THORNTON, Colo. -- July 23, 2013

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer of consumer and
off-grid products integrated with state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film
photovoltaic modules, announced today the company will debut the newest
additions to its EnerPlex Kickr^TM Series as well as introduce an exciting new
line of EnerPlex^TM products to be showcased at the Outdoor Retailer Summer
show in Salt Lake City July 31^st through August 3^rd, at Booth Number PV870.

Ascent Solar’s Manager of Branding & Marketing, Justin Jacobs said, "We look
forward to exhibiting the exciting new additions to our product lines and
giving distribution partners an opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at
our products before they become available for sale later in August .”

Small enough to be attached to a belt loop yet powerful enough to make sure
devices always have a charge, the Kickr line of personal solar chargers is
uniquely enabled by the rugged, lightweight and flexible form factor of
Ascent's CIGS solar cells. Kickrs are perfect for consumers who desire a
robust and rugged charging solution when off the grid. Unlike chargers
produced using traditional mono-crystalline solar which is heavy, fragile and
cumbersome, the Kickr line is light, user-friendly and built to withstand even
the harshest conditions.

Mr. Jacobs also added, “Our presence at Outdoor Retailer also includes an
invitation to product designers to learn about how our unique, lightweight,
flexible solar technology can be integrated into a wide variety of innovative
consumer and specialty outdoor applications and we look forward to helping
them innovate.”
