CEO of Axis Technologies, Inc.

Dr. Jerry Moore, PhD, J. D., brings a broad base of scientific and business expertise that Axis will be able to capitalize upon immediately. He will assist in strategic planning, establishment of new business strategic alliances, new product introductions to complement the existing Axis products and the regulatory affairs from a manufacturing perspective. Dr. Moore’s industry contacts and broad base of scientific and business expertise will ensure that Axis’s product platform and new product introductions this year will be successful. Dr. Moore’s career spans 25 years with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in which he had a large role in the writing and implementation of many Laws and Acts which are instrumental in protecting our environment.

Herman Rappaport is President of Medical Wellness, Inc. and is responsible for the corporate management including business development for that company, a supplement development and marketing company especially concerned with providing preventative medical products for aging baby boomers. Mr. Rappaport has been a participant, in at the beginning of movements that have influenced the world, from atomic science at the start of the Manhattan Project at Columbia University and Oak Ridge, Tenn. to pioneering the expansion of McDonald’s Drive-Ins coast to coast, ranging from the development of air rights for urban development to advisor to three presidential administrations. He founded the PEG Foundation and co-hosted symposiums at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication on “Alternative Energy.” Us Weekly Magazine - only 99c an issue!

In addition, he was advisor to President Nixon on mass transportation, and to Presidents Reagan and Carter on foreign trade. Mr. Rappaport stated, after learning about the Axis ballast, “Axis has selected to bring to market a most timely product, one that improves energy efficiency. In fact, the present economic disorder can even be an advantage! I see that Axis Technologies has considerable potential.”

Craig A. Huffman is an attorney and is CEO of New Green Technologies, Inc. He is co-founder of predecessor companies, Internal Command (2001), and Internal Hydro International, Inc. (2004) of the parent Company, Renewable Energy Resources. He has been instrumental in all of Internal Hydro’s corporate operations, patent protection, and all aspects of corporate build up. Mr. Huffman is responsible for the purchase plan and expansion of the Company to include its New Green Technologies’ suite. He also acts as counsel to several other public companies, and has served on several boards. His combined business and legal expertise greatly aid the company in the areas of corporate governance and business ethics.

“Being in the Green Space as I am, I can certainly appreciate that Axis Technologies’ Daylight Harvesting ballast can contribute to Saving Energy,” stated Mr. Huffman.

About the Axis Ballast:

A standard “ballast” is an electronic component that regulates voltage in light fixtures. Axis Technologies Group, Inc. has developed an innovative new ballast with the aim of expanding daylight harvesting into mainstream lighting applications. The patented Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting Ballast is a new technology that transforms the ballast, a once standard lighting industry staple, into a dynamic energy-saving system that can reduce lighting energy costs by up to 70%. The Axis Ballast utilizes an individual photo sensor to automatically adjust the amount of electrical current flowing to the light fixture and then dims or increases lighting in conjunction with the amount of available sunlight. The Axis Ballast avoids “over-lit” conditions that increase energy costs by harvesting and utilizing free daylight from windows or skylights. As the amount of available daylight fluctuates, the Axis Ballast keeps lighting “tuned” to the desired level in a designated area.
