Park was bought in Q2 2011, 2012 first full year of operation (t2)

Non-recourse project financing will be serviced and paid-off by the park

  • As the loan is paid-off during the FIT-period, parks are very profitable in the "golden end"

Lifetime assumptions of PV parks differ nowadays substantially from IFRS accounting standards

Historical accounting rules

According to all GAAP/IFRS

it is mandatory to indicate a useful life for an asset that is capitalized. Due to the lack of historical data (utility-scale plants have been built from 2005 onwards)

accountants and investors have focused on the duration of the subsidy schemes (usually 20 years) and/or of the land leases

(usually 25 to 30 years) to estimate the useful life.

Todays business reality

As the technology has proven to be mature, investors are increasingly extending their

valuation period (up to 50 years) and land lease agreements are currently being renegotiated

or extended to allow a longer operation of the plants.

30 years can be taken for granted:

Performance warranties of 30 years for new modules is currently a "de facto" industry standard

as confirmed by the extracts from official data sheets on the following pages

30 years ++ can be assumed due to following reasons: *)

Consistently dropping technology costs will allow operators to either . . .

  • Ongoing optimizations of the portfolio at very low replacement costs or
  • Increase the power of the plants once the subsidy schemes are faded out

There is also an increasing portion of already acquired land as well as strategic ambitions

to acquire the land on which solar plants are operating or are being developed.

Encavis' land leases/acquisitions allow long useful life / Extension . . .

Demand for power from renewables from two strong players: public & private sector

Public Sector: Goal to limit global warming

  • COP 21 Paris: 196 countries united to limit global warming below 2°C
  • Europe 20-20-20 targets
  • China: largest installed renewables fleets
  • Denuclearization in Germany and Japan
  • Creation of low-carb economies

Demand via FIT-schemes and competitive auctions

Private sector: Sustainability goals and long-term supply security

> Private companies create global initiatives in order to take action on climate change.

  • Multinational companies such as Google, Facebook and Microsoft go ahead with ambitious targets
  • 100% renewable targets help to create a positive brand awareness
  • Furthermore, direct Power Purchase Agreements between companies and power producers from renewable energy resources offer long-term supply at fixed rates

Demand via PPAs and purchase of green certificates

Solar PV utility scale with comparably low Levelized Costs Of Energy (LCOE) Production

Encavis'

focus

The cost of energy production from conventional sources

is set to increase, as prices for CO2 emissions in the EU rise with the application of taxes and certificates

(2nd phase of the EU CO2 certificate trading scheme and additional national legislations)

Securing the

cost advantage for renewable energy in the long term.

Source: CM-CIC Research on "Renewable Energies" covering Albioma, Encavis and Voltalia, June 5th, 2020

44

LCOE/Levelized Costs Of Energy Production continue to fall for PV/solar and wind power technologies

Today, plant construction costs (including components and materials)

in utility scale (10 MW and above) in Europe vary between EUR 0.4m/

MWp and EUR 0.475 m/MWp, including 30 years warranty on key

components such as modules. Common expectations are further decreases in the near, mid and long term.

Current O&M prices are at around 3.5 to 7 EUR/KW according to the age and size of the plant. The termination of old contracts and renegotiation of the terms will lead to a substantial reduction in the average O&M expenditures.

We expect additional reduction in O&M costs due to consolidation in the O&M market and increase of professionalization in the market.

Encavis' strategic move: Participation in Stern Energy (O&M company with 1+GW under management) and standardization of all O&M activities.

Strong decline in LCOE/Levelized Costs Of Energy Production for PV/solar is mainly driven by PV module prices

Price development for PV modules (USD real 2,000/Wp)

This cost decrease applies to park maintenance,

lease payments and interest rates as well.

46

Electricity price fluctuations due to the Merit Order Effect

In the very conservative assumption of an energy only market, thus a market in which only the produced power is compensated, without any compensation for the mere readiness for power production (capacity market), the power price would be determined by the "merit order" - the sequence in which power stations contribute power to the market, with the cheapest offer made by the power station with the smallest operating costs setting the starting point - and not by the LCOE.

While it is true that renewables lower the entrance price due to their low operating costs and push more expensive conventional producers down the merit order

(see chart to the left), it is also true that the price for the energy is set by the plant with the highest operating cost that is still necessary to be activated in order to meet the demand.

Forecast 3

  • All major forecasters of energy prices do see positive development of energy prices in the future.
  • Main drivers for energy prices
    are: CO2 certificate prices, capacity additions of renewables acompanied with cut down of capacities of conventional power plants.
  • Even the most conservative forecaster (#3) sees energy market prices which are fairly above current (and, obviously, future) LCOEs enabeling additional investments into renewables.

48

ENCAVIS manages uncertainties in power demand, power supply and corresponding pricing risks

Sophisticated Energy risk management as key value leaver short to mid term:

  • Traded products in liquid markets (1-5 years ahead)
  • PPAs for non-liquid markets (5 years ++)
  • Matching inherent energy risks by portfolio optimization

European goal for CO2 free power production will either lead to . . .

  • a CO2 price regime as part of power prices in order to stimulate investments in Renewable Energy
  • the introduction of capacity markets for Renewable Energy (REE) in order to allow for new build
  • a self-regulatedenergy only market where power prices incentivize enough new build capacities in REE

Long-term price curves*) observation as well as introduction of proprietary energy pricing model

  • Captured prices for solar and wind (accounting for the expected cannibalization effect)
  • Introduction of storage as appropriate
