1 Swarm Energy Management ™ Energy Management Naturally™ Technology Introduction

2 S WARM E NERGY M ANAGEMENT H ISTORY Founded in 2005, 3 years of R&D, now 1000’s of SEM controllers deployed from California to Canada Patented Swarm Logic & LiveHive™ using wireless energy management Dynamic, responsive load control; a combined energy efficiency, demand management & demand response platform Optimized for HVAC loads in mid-sized commercial, institutional & industrial facilities REGEN allows facility operators to access utility incentives & DR program revenues

3 Automatically balancing electrical loads under a ‘business as usual’ environment – Reduces peaks while maintaining comfort (~15 -25% reduction) Peak Demand Management Peak Demand Management Reliably ensures loads only operate as much as needed – or not at all - outside of core. (~10 -30% reduction) Consumption Management Automates and simplifies accurate DR participation (including OpenADR), using swarm logic with comfort and peak management benefits. Demand Response Demand Response Identifies electrical loads running inefficiently, drawing too much /little power; Isolates performance issues and inefficiencies quickly. Continuous Commissioning S WARM E NERGY M ANAGEMENT DELIVERS VALUE TO FACILITY OPERATORS :

Two-way communication provides real-time load shed verification including live meter data feed Swarm Energy Management Web Portal Utility/ISO Customer Site Automatic Scheduling of DR EventsEasy Web Portal AccessREGEN Energy 24x7 Support CenterCustom Integration available for any dispatch service SEM Cloud Utility Servers OpenADR Dispatch Services Custom Dispatch

7 Customer Portal SEM Web 2.0 APIs A ZigBee network allows Controllers to “talk to each other” in a swarm. Each Controller makes a decision every 10 minutes. Controllers measure power readings every 30 seconds. Controllers are monitored and adjusted via SEM Web Portal. S WARM E NERGY M ANAGEMENT : E ASILY D EPLOYED EE & DR P LATFORM Swarm Energy Cloud A Gateway provides Internet communication without the need to access the site’s network. Power readings and decisions are uploaded every 5 minutes. HVAC LIGHTING ELECTRIC HEATING PUMPS Sites are easily connected to OpenADR and other dispatch services Utility / Dispatch Services An SEM power monitor can connect to a KYZ pulse meter, ensuring DR curtailment fulfills total building commitment

10 Swarm Energy Management Does Not Require – Any modifications to HVAC units, BAS/EMS – Access to your internet service or firewall – Any software installation or upgrades – Your employees or tenants to do anything differently N O E QUIPMENT OR BAS R ETROFIT R EQUIRED Swarm Energy Management Provides The same comfort level as before while lowering utility costs Web-based control of your HVAC systems Your facility manager with the ability to identify HVAC issues quickly 24x7 service and support, including issue alerts Swarm Energy Management allows you to interact as much or as little as you want

11 I NSTALLS IN 1-2 DAYS – U SING Y OUR C ONTRACTOR Step 1 Ship Swarm Energy Management equipment to your facility REGEN Energy will contact your HVAC contractor to install Step 2 Installation instructions are in each box REGEN Energy phone support while installer on roof Only requires minutes for each unit Step 3 HVAC contractor sends install report to REGEN Customer starts saving money

12 Buildings using Swarm Energy Management technology today experienced a payback within 2 years, many less than 18 months REGEN Energy will manage the utility incentive application process for you C OMPELLING ROI WITH S HORT T ERM P AYBACK Customer provides HVAC equipment list Customer provides Letter of Authorization to access meter data REGEN Energy provides proposal Customer signs incentive applications & agreement Controllers are installed and savings begin Utility verifies equipment installation & incentives are issued N EXT S TEPS
