Clean Power Capital Advances Innovative Clean Technology Companies and Renewable Projects to

Investment Professionals Focus on Providing Strategic and Financial Advisory for Well-structured Financing by
De-risking and Boosting Innovative Companies and Projects

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (BUSINESS WIRE) June 24, 2014: CLEAN POWER CAPITAL (CPC) services clients in the accelerating clean
technology and renewables markets across a wide array of sub-sectors, from waste-to-value, energy efficiency and storage, smart
grid, water and alternative fuels, to renewable geothermal, hydro, solar and wind energy, among others. The latest report by the
International Energy Agency (IEA) finds that worldwide US$44 trillion in investment will be needed to secure a clean-energy future
by 2050.

“Securing financing from or selling renewable projects to sophisticated investors requires businesses to meet stringent financing
and operational benchmarks. Project investors also focus on corporate financial health throughout the funding cycle of a project,”
says CPC’s Managing Partner Alexander von Welczeck. “Most Wall Street firms have failed to successfully combine clean
technology corporate investment banking services with renewable project financing capabilities. On Wall Street, corporate and
project finance teams operate in competitive business units leaving clients with a mono to no solution for mostly multi-faceted
issues. Once projects are operational and cash-flowing, further key strategic decisions, such as balance sheet optimization,
leveraging capitalization and growth of enterprise value, remain.”

“Clean Power Capital is purposely structured to help clients address challenges throughout their lifecycles. We advise with a focus
on balancing certainty of financing and cost of capital in the early stages of a company or project’s lifecycle,” says CPC managing
Director Jim Martin. “Determining the best path to liquidity or return on investment once a project is in service and operational is
critical. Clean Power Capital can help minimize critical, and sometimes expensive, financing mistakes while helping clients
anticipate challenges that may lie ahead. We believe our holistic approach provides our clients with the greatest chance of success
in their early stages of building a clean technology corporation and/or renewable project.”


CLEAN POWER CAPITAL is a private investment bank committed to financing and advising clean technology companies and
renewable energy projects. The firm prides itself on providing well-structured corporate and project financing by accessing the
international finance markets to ensure the most competitive and strategic sources for debt, equity and tax equity investment.

million. An experienced senior banking team has provided lending services and participated in funding technology businesses and
