  3. 3. Gaelectric History • Established in 2004 - privately owned, 60% by senior management, 40% by high net worth individuals. • Engaged in the development of renewable energy & energy storage projects in Irish/UK, EU and US markets. • 50 employees across offices in Ireland, Chicago and Montana. • Developing onshore wind projects across the island of Ireland. • Leading independent developer of onshore wind. • Applying proven technologies to develop energy storage projects which assist system operators regulate the grid and limit curtailment of wind generation • Multidisciplinary teams across, corporate finance, technology, geology, planning, energy markets and power systems. • Strong relationships with relevant stakeholders, governments and technology providers
  4. 4.

  6. 6. Gaelectric Business Model Gaelectric’s business model is to create shareholder value through early stage ownership of onshore wind and energy storage projects, bringing each development through planning, grid connection, financing and construction through to commissioning and beyond, while adding value at each stage. O&M will become a significant part of Gaelectric’s business in the forthcoming years.

  9. 9. Northern Ireland Portfolio – Expansion into O&M • We need to grow out O&M capabilities significantly in the next 2-3 years. The following areas have been identified as those with supply chain opportunities: • Civils contractor – Both during construction phases and ongoing during operational phase of the projects • Health & Safety consultants to advise on best practice • IT/Software – to assist in developing a suite of programs to analyse realtime turbine performance data • Remote sensoring technologies (LiDAR) to allow for performance measurement of spinning assets • Technical consultancy services to assist in assessing site validation/performance verification • Communications providers to ensure robust communications with the wind farms.

  12. 12. Section II Gaelectric Energy Storage
  13. 13. Gaelectric Energy Storage – CAES Larne Project • Energy storage concept using compressed air as the storage medium, safely stored circ. 600m below ground in excavated salt caverns (formed by solution mining), project is located 2.5km south of Larne, co. Antrim • 200MW Compression/268MW generation. Designed to allow a greater penetration of renewable energy technologies onto the all-Ireland electricity grid. • Planning to be submitted in Q2 2014 • Construction commence in Q4 2015 • Commissioning in 2017 • Total investment of £300m over 5 years • 300 full and part time jobs during construction, 30-50 permanent jobs in the operational phase. • Infrastructure will include: • 110kV substation • CAES plant main building (plant equipment supplier identified) • Balance of plant including cooling/noise abatement, fuel delivery & storage • Routing and burying of 2 x 500mm diameter pipes from the plant site to the sea. These pipes will remain a permanent fixture and will be in periodic use throughout the project lifetime.
