Information memorandum 02 03 2012

  1. 1. CARE ELECTRIC ENERGIA LTDA. - SMALL HYDRO-ELECTRIC PLANTS 1 CARE – Clean and Renewable Energy Technological innovation in electric energy generation Information Report March 2, 2012 Av. Olegário Maciel 414, sl 202, Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ 22.621-200, Brazil Tels: (55-21) 2410-3108 / 9829-6386 / 2491-7062 frank@careelectric.com.br
  2. 2. Important Notice 2The purpose of this material is to provide information on thehydro-electric plant, developed by Care Electric Energia Ltda.This information shall be held confidential, and is not to be lent,given or used by any party other than the original recipient.SummaryCare Electric Energia Ltda., is a Brazilian company whose mainactivity is to develop and market innovative and ecologicalsolutions for energy sources and associated fields. The companyhas developed and owns patents to environmental friendlytechnologies that are economic and profitable source of energy.In a world where companies are expected to develop ever moreefficient, clean and sustainable technologies, CARE ELECTRIC hasmade it its prime objective to strive for such goals.In the following pages a description of the CARE technology willbe shown to potential interested parties. Av. Olegário Maciel 414, sl 202, Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ 22.621-200, Brazil Tels: (55-21) 2410-3108 / 9829-6386 / 2491-7062 frank@careelectric.com.br
  3. 3. CARE UnitA functioning Care facility, anchored on both banks of a river, with 3water flowing while energy is being generated. Depending on thecharacteristics of the river more units can be placed downstreamallowing for greater energy generation capacity.CARE ELECRTIC unit adapted for a typical river environment. TheCARE concept envisions the adaptability of the solution todifferent situations. Av. Olegário Maciel 414, sl 202, Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ 22.621-200, Brazil Tels: (55-21) 2410-3108 / 9829-6386 / 2491-7062 frank@careelectric.com.br
  4. 4. Creativity and InnovationCARE’s innovative solutions to can be ideal for rural communities,farms, factories, mining sites, oil extraction, as well as other small 4or large commercial activities, or just for the environmentalconcerned individuals bring a series of advantages, some of whichare listed below:  no need to divert the river or water flow or flood any land with considerable savings  it is based on the conception on modulus which allow for different installation combinations  the installed capacity depends on the local river conditions and the water flow measured in m³ / s  units can be installed close to consumption point in out of the way villages and sites or it can be connected to energy power grids  no need for heavy construction, with foundations inserted into the river bed and secured on both banksCARE’s experimental unit, has undergone rigorous testingconducted by experts in this area at the prestigious CEFET-MG,(University of Minas Gerais Electric Engineering Department)which were very impressed with its technological innovations andease to assemble. The modular concept allows it to be adapted tovarious sites, and among its prime advantages is that of a very lowinstallation cost. Av. Olegário Maciel 414, sl 202, Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ 22.621-200, Brazil Tels: (55-21) 2410-3108 / 9829-6386 / 2491-7062 frank@careelectric.com.br
  5. 5. TechnologyThe incomparable environmental friendly aspects create a niche 5of its own. Care strives to continually search for efficient and cleanenergies, having invested and researched what has become trulyviable option. The CEFET MG team stated, when comparing Care’stechnology with solar energy as “a world encompassing revolutionin the generation of electric energy.”A unique aspect of Care’s technology is in regard to the ratio ofinstalled capacity vis-à-vis energy actually generated installedcapacity and generated energy. This is an aspect usuallyoverlooked when searching for energy sources. CARE has takenthis concept to another level, allowing the user of its technologythe benefit of achieving higher efficiency in energy yields.Normally, there is a 55% correlation between these two conceptswhen analyzing hydro-electric power, and Care’s is so muchhigher, yielding a 90% correlation. The efficiency of energyharvested and the continuous use of the unit throughout the yearwill undoubtedly bring enormous savings as well as the potentialto sell excess energy needs to third parties, allowing for theamortization of the project in a reduced time frame.

  6. 6. On the operational aspect of Care’s hydroelectric plant has sometruly measurable points, which sets it apart, namely: 6  The units are controlled and operated by satellite eliminating the necessity of an on the site staff.  The time between design, fabrication, assembly and startup of a facility, depending on the desired power is close to 12 months. This time will be even shorter with the optimization of the manufacturing process which implies the manufacture of units when assembly line production is developed.  The installation does not flood any land, therefore expropriation and relocation of river side residents and the cost implicit in saving or reallocating flora and fauna and agricultural activities does not exist.  The flow of the river and its bed remains unchanged.  The CARE ELECTRIC technology does not require the use of grids or fences, so it does not retain the material in constant motion of the river bed which results in the ecological protection down river. This also avoids shut down time for cleaning.  More than one unit can be installed along the same river, increasing the energy potential of the region as well making more economical the connection to a distribution net.

  7. 7. Economic Annual Comparison between 3 mW - PCH vs. CARE PCH CARE 1 Installation Capacity in mW 25074 25074 Percentage Effective Generated Energy 55% 95% 7 Effective Generated Energy in mW 13.790,70 23.820,30 Price of mW in R$ in MG (Brasil) 159,90 159,90 Revenue for sale of energy 2.205.132,93 3.808.865,97 1Note: 3 units continuously working for 24 hours for 350 days a yearObs: The estimated cost of a 1 mW unit is of R$ 5.5 million.CARE’s technology has outstanding features, and complies withtoday’s needs and concerns. When compared with SmallHydroelectric Plants (PCH in Brazil), CARE’s output is far greater,since the Installed Capacity is so close to Effective GeneratedEnergy, thus it outperforms any other hydro-electric generatingtechnology.This technology is based on the idea that development, well-beingand the pursuit of a better life are not incompatible with caringfor the environment and preserving it.Environmentally FriendlySafe and easy passage for migrating fish Av.
