KBRA Releases Macro-Market Research on Ireland: KBRA Will Look to Fundamentals in Event of No-Deal Brexit

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kroll Bond Rating Agency’s (KBRA) latest macro-market comment provides
KBRA’s insights surrounding our treatment of the United Kingdom’s (UK)
departure from the European Union (“Brexit”) as it relates to Ireland’s
sovereign credit rating. KBRA’s view on Ireland is based upon the
expectation that Brexit will prove manageable for the country due to two
main reasons: (1) a “soft” rather than “no-deal” Brexit appears more
likely at this point, and (2) our expectations for Ireland’s economic
resilience to remain resolute post-Brexit. KBRA would likely revisit
Ireland’s credit rating if it turns out that the eventual Brexit outcome
would have a material long-term impact on the country’s economic and
fiscal profile. KBRA ratings are based upon a critical evaluation of
credit risk fundamentals—matters related to ability and willingness
to pay debts—and are not a reaction to headlines.

Total Eren and NBT Secure the Financing for the First Phase of The 250 MW Syvash Wind Project in Ukraine from a Consortium Led by EBRD

KIEV, Ukraine & PARIS & OSLO, Norway–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NBT AS (“NBT”), a utility-scale wind power developer based in Oslo,
and Total Eren SA (“Total Eren”), a leading renewable energy Independent
Power Producer (“IPP”) based in Paris, have signed definitive financing
agreements for the first phase of a 250 MW wind project located in the
Kherson region of Ukraine. The €155M financing agreement was signed at a
special meeting of Ukraine’s National Investment Council in Davos. The
project’s start of construction is imminent.

The onshore wind project, called Syvash wind farm (“Syvash”) has been
developed by Norway-based NBT together with France-based Total Eren. At
its full capacity, Syvash represents a €380 million total investment.
Syvash will consist of 64 wind turbines and will be located on 1,300
hectares of land in the southern Kherson region of Ukraine. Once
completed, it is expected to become the country’s largest renewable
energy project.

Syvash is the first internationally financed large-scale wind farm in
Ukraine. An A/B loan of up to €155 million has been raised for the
construction of the initial 133 MW phase. It will consist of a €75
million EBRD loan, while B-Loans of up to €75 million will be provided
jointly by the Green for Growth Fund (GGF) and the Netherlands
Development Finance Company (FMO). A parallel loan of €5 million will be
provided by the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO).

The Syvash wind farm will be built to very high international standards,
conforming to EBRD Performance Standards and Equator Principles. The
electricity generated from Syvash will be sold to state-owned company
“Energorynok” – Ukraine’s wholesale electricity market operator. Once
the full project is constructed, it will have a planned production of
850 GWh per year, and will generate enough electricity to meet the needs
of approximately 100,000 households in the municipality of Rivne, in
Ukraine. It is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 470,000 tonnes per
year, hence creating a positive impact on the environment.

The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract has been
signed with PowerChina, one of the largest power plant construction
companies worldwide and Nordex Group, a leading producer of onshore wind
turbines. Construction work is expected to start in a few weeks. The
project will bring economic development and significant tax revenues to
the Kherson region and will have a lasting economics impact even after
its construction is completed.

Syvash represents Total Eren and NBT’s first project in Ukraine, a
country with high potential for renewable energy sources, combined with
strong local support from the Ukrainian Government, the Office of the
National Investment Council, regional authorities and other partners to
develop the Ukrainian renewable energy market.

David Corchia, CEO of Total Eren, stated: “This signature
marks an important milestone for Total Eren in extending its development
efforts to Eastern Europe with a project of this scale. We are proud to
have mobilized, together with our partner NBT, this trusted lender group
led by EBRD and look forward to starting construction and finalizing the
second phase of the project. We see tremendous potential for further
development for Total Eren in Ukraine.”

Joar Viken, CEO of NBT, stated: “We are extremely happy that
we can invest along with our strategic partner Total Eren in
utility-scale wind farms that will power the sustainable future growth
of Ukraine. The 250MW Syvash wind farm is just the start of our plans to
invest a considerable amount of capital in our large pipeline of wind
projects in Ukraine over the next two to three years. With improved
business climate in Ukraine and success of this international project
financing, we envision that private commercial institutions and
international investors will see the benefits of investing in Ukraine.
In addition, we foresee potential interest for Green Bonds to financing
NBT’s pipeline of new wind projects in Ukraine. We look forward to
working with the Government of Ukraine and our strategic partners to
support our expansion plans for investing in wind power in Ukraine.”

Founded in 2012 by Pâris Mouratoglou and David Corchia, Total Eren has
built up a substantial and diversified portfolio of wind, solar and
hydroelectric assets representing an installed gross capacity of more

appygas Offers a Unique Solution in Europe Making the Gas Trading Easy to Understand

The Berlin start-up will be present at E-world 2019 to introduce its
new features.

BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#appygaslt;/agt;–One big challenge in energy trading is quick access to reliable data. European
regulations have made this data public to everyone but it is still not
easily processable
. Units, formats, tariffs and regulations are not
harmonized, making it tedious, especially for new market players, to get
a full and correct market overview. Here is where appygas comes into

The information platform appygas was launched in February 2018 to
respond to the need of traders for efficient and reliable access to gas
market data. The appygas team has experience working in transmission
systems as well as in trading and the reliability of data processing
hinges on this knowledge.

The value proposition for the user is simple: appygas collects all
relevant published data from more than 40 European sources, harmonizes
and aggregates them according to a “best newest data” logic, and finally
provides it on its web-platform with enhanced user experience and

The best example is the appygas Route Calculator, a unique service in
Europe. Like a common navigator, users select a route from A to B across
Europe, enter a gas volume and a time period and with just one click
appygas calculates the transport fee for all possible routes, classified
by price, capacity type and operator. Further information such as daily
spreads or next transport capacity auctions are also displayed.

The other modules of appygas are built according to the same principle:
making the gas market easy to understand. The flows and availability
maps provide users with near real-time gas flows as well as maintenance
schedules and updates. A daily dashboard delivers an extensive overview
of the latest development on the gas transport market.

Since its launch last February the platform is continuously evolving to
respond to market needs and currently covers Europe’s nine most
significant market areas. The latest developments such as a download
module and API service will be presented at Eworld in Essen from Feb 5
to 7 (stand 418 in hall 2).

To benefit from appygas, customers can register at
and sign up to a free trial.

GSMA: Forty CEOs Back Launch of Digital Declaration at Davos

Declaration Unites CEOs Committed to Responsible Leadership in the
Digital Era

DAVOS, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The GSMA today launched the ‘Digital Declaration’ at the World Economic
Forum in Davos. The declaration captures key principles that serve as a
guide to acting ethically in the digital era, helping companies deliver
what matters most to digital citizens, industry and governments. The 40
business leaders who have already committed to the declaration span
several industry sectors and include representatives from: Bharti
Airtel, China Mobile, China Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, Ericsson, IBM,
KDDI, KT, LG Electronics, Mobile World Capital Barcelona, Nokia, NTT
DOCOMO, Orange, Samsung Electronics, Sharp, SK Telecom, Sony
Corporation, STC Group, Telefónica, Turkcell, Verizon, Vodafone and

The initiative has arisen against a backdrop of businesses and consumers
experiencing unprecedented change in the digital world. It is expected
that by 2022, 60 per cent of GDP will be digitised1. The
imminent arrival of 5G networks will further accelerate this change. At
the same time consumers are rightfully expecting more from digital
services, while their trust in businesses is being tested.

The Digital Declaration is a cross-industry movement of CEOs confronting
these shared challenges. Its principles call on businesses to; respect
the privacy of digital citizens; handle personal data securely and
transparently; take meaningful steps to mitigate cyber threats; and
ensure everyone can participate in the digital economy as it develops
whilst combatting online harassment. Taken together, these commitments
will ensure the internet is kept as an open platform for expression and
a driver of innovation.

“Social, technological, political and economic currents are combining to
create a perfect storm of disruption across all industries,” said Mats
Granryd, Director General GSMA. “A new form of responsible leadership is
needed to successfully navigate this era. We are on the cusp of the 5G
era, which will spark exciting new possibilities for consumers and
promises to transform the shape of virtually every business. In the face
of this disruption, those that embrace the principles of the Digital
Declaration will strive for business success in ways that seek a better
future for their consumers and societies. Those that do not change can
expect to suffer increasing scrutiny from shareholders, regulators and

“A positive and enabling digital future is integral to a truly empowered
and inclusive society,” said Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman of Bharti
Airtel – the first business leader to sign the Digital Declaration.
“Such a future can only be built through constructive collaboration and
continuous dialogue among key stakeholders. It is imperative for
industry to make the required investments to build a sustainable digital
ecosystem and maintain citizen’s trust through transparent and
responsible conduct with regard to privacy and data.”

“Backing The Digital Declaration fits into our vision to enable a
progressive, free and enlightened society,” said Stéphane Richard,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Orange, and Chair of the GSMA.
“Orange fights digital exclusion with innovations that are accessible to
the greatest possible number of people. We secure and facilitate our
customers’ digital lives thanks to our expertise in cybersecurity and in
digital identity. Joining the Digital Declaration provides us with a
shared vision of acting responsibly as we help our customers enter the
eras of artificial intelligence and of the internet of things.”

Mobile is one of the most widely deployed technology platforms ever with
more than 5 billion unique mobile subscribers worldwide, representing
approximately two-thirds of the world’s population – forecast to grow to
almost 6 billion (71 per cent) by 2025. Representing the mobile industry
globally, the GSMA is at the heart of many of the technological
innovations already shaping tomorrow’s digital society, including 5G.
The industry body has worked with business leaders to shape the
declaration to demonstrate the private sector’s commitment to
responsible leadership at a time when policymakers are facing new
challenges from the evolving digital ecosystem.

As we move into an era of Intelligent Connectivity, the combination of
endless connectivity enabled through 5G and the Internet of Things, with
the powerful intelligence delivered by big data and artificial
intelligence will further transform entire industries. Through embracing
the Digital Declaration, CEOs are showing their commitment to acting
responsibly as they keep pace with this rapid rate of technology change.

The GSMA is inviting business leaders from any sector to join the
Digital Declaration and ask themselves what role they can play in
creating a better digital society. Further information on the Digital
Declaration, including details of CEOs that have already joined can be
found here.
