FlexEnergy:  FlexEnergy Capturing the Low Btu Gas Market Available to No One Else! www.flexenergy.com Edan Prabhu, Founder Tom Smith, CEO FlexEnergy:  FlexEnergy The Flex-Microturbine (“Flex”) is the only ultra-low Btu power plant that can use fuel with a concentration level as low as 15Btu/scf - pipeline gas is 1,000 Btu/scf Low Btu gas is a costly problem for industry - the Flex turns this into a revenue opportunity Reduces NOx and carbon footprint - NOx below .1 ppm or one tenth of any other system Low Btu fuel is a multi-billion dollar untapped market opportunity Slide3:  The Flex-Microturbine at the DCOR oilfield near Santa Barbara, running on 15-42 Btu gas Slide4:  3 1 2 6 5 Air inlet Gen Recuperator Flex-Microturbine Process Flow 4 Compressor Turbine Features: No fuel compressor Catalytic combustor; virtually no NOx Uses 15-3,000 Btu gas Catalytic Combustor (flameless) Slide5:  Low-grade methane/VOC destruction Existing flares and thermal oxidizers Value proposition is the largest; it is driven by displacement of natural gas Built-in redundancy facilitates early adopters New VOC abatement applications Low Btu gas to electricity markets (no competition) Landfill gas Shut-in natural gas wells Coal mines Coal-bed methane Markets for FlexEnergy Market Segment Size ($million):  Market Segment Size ($million) Flare Gas (DOE Data) California $5 Texas $130 United States $460 Global (10x US) $4,600 Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery in California ChevronTexaco Kern River Field $8 Total Bakersfield Production Region $41 Existing Thermal Oxidizer Displacement US (10% of 10,000 installed base) $260 Global (5x US) $1,300 Low Grade Methane/VOC Destruction $6,000 Low Btu Gas to Electricity $ Multi-billion Landfill California $340 United States (5x Cal.) $1,700 Global (5x US) $8,500 Shut-in gas well, coal mines, coal-bed methane $ Multi-billion Markets for FlexEnergy Market Segment Size ($million):  Market Segment Size ($million) Flare Gas (DOE Data) California $5 Texas $130 United States $460 Global (10x US) $4,600 Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery in California ChevronTexaco Kern River Field $8 Total Bakersfield Production Region $41 Existing Thermal Oxidizer Displacement US (10% of 10,000 installed base) $260 Global (5x US) $1,300 Low Grade Methane/VOC Destruction $6,000 Low Btu Gas to Electricity $ Multi-billion Landfill California $340 United States (5x Cal.) $1,700 Global (5x US) $8,500 Shut-in gas well, coal mines, coal-bed methane $ Multi-billion Early Market Penetration Flex-Thermal Oxidizer Comparison:  Flex-Thermal Oxidizer Comparison * Makes CARB 2007 Certification a Slam Dunk! Economics of First Thermal Oxidizer Customer Application:  Economics of First Thermal Oxidizer Customer Application Each year, three Flex-Microturbines will: Save 73 MM cubic feet of natural gas $438,000 Generate 528,000 KWh $31,656 Reduce 4,000 tons of CO2 $38,730 Reduce 1.4 tons of NOx $2,788 Total Benefit $511,054 Cost of Flex-Microturbines $300,000 Payback period is 7 months! Slide10:  Years Since Inception of Landfill 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 110 Percent Methane 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 Methane Concentration of Landfill Gas Over Time Landfill Closed Traditional Engines can use this gas Flex-Microturbine Opportunity The shaded green area is landfill gas that only the Flex-Microturbine can use to generate electricity. 1.5% Methane In Summary:  In Summary Breakthrough technology that uses existing technology components Units in the field today Cost-effective today for early market segment Large potential market with renewable fuels Advances distributed energy Stellar greenhouse gas and emissions play The Flex value proposition increases as carbon levies rise Its time has come!
