Exhibiting Conductus Superconducting Wire during Conference Poster Session

AUSTIN, Texas, May 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superconductor Technologies
Inc. (Nasdaq:SCON) ("STI"), a world leader in the development and production
of high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials and associated
technologies, will exhibit its Conductus^® superconducting wire at the
Superconductivity for Energy (S4E) conference being held May 15^th-19^th in
Paestum, Italy. STI will present a poster on Low-Cost 2G HTS Coated Conductors
Scale-Up at STI during the conference poster session
Friday, May 16^th at 5:20 p.m. local time.

The S4E conference brings together experts in the field of high power
applications of superconductors, high field magnet technology, power devices
(motors, superconducting magnetic energy storage, fault current limiters) and
high current applications. Topics will cover how superconducting can be used
in various power grid applications including power generation, transmission
and distribution, storage applications, transformers and fault current
limiters. Presentations will address the potential of superconducting
solutions to relieve many stranded grid assets and provide an efficient,
adaptive mesh topology that is well suited for the future Smart Grid.

"We will be meeting with customers and other thought leaders at S4E as they
focus on the success of superconducting devices that will modernize the
electric power industry," said Adam Shelton, STI's VP of Marketing and Product
Line Management. "STI's Conductus wire is a high current carrying conductor
that provides dramatic performance improvements, higher power density, smaller
size, high efficiency and significant cost benefits over traditional copper
wire. We look forward to increasing awareness of Conductus as an attractive
alternative for improving the value proposition of superconducting electrical
