  • INVESTMENT STRATEGY Investment Strategy - Energy Efficiency Investment Program APEEC invests in energy efficiency projects by installing energy savings equipment to reduce operating costs, while seeking investment returns via payments from the energy savings achieved. ‘Paid from Savings’ Energy Efficiency Equity Facility The  Manager  deploys   Manager  funds  the   capital  into  the  energy   implementa4on  of  the   efficiency  projects   energy  efficiency  Projects COMPANY MANAGER BUILDING  /     Receives    a   Energy  savings  achieve   INDUSTRIAL  SITE percentage  of  the   income  streams  from   income  streams  from   Buildings the  B uilding  owner’s   energy  savings Capital is deployed by the Manager into energy efficiency projects and is paid from the measured and verified energy efficiencies (i.e. savings) achieved. The Company provides the development capital, and where necessary, arranges third-party debt financing for energy efficiency projects implemented by energy savings companies (ESCOs) and facilities managers. The investment program provides investors with the opportunity to capitalise on the inefficiency. 22 22

Investment • Strong cash generative characteristics with relatively short pay-back periods. Characteristics • Private equity-type returns at infrastructure-type levels of risk, i.e. risks that can be identified and mitigated. 23 23
