Portuguese Ambassador Mr Christoper Sainty at the DIT Business Awards, Portugal.

WElink Energy has today been recognised for its significant and groundbreaking investment in
renewable energy at the UK’s Department of International Trade Business Awards held in Lisbon,
Portugal. The Overseas Investment and Growth Award was given to WElink Energy in recognition of its
work in delivering unsubsidised utility scale solar plants.

In August 2018, WElink’s 46MWp Ourika Solar Power Plant became Europe’s largest operational
unsubsidised solar plant, located in Southern Portugal. WElink is also currently on course in 2019 to
surpass Ourika’s record with the delivery of its 221MWp Solara4 solar power plant, also located in
Southern Portugal.

WElink Energy CEO John Murphy said of the award:

‘WElink is delighted to receive this award in recognition of our work innovating the future in solar energy
Along with our strategic partners CTIEC, we have developed a competitive business model to deliver
utility scale solar plants without the need for public subsidy.
Moving forward, we have a significant European growth strategy with an initial focus on the Iberian
Peninsula, that will help accelerate the delivery of key renewable targets in the region and a low carbon
future in Europe.’
