"The Principality is demonstrating great environmental and fiscal
responsibility by introducing this unique energy performance contract model to
the region," said Henri Mardegan, regional director, Energy Solutions, Johnson
Controls. "Energy retrofits provide economic and environmental payback and
with performance contracting, no upfront capital is needed. If the savings are
not achieved, Johnson Controls will pay the difference providing zero
performance risk to the Principality."

This contract is fully in line with the Climate & Energy plan of the
Principality to improve the energy performance of its 400 public buildings.
Johnson Controls will focus on the carabineers' barracks, public safety
offices, Rainier III conference centre and auditorium, international meeting
centre and Albert I school. Johnson Controls will oversee the project design,
equipment installation and maintenance for 12 years as part of the energy
performance contract.

This type of energy efficiency program is modeled after successful programs in
Germany. A notable example in Germany includes an energy savings partnership
implemented by the Berliner Energy Agency (BEA). The program upgraded more
than 1,300 facilities in Berlin reaching an average annual savings of 26
