Seawater air-conditioning Introduction • Many businesses approximately 70% of total energy consumption is cooling. With the high electricity tariffs and the proximity to the ocean, Seawater air-conditioning seems a logical option for the Airport Complex. • An additional benefit, making it a potentially perfect fit for the CAH vision, is that Seawater air-conditioning has the potential to serve as a source for an Eco Park for high-end research, development and exploitation of aquaculture, agriculture and other spinoff activities like ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC). • CAH and Aqualectra agreed to jointly develop the respective SWAC projects (synergy).

Seawater air-conditioning Facts/value drivers • SWAC is basic infrastructure providing up to 70% of the total energy (30% will be electricity). • Reduce energy consumption for cooling with 13.5Million kWh (90%) per year. – Reduction of the dependence of fuel imports (thus foreign currency expenditure) – Save ca.3.0 Million liter fuel per year (ca. ANG 2.0-4.0 Million/year, depending on fuel type). – Save roughly 1.0-2.0MANG/year in cross subsidies by the other consumers to the preferential tariff. – Reduction of GHG emissions of approx. to 11.000 tons CO2 per year (Equivalent to 1,750 cars). – Eliminates use of refrigerants and other cooling tower chemicals.

Seawater air-conditioning Facts/value drivers • First hour clients benefits: – Long term low price guarantee – Long term reduction in customer’s cooling cost of up to 50%. – Stable and predictable cooling cost for 15 years, not subject to oil price volatility.

• Possibilities for research, development and exploitation of: – Eco Park (educational and touristic) – Aquaculture and Agriculture using the clean water from deep sea – Other spinoff activities like Desalination, Water Bottling and ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC). – Waste-to-Energy Plant to minimize footprint and produce electricity

Electric Vehicles Platform • Initiative and cooperation between CAH, Aqualectra and BPM • Goal: – Promote and Stimulate the introduction of EV’s on Curacao (Cars, Busses, Vans, Trucks etc.) – Identify hurdles and find solutions for the success of the introduction of EV’s on Curacao – Attract international EV related companies to use Curacao as initial Market (vehicles, grid applications, batteries etc.) – Platform for all Stakeholders!

• Start Platform in Q2 2012 – 40 - 50 EV’s project – Public Private partnership

• Join now:

Electric Vehicles Platform •Kick off Project EV Platform: • Mitsubishi i-MIEV pilot project – Real practical test of EV use – Study infrastructure • Charging locations • Effects and requirements on the grid • Car can be a back-up for homes

– Maintenance • Impact on maintenance business • Required education • Required technical and culture changes

– Initial cooperation: • Aqualectra and • Caribbean Motors

Electric Vehicles Platform Educational EV conversion program

• Conversion of conventional cars to EV • Educational program in cooperation with local polytechnics – Initial talks with RK MTS – Other possible participants : CIU, UNA, Feffek

• Use program to educate and prepare future work force for EV market • Stimulate new business

CAH Going Green the smart way! Solar PV project

• Goal: Minimum investment and maximum cost reduction • Reduce energy consumption (saving up to 50%) – Inverter air-conditioning – Energy efficient lighting

• Produce remaining energy need sustainably – Initially Solar (because of office location, the only option)

• Target for realization project Q2 2012

CAH Going Green the smart way! Employee and Office program

• Employee energy efficiency and renewable energy packages – Attractive terms

• Office efficiency improvement and Solar PV system project – Possibly a solar carport – Charging station for EV

Going Green the smart way let's do it together! Join us!
