NEWTON, Mass., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ambient Corporation (NASDAQ:
AMBT), provider of a secure, flexible, and scalable smart grid platform, today
will host a visit from newly elected U.S. Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III
(MA-4), at its headquarters in Newton, MA. Congressman Kennedy will meet with
company leaders and employees to discuss the success of the Company's grid
communications and applications platform and grid modernization efforts.

Congressman Kennedy will tour the facility and will be briefed on the Ambient
Smart Grid^® platform, a combination of hardware and software, which helps
utilities manage operations critical to the delivery of secure, affordable,
and reliable power. The Congressman, who holds a degree in Management Science
and Engineering from Stanford University and serves on the House Committee on
Science, Space and Technology, will also observe a demonstration of
AmbientPQM™, Ambient's advanced power quality monitoring solution, which can
be used to detect power outages.

President and Chief Executive Officer John J. Joyce commented, "It is an honor
to have Congressman Kennedy visit our operation. We welcome the opportunity
to provide the Congressman and his staff with the data needed to substantiate
policies that promote investments for a better, more reliable and more
efficient grid." Thomas J. Dunleavy, a member of Ambient's Board of Advisors,
and a former Commissioner for the state of New York's Public Service
Commission, added, "Hurricane Sandy exposed the vulnerabilities of an outdated
electricity infrastructure. Now is the time to consider how to deploy
technologies that are the backbone of an intelligent grid."

Governments, utilities, and industry around the world are investigating, and
investing in, a variety of technologies and policies in order to upgrade their
electricity networks. Ambient's innovative platform provides a great deal of
flexibility. It allows a utility to deploy infrastructure, to support multiple
smart grid applications – in parallel, including demand response, distribution
automation, monitoring, and smart metering. It offers further flexibility by
supporting the simultaneous use of a variety of wired and wireless
communication technologies.

"Ambient is an example of the ground-breaking work being done in the 4^th
District," said Congressman Kennedy. "The historic storms this country has
faced over the past few years, coupled with the increasingly interconnected
nature of our cities and towns, means that a modernized electric grid is not a
luxury but a priority. I am especially impressed by Ambient's efforts to
prepare for the integration of renewable energy and low-carbon technologies –
a must in our 21^st-century economy."
