Dear Companists,

Thank you very much for your support, the tremendous feedback concerning our company and the many questions, which we are always happy to answer. In this update we will inform you about the current status of our pilot project with the international telecommunications provider Vodafone.

 

1. Project aim

MOWEA's modular wind energy system is an ideal additional renewable energy source for telecommunication masts for several reasons: MOWEA's turbines are flexible, light, and efficient. In addition, a telecommunications mast has a perfect height and therefore good wind conditions. Depending on the radio technology installed, a radio mast requires between 15 kWh and 60 kWh of energy per day.

Mobile network operators have energy procurement costs between € 0.23/kWh (connected to the energy network, on-grid) and € 1.28/kWh (not connected to the energy network, off-grid). Germany alone has 16,000 free-standing telecommunication masts and there will be 1.2 million off-grid masts worldwide by 2020!

MOWEA's goal is to prove the economic efficiency of our modular wind energy system's scalable use and to quantify the amount of energy generated.

 

2. Location found and technical interfaces analyzed

In north-eastern Germany, MOWEA will equip a Vodafone radio tower with four turbines. The turbines are attached to the lattice mast at a height of approx. 35m and the "green" energy is fed directly into the DC voltage network of the radio mast. We are very pleased about the cooperation in the technical development of the electrical interfaces between the turbine and the radio systems and the resulting expertise, which we can and will use worldwide.

Note

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
