Triton Renewable Energy – local company with environmental and development experience REH – international renewable energy company involved in wave, wind, solar, land-fill and hydro power

Wave Energy Facts

“2TW of energy, the equivalent of twice the world’s electricity production, could be harvested from the world’s oceans on a continuous basis.”
World Energy Council

Wave energy is more concentrated than wind or solar energy p predictable p providing reliable p g power Wave patterns are p Wave energy projects do not compete for limited land resources

Bermuda - Ideal for Wave Power
Bermuda i d B d is dependent on petroleum d t t l imports - high electricity rates, emissions and security of supply concerns A power demand growth of 1 – 2 MW p.a. has been forecast The Island Th I l d must manage intense t i t competition for limited land resources g There is an excellent wave regime close to shore and limited tidal range Bermuda’s fragile ecosystem underpins the economy

Commercialisation of CETO
Three, fully instrumented, CETO II units are currently installed off Perth, Australia CETO III will be a scaled up version of CETO II, II
including optimization resulting from CETO II instrumentation analysis, and addressing cfd and load differentials associated with larger unit

Expected CETO III deployment in Northern hemisphere in 2010
CETO III nameplate capacity of 180kW CETO III manufacturer selected

Wave Project Parameters
Demonstration project during 2010 Commercial wave energy power project in time to meet 2012 power demand i d d increase 1 – 2MW p.a. phased approach to match the Bermudian demand growth To produce at least 20 MW of Bermuda’s national energy demand (peak load of 120 MW) Eventual displacement of existing fossil fuel generation

Progress to Date
Triton has been researching and planning the introduction of ocean energy to Bermuda for over 7 years The Renewable Energy Bermuda team has been collaborating on the CETO project for over one year j tf Preliminary stakeholder consultation has occurred with government, NGO s, NGO’s focus groups and the public Offshore and onshore site selection is advanced Preliminary discussions with BLDC regarding an onshore lease have been held gy part Renewable Energy Bermuda has been selected as p of BELCO’s recent SOI for 2MW demonstration plant

Bermudian Stakeholders
A key part of the development of this project is the engagement of local stakeholders to ensure that there is minimal environmental, social and cultural impact, with maximum benefit to the wider community.

Stakeholder Government of Bermuda

Key consideration Regulatory issues and permitting, maritime safety, access restrictions, visibility and warnings, management , y g , g of Bermuda’s carbon footprint, promoting Bermuda on the global stage Protection of key industries including tourism and fishing, the environment, maritime heritage and special interests. Affordable, reliable electricity supply at predictable prices Reliable, R li bl stable supply compatible with the grid bl l ibl ih h id To facilitate the above while enhancing company’s reputation and providing acceptable financial returns to shareholders
