Wyckoff Heights Medical Center Embraces Green, Procures 100% Renewable Power through World Energy Solutions

Competitive Auctions Deliver Sustainability and Savings to New York Hospital

Brooklyn, NY and Worcester, MA – March 12, 2013 – World Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: XWES), a leading energy management services firm, today announced it has teamed with GNYHA Services to help Wyckoff Heights Medical Center, a 350-bed teaching hospital in Brooklyn, successfully procure more than 28 million kWh of electricity from renewable sources. The resulting 24-month contract is expected to dramatically reduce the hospital’s carbon footprint while cutting its electricity costs by approximately $120,000.

Through a series of online auctions run on the World Energy Exchange®, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center was able to test pricing for various terms and products in an efficient and transparent manner. In all, the competitive event attracted nine suppliers, who over the course of 45 minutes submitted more than 90 bids, resulting in a new contract for 100% green power – a first for the hospital. Delivery under the new contract terms begins in April 2013.

By purchasing 100% green energy, Wyckoff Heights Medical Center is expecting to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 10,030 metric tons each year. This reduction is the equivalent of each of the following:

  • Annual greenhouse gas emissions from 2,090 passenger vehicles
  • CO2 emissions from 1,124,459 gallons of gasoline consumed
  • CO2 emissions from 23,326 barrels of oil consumed
  • CO2 emissions from the electricity use of 1,502 homes for one year

GSA Drives Green Power Adoption, Major Energy Savings across New York Federal Facilities through World Energy Solutions

Reverse Auctions Deliver Fair and Open Competition, $10+ Million in Expected Savings

New York, NY and Worcester, MA – June 28, 2012 – World Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: XWES), a leading energy management services firm, today announced it helped the U.S. General Services Administration, Region 2, successfully procure
~300 million kWh of electricity. Included in the procurement were several GSA facilities in New York, as well as other federal accounts, including the American Red Cross, Bureau of Prisons, United Nations, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Through a series of competitive online auctions on the World Energy Exchange®, GSA tested multiple products and terms in a fair and transparent manner, amassing 127 bids from six suppliers in the process. The online events resulted in new contracts that are expected to yield more than $10.8 million in savings compared to the participating agencies’ prior agreements. Delivery under the new terms will begin in May 2013.

Notably, GSA awarded two-year power contracts for its Manhattan and Upstate Service Centers, which are expected to yield annual savings of more than $3 million and $750,000 respectively. The Manhattan Service Center achieved this savings while purchasing 100% green energy. In addition, GSA’s Upstate Service Center was able to secure 7.5% green power for some of its accounts that had not purchased green power previously.

Through the auctions, each participating agency secured green power while reducing energy costs, further burnishing GSA Region 2’s credentials in environmental leadership. In 2011, GSA Region 2 won a coveted GSA Achievement Award for Real Property Innovation in sustainability. GSA has been notified it will receive a similar award again in 2012 for continuing to lead by example.

“It is very gratifying to help GSA Region 2 and other participating federal agencies in New York capitalize on historic lows in the market to save money and green their portfolios,” said Jonathan Harvey, Vice President, Government, at World Energy Solutions. “Each time we do this – and we’ve been working together now for 10+ years – we see how well our procurement process works, the competitive dynamics it fosters and the strong supplier participation it elicits. GSA continues to lead the way in energy procurement, delivering great results to its constituents in a fair and transparent manner.”

Added Phil Adams, CEO of World Energy Solutions: “Under the careful stewardship of Ken Shutika and Brian Magden, GSA Region 2 has set the gold standard for energy procurement. The proof lies in the numerous awards they have won – and keep on winning – and the millions of dollars in electricity-rate savings and green power they continue delivering to a growing number of federal agencies and facilities.”

Today’s deal marks the latest success for World Energy and GSA under the terms of a 5 year energy management contract the two executed in 2010. That contract provides supply-side energy procurement and management services to the GSA’s Energy Division for its extensive network of federal government agencies and runs through September 30, 2015.

As the federal government’s workplace solutions provider, the U.S. General Services Administration works to foster an effective, sustainable and transparent government for the American people. GSA’s expertise in government workplace solutions include:

  • Effective management of government assets, including more than 9,600 government-owned or leased buildings and 215,000 vehicles in the federal fleet, and preservation of historic federal properties;

Mercy Hospital & Medical Center Purchases Electricity, Natural Gas and Green Power through World Energy Solutions

Not-for-Profit Hospital Reaps $450,000+ in Annual Energy Savings,
Successfully Greens Portfolio

Chicago, IL and Worcester, MA – June 12, 2012 – World Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: XWES), a leading energy management services firm, today announced Mercy Hospital & Medical Center, one of Chicago’s leading not-for-profit care centers and safety-net hospitals, has successfully procured electricity, natural gas and green power for its facilities over the World Energy Exchange®.

The online auctions, administered by World Energy through a partnership with Practice Greenhealth, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to reducing the healthcare industry’s environmental impact, were highly competitive and resulted in significant choice and savings. For example, 9 suppliers competed for Mercy’s estimated annual 25 million kWh electricity load, bidding over 60 times on various term lengths and mixes of renewable energy to win the business. The resulting electricity contract, which includes 10% green power, is expected to save Mercy more than $350,000 annually compared to its prior one. Additionally, its new natural gas contract is expected to save the hospital nearly $100,000 per year.

By investing aggressively in renewable energy, Mercy Hospital & Medical Center, a member of the Chicago Green Healthcare Initiative, will reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 1,735 metric tons each year. This reduction is the equivalent of each of the following:

  • Annual greenhouse gas emissions from 340 passenger vehicles
  • CO2 emissions from 4,034 barrels of oil consumed
  • Greenhouse gas emissions avoided by recycling 604 tons of waste instead of sending it to the landfill
  • Carbon sequestered annually by 17.2 acres of forest preserved from deforestation

GSA Region 2 Wins Real Property Innovation Award for Sustainability

GSA Region 2 Wins Real Property Innovation Award for Sustainability

New York, NY and Worcester, MA – November 15, 2011 – World Energy Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: XWES), a leading energy management services firm, today announced one of its longest-standing customers, the General Services Administration’s Northeast and Caribbean Region (GSA Region 2), has won a coveted GSA Achievement Award for Real Property Innovation. The award recognizes GSA Region 2, which manages procurement for federal buildings in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, for its success purchasing high percentages of renewable power at affordable prices through an innovative reverse auction process administered by World Energy Solutions and SAIC.

A leader in green energy procurement, GSA Region 2 ran competitive procurements in November 2009 and 2010 over the World Energy Exchange®, which resulted in the purchase of more than 200 million kWh of electricity for federal facilities at a savings of over $3.5 million. Under the terms of the contracts, 95 percent of the energy will come from renewable sources. Additionally, three of Region 2’s largest facilities in New York City – 290 Broadway, 26 Federal Plaza, and 500 Pearl Street – will receive 100% percent renewable power over the entire term of the awarded contracts.

“GSA Region 2 is to be commended for its dedication to renewable energy purchasing,” said Jonathan Harvey, World Energy Solutions. “Not only has GSA Region 2 earned numerous awards for its innovation in energy procurement, which continues to deliver high percentages of green power to its facilities at low cost, but it also actively strives to exceed green standards. For example, in its most recent procurements Region 2 exceeded the DOE’s minimum green power procurement requirement while meeting a tighter renewable power definition that required renewables either be produced from resources located in the NYISO or be delivered into the NYISO. In fact, through the auction process, GSA was able to procure green power within the NYISO at a lower cost per kWh than its last procurement in 2007, before the new definition was in effect.”

The General Services Administration (GSA) Region 2 has purchased over 782 million kWh of renewable power since FY01, well before the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and Executive Order 13423 requirements promoted green purchasing. GSA Region 2 currently ranks number five on the top-ten list of largest purchasers of green power among federal government organizations within the Green Power partnership.
