5 Page 5 1.Introduction 2.Essent and Renewable Energy 3.History of sustainability within Essent 4.Way forward Agenda

6 Page 6 Essent is at the forefront of renewable energy Sustainability always high on Essent agenda; part of our mission and corporate core values Why are we active in renewable energy? Environmental and social responsibility, minimize environmental burden (e.g. CO2 emissions) Security of supply and fuel mix diversification Added value from profitable renewable energy activities Inventor of “Groene Stroom” (1995) and market leader in renewable energy in the Benelux Essent is a first mover, frontrunner and large investor in renewable energy (mainly bio energy and wind) Million kWh

7 Page 7 An increase from 15 now to 30% in 2010 of renewable electricity production is possible… fossil production 70% renewable 30% biomass 85% wind 15% but: financial support should be sound - moratorium, agro residues, sustainable bio-oil biomass market should develop towards a fully open commodity market (transparent, sustainable) time to improve is necessary

8 Page 8 Worldwide targets and availability World energy use: 480 EJ Long term scenario’s: 25% bio energy Greenpeace: 130 EJ – Shell: 350 EJ Potential sources WEA: 200 EJ – Utrecht University: 1000 EJ BUT: Greenhouse gases balance Competition with food, local energy production, medicines, building materials Socially acceptable Biodiversity Prosperity Welfare Environment Economics

10 Page 10 Essent's road to sustainability 1985: first wind park realised 1995: PNEM starts "Groene Stroom"-pilot (more expensive, restrictions to input) 2002: Bio-energy forum: A vision on socially acceptable bio energy (recommendations)recommendations 2002: start of Green Gold Label (example)example 2003: Essent and University of Utrecht start, supported by the Ministry of Economic Affaires IEA Task 40: Sustainable International Bio Energy Trade: secure demand and supply (website: 2005: Essent presents first report on Corporate Social Responsibility (MVO)MVO 2006: Essent participates in Energy Transition project: "Duurzame productie van biomassa" (commissie Cramer)commissie Cramer

11 Page 11 Conclusion Essent is a major player regarding renewable energy production and can deliver an important contribution to the Dutch R.E. target (~11 TWh in 2010) Essent is seriously concerned about sustainability of biomass fuels therefore: The role of Essent is to… … adopt the principles of Round Table of Sustainable Palm Oil … offer know how in public discussion … cooperate in developing sustainability criteria by government and NGO's … stop the use of biomass fuels once sustainability is poor and cannot be improved … use and further imrove existing sustainability tools Government should then…... remove the moratorium on subsidies for new large scale projects … increase the subsidies for co-firing agro residues and sustainable bio-oil

13 Page 13 Recommendations n Clear carbon balances needed n Emissions have to be lowered to the level of natural gas power plants n Cascade usage of biomass has priority n Chain responsibility also for bio energy n Sustainable pact for bio energy is needed for public support return

15 Page 15 Koffieschillen bieden nieuw perspectief voor Groene Stroom Essent deelnemer in uniek project Gambia return WNF en Essent verlengen samenwerkingscontract met vier jaar Het Wereld Natuur Fonds en energiebedrijf Essent hebben vandaag, 28 september, hun samenwerkingsovereenkomst met vier jaar verlengd. Dit betekent dat de organisaties ook de komende vier jaar hun gezamenlijke activiteiten op het gebied van duurzaam ondernemen en klimaatverandering voortzetten. Zo zullen WNF en Essent gezamenlijk op zoek gaan naar alternatieve, duu

16 Page 16 Minimum Demand 2007: Comply with international-legal obligations and local legislation, added with other performance indicators. Obliged reporting when performance indicators do not exist (yet) 2011: Comply with performance indicators and active protection. Performance indicators are being developed based on the reports from phase I. GHG-balance: Net emissions reduction related to fossil reference is at least 30% in 2007 en 50% in 2011 Biodiversity: no violation of valuable ecosystems Competition, prosperity: 2007 insights, 2011 no reduction allowed Welfare: from the beginning strict rules for labor conditions, human rights, social circumstances and integrity Environment: comply to international and EU regulation return

17 Page 17 Theses 1.To demand 100% of sustainability today closes the way to develop a global sustainable biomass market 3.The recent adjustments of the MEP-support for large scale bio-energy is an important barrier for the development of a sustainable biomass market 2.When there is no levelled playing field for bio energy in Europe, the Netherlands will not be able to reach the Kyoto goals
