CyLec, Cyan's smart metering solution for energy utilities transforms existing
                power grid infrastructure into the smart grid

                                      



Cyan Holdings plc (AIM:CYAN.L), the integrated system and software design
company delivering mesh based flexible wireless solutions for utility metering
and lighting control today announces that one of its partners is
participating in the recently initiated, high profile smart grid project in
Puducherry, India.



The smart grid pilot project is being led by the Power Grid Corporation of
India Limited (PGCIL), a government of India enterprise and was recently
inaugurated by Chief Minister N. Rangasamy in the presence of Power Minister
T.Thiagrajan. The project is to install an Advanced Metering Infrastructure
(AMI) solution in houses throughout Puducherry to support the electricity
department's objective to save power. An AMI solution will enable the
department to monitor online energy usage patterns as well as detect tamper
events, e.g. energy theft. It is anticipated that consumers of Puducherry will
also benefit from real-time accurate billing information to help manage their
energy consumption.



Cyan's metering partner has deployed CyLec enabled meters in Puducherry for
evaluation by PGCIL. The installation demonstrates CyLec®, Cyan's integrated
solution for AMI and is expected to remain in place for up to six months. Cyan
and its partner are working with a third party system integrator to provide a
Meter Data Acquisition System (MDAS) platform to manage and present the data
collected from the meters.



John Cronin, Executive Chairman of Cyan commented: "We are delighted that one
of our meter manufacturer partners is involved in this project driven by PGCIL
and look forward to providing the market with further updates as it develops.
Yesterday's RNS concerning the exercise of warrants further demonstrates
shareholder confidence in Cyan's market opportunity in India and provides
additional funding for working capital purposes."
