Prenova secures $3 million in financing from Siemens Venture Capital
Enhances ability to deliver high-value energy management solutions

ATLANTA, GA – March, 19, 2007 – Prenova, Inc., one of the nation’s largest independent energy management solutions providers, announced today it received $3 million in venture capital funding from Siemens Venture Capital to support Prenova’s continued market growth, fueled by interest in its patent-pending technology delivery platform. This investment furthers Siemens Venture Capital’s goal to identify and fund investments in emerging and innovative technologies that will enhance the core business scope of Siemens.

“Prenova has an unmatched technology capability to manage remotely the complex enterprise-wide energy-based assets and systems for businesses,” said Todd Jaquez-Fissori, General Partner at Siemens Venture Capital. “This unique capability will help them deliver their solutions to more customers in retail, telecommunications, restaurant, commercial, and manufacturing business sectors to drive down and manage total end-to-end energy costs. Prenova serves highly referenceable, blue-chip customers who have realized significant returns on investment through their relationship with Prenova. We are confident that Prenova's solution set and experienced management team ideally position the company in a market where customers are increasingly focused on reducing and managing their energy-related expenses.'

“Businesses are faced with higher peak energy costs (price, usage, asset repair/replacement costs, and maintenance) every year,” said Ed Smith, CEO of Prenova. “Customers are demanding innovative energy solutions that can produce significant returns at a fraction of conventional costs and timeframes. Our customers utilize Prenova’s solutions to fully leverage their existing energy assets, manage their energy risks and remove every possible dollar out of their energy-related operating costs. Results are dramatic, rapid, measurable and sustainable, allowing our customers to turn these cost reductions into improved earnings performance. This additional capital will enable Prenova to extend our leadership position with this non-replicable technology and greatly enhance our ability to deliver high-value energy management solutions to an even broader array of businesses. We appreciate this investment of Siemens Venture Capital, a leader in funding emerging innovative technologies.”
