2 EDP … From a local electricity incumbent to a global energy player with a strong presence in Europe, Brazil and considerable investments in USA 2 Brazil 16% of EBITDA Presence since 1996 Power generation: 2.2 GW (from which 1.8GW is hydro) 2 electricity distribution concessions Portugal 41% of EBITDA (Exc. Wind) Privatization in 1997 (IPO) Single electricity distributor Spain 17% of EBITDA (Excl. Wind) Presence since 2001 # 2 in gas distribution Wind Power 26% of EBITDA IPO in Jun‐08 Wind Power: 8.0 GW Key Figures: Top World level Electric Sector in Dow Jones Sustainability Index #3 World wind energy company #1 Portuguese industrial group EBITDA 2013: Portugal 44% Other 56% Key Figures: Top World level Electric Sector in Dow Jones Sustainability Index #3 World wind energy company #1 Portuguese industrial group EBITDA 2013: Portugal 44% Other 56%

3 Energy efficiency Smart grids Renewable Energy Electric Mobility Smarter grids are the key to meet the new challenges faced by DSOs, in a world moving towards a decarbonised economy 3

4 SubstationStation EB ProductionTransmission HV network Distribution Network Secondary Substation MV networkLV network Retailer/ Consumer WANHANLAN Energy efficiency Renewable Energy Electric Mobility Central Systems (commercial & technical) Distribution Transformer Controller (DTC) EDP Box (EB) The main elements in the InovGrid architecture cover the LV network and provide access to commercial & technical data 4

5 InovCity showroom Energy efficiency case studies EV charging points Enhanced microgeneration integration New products and services DTC installed in all secondary substations New public lighting solutions Évora Inovcity main characteristics 5 Évora InovCity has the scale, the network diversity, the costumers and the context that enable a deep evaluation of the Inovgrid solution. 30k EDP Boxes and 340 DTCs were installed on the municipality, serving 50k inhabitants Évora has been selected as the living lab for the Inovgrid project: the InovCity

6 6 InovCity website InovCity Showroom in City Centre Client research and Social studies Energy Bus in Évora Presence in the local press Mailing and information to Évora Clients Test of new products and services In-home displays in selected clients Smart Grids conferences and meetings in Évora Newsletter to all energy professionals in Évora region Collaboration with Évora University Involvement of the Town Hall and other local public authorities The project developed a strong involvement of local stakeholders and population

7 7 Distribution System Operator CAPEX OPEX DSO Custom. Society Net Value CostsBenefits Illustrative Cost-Benefits Analysis The business case is clearly positive for InovGrid, but there is an unbalanced distribution of costs and benefits Energy Efficiency 3.9% energy reduction InovCity C&T Losses Reduction expected between 2% and 4% Field Operations Large majority will be done remotely Main quantified benefits

8 EDP Distribuição, is deploying the concept in other locations, to consolidate knowledge and test different technologies InovGrid deployment schedule 30k EBs (Évora InovCity) +150k EBs (6 new locations) +200k EBs (keep expansion) 6M EBs (full rollout) Rollout date tbd Government decision pending Key drivers: New technologies (PLC PRIME, RF Mesh); Different social and environmental characteristics; Different grid conditions; New smart grids applications; Increasing business process integration... Key drivers: New technologies (PLC PRIME, RF Mesh); Different social and environmental characteristics; Different grid conditions; New smart grids applications; Increasing business process integration...

9 Conclusions EDP Distribuição focus on value creation in customer centric services and involving local stakeholders active participation developing a future-proof solution in a project commercially tested, enabling innovative smart services, as demonstrated in Évora – the 1 st Iberian InovCity strongly aligned with EDP group strategy aiming at Europe’s goals involved in European Initiatives, Institutions and Projects focused on knowledge sharing and dissemination
