WASHINGTON -- October 9, 2013

Siemens Government Technologies, Inc. announced today that the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, working with the
Army Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF) has completed the initial awards
under all four Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award
Task Order Contracts (MATOC) for geothermal, solar, wind and biomass
technologies to support renewable energy on Defense Department installations.
The four MATOCs have multiple awardees but the Siemens team was the only one
that was selected for all of them.

This MATOC will be used to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and
alternative energy for DoD installations through power purchase agreements
(PPA). The contracts provide a three-year base with seven one-year options,
for a total ordering period of 10 years. The $7 billion contract capacity will
be expended for PPAs to procure energy during a period of up to 30 years from
renewable energy generation systems that are designed, financed, constructed,
operated and maintained by contractors using private sector financing.

“As the only company to be awarded all four renewable technologies on this
landmark MATOC, Siemens has assembled a core team of trusted and reliable
partners who bring more than 100 years of combined industry experience in the
energy market,” said Judy Marks, president and CEO, Siemens Government
Technologies, Inc. “Together, with best-in-class subcontractors Bechtel and
AECOM, we will deliver mission success by responding to task orders with
efficiency, innovation and effectiveness to accomplish the Army’s goals of
increasing their use of renewable energy, enhancing infrastructure resilience
and energy security, while decreasing energy costs.”

In April 2012, the White House announced the Defense Department was making one
of the largest commitments to clean energy in history, by setting a goal to
deploy 3 gigawatts of renewable energy -- including solar, wind, biomass or
geothermal -- on Army, Navy and Air Force installations by 2025. That is
enough energy to power 750,000 homes. The Army's goal is 1 gigawatt of that
total.

"Bechtel looks forward to working with Siemens to support the Army in meeting
its clean energy commitment through public-private partnerships," said Greg
Frank, general manager of Bechtel’s U.S. Defense & Security business line. “We
have been a leader in the renewable energy market for more than three decades
by deploying a broad range of innovative and sustainable technology and design
solutions. We look forward to supporting this effort by drawing on our
experience building some of the world’s largest solar facilities of their
kind, totaling nearly 800MW of clean, renewable energy in the last two years."

“The U.S. Army is setting a new standard for achieving energy independence and
security with these contracts and AECOM is proud to support its commitment,”
said Darcy Immerman, senior vice president of AECOM’s energy business. “We
look forward to supporting the team with our innovative and integrated
capabilities in environmental planning and permitting; civil and water
engineering; and transmission and distribution design and
interconnections.This is a tremendous win for the team, for AECOM and for our
country.”

These contracts will place the Army one step closer to meeting Congressional
energy mandates of 25 percent production and consumption of energy from
renewable sources by 2025 and improving installation energy security and
sustainability.
