2 © 2011 REGEN Energy Inc Reduces monthly peak demand charges by automatically balancing large electrical loads Demand Management Ensures loads only operate as much as required – and do not run off-hours Scheduling Simplifies participation in utility Demand Response programs Demand Response Identifies electrical loads running inefficiently, drawing either too much or too little power to function properly Continuous Commissioning EnviroGrid’s reduces energy usage and costs for a wide span of buildings

Power readings and controller decisions are uploaded to the Server every 5 minutes. HVAC

7 © 2011 REGEN Energy Inc The EnviroGrid Portal provides easy, simple access to a broad range of users Web-based portal No software installation required Secure Control Site-level permissions Allow view only or manager roles Scheduling Ability to group loads per zone Schedule load duty cycles for recurring or one-time events Analytics View real-time or historical load profiles, even across portfolios of sites Can export as spreadsheets

8 © 2011 REGEN Energy Inc EnviroGrid provides benefits for a wide span of facilities Sample Types of Facility Retail / Big-box Office Buildings Call Centers Theaters Convention Centers Banquet Halls Recreation Centers Libraries School “Portable” Classrooms Distribution Centers Warehouses Food Processing Plants Light Industrial Facilities Preferred Deployments Packaged HVAC units, esp. rooftop installations Ideally +10 tons of cooling each Resistive heating banks Works with or without a Building Automation System Preferred Site Characteristics Low, wide buildings; open spaces are ideal Ideally 50,000 sq ft.+ Warmer climates have greater savings potential Single tenant simplifies attribution of benefits Serviced by a utility with energy efficiency incentives Managed as part of a portfolio of sites Unoccupied periods throughout the week
