Signs Offtake Agreement with Tesla for Bouldercombe

Sydney, Dec 9, 2021 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Genex Power Limited (googlechartASX:GNX) is pleased to announce that it has executed an Autobidder Offtake Agreement (Agreement) in relation to the 50MW/100MWh Bouldercombe Battery Project located near Rockhampton in central Queensland (BBP or the Project), with Tesla Motors Australia Pty Ltd (Tesla).

The rationale behind developing this innovative arrangement with Tesla for the BBP was to balance the requirement for a minimum level of contracted revenues to support project financing, whilst retaining the ability to capture revenue upside beyond a fixed guaranteed amount. Hence, the Agreement provides for a fixed and floating payment (revenue share) structure, whereby the fixed component extends cash flow certainty to the Project lenders whilst the floating revenue share component allows the Company to retain upside revenue exposure to merchant cash flows from the energy arbitrage and frequency control ancillary services (FCAS) markets.

Under the Agreement, Tesla will operate the BBP using its proprietary algorithm-based bidding system, Autobidder, to maximise revenues in each given year. Autobidder is a real-time trading and control platform which employs a machine learning algorithm to optimise dispatch behaviour whilst adapting to new markets and services.

After 8 years and upon conclusion of the Agreement, Genex will enter into a license agreement with Tesla to operate Autobidder on the Project. Autobidder has been successfully deployed on over 1GWh of Tesla projects globally.

Under the recently executed Supply Agreement (refer to ASX Announcement dated 1 October 2021), Tesla will supply the 50MW/100MWh BBP battery with 40 Tesla Megapacks. Megapack is an all-in-one utility-scale energy storage system optimised for cost and performance, with each Megapack fully assembled, factory tested and shipped from Tesla's Gigafactory in Nevada, USA.

Commenting on the Autobidder Offtake Agreement with Tesla, James Harding, Genex Chief Executive Officer stated:

"We are extremely pleased to have signed the Autobidder Offtake Agreement with Tesla. The Agreement follows on from execution of the Megapack Supply Agreement in October and represents a key milestone for the project as we move forward to financial close.

The Bouldercombe Battery Project is set to be one of the first standalone large-scale Battery Energy Storage Systems in Queensland. The unique integration of Tesla's Megapack battery technology and a revenue sharing arrangement utilising Autobidder will reduce the complexity of the project. Importantly the structure of the Agreement provides a minimum level of contracted revenues to support project funding, while allowing Genex to retain significant merchant upside.

We are delighted to be working with Tesla, the world's leading vertically integrated renewable energy company, in developing this exciting project, further positioning Genex as the leading ASX listed renewable energy and storage company."
