PRESS RELEASE

Leclanché to supply one of the largest Energy Storage Systems in the world

- Hecate Canada Storage II, LLP, an emerging Canadian Project Development and
Electrical Systems Integrator, selects Leclanché as the exclusive partner to
provide 13MW / 53MWh Energy Storage Systems.

- Project covering six Ancillary Services agreements with Ontario's Independent
Electricity System Operator (IESO), positioned at several locations, is due for
financial closing in H1 2016, at which time the purchase order will be
completed.

Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland, January 18, 2016 -Continuing on its rapid growth
path, Leclanché has been selected to deliver one of the largest Grid Ancillary
Services projects in North America.

Leclanché will provide the entire Battery Storage Systems for all the contracted
facilities to be built near Toronto, Ontario - Canada. Leclanché will team up
with Deltro Energy Inc. who will procure, design and construct the site
facilities balance of plant scope and high voltage connections to the grid.
Deltro will also be the operator of the facilities and Greensmith Energy will
provide the energy management system, when the projects come on line, expected
in 4Q 2016.

The IESO, the system operator in Ontario awarded the contracts through a
competitive solicitation process in 2014 as part of its Energy Storage
Procurement Phase 1 project. The IESO plans to use the energy storage systems to
meet its needs for fast-reacting ancillary services. The principal service
provided under these contracts is voltage control and reactive power support, an
application that's becoming increasingly important for Ontario and other regions
with significant amounts of intermittentwind and solar powernow on the high
voltage transmission networks.

David Del Mastro, CEO of Deltro, comments: "After an intense round of
competitive bidding among many of the world's largest energy storage providers,
we have decided to team up with Leclanché for this project because of their high
quality battery storage products, very professional approach and ability to
provide thoughtful solutions for the complete design and construction of a full
battery power plant. We have asked Leclanché to deliver these storage systems on
a turn-key basis and will work closely with them to ensure this project is
successfully constructed and fully integrated into the IESO grid".

Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché, adds: "We are very pleased to have been
selected for this world leading project. Thanks to the exceptional engineering
and project development capabilities of Deltro and the quality Ancillary
Services agreements, we are confident that the project will soon reach financial
closing. We hope to start the construction in spring 2016 and start the first
operation by the end of the year. This win is yet another solid proof of the
effective execution of Leclanché's growth plan and the market appreciation of
Leclanché's full product and services offering".
