SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc

("SEEIT" or the "Company")

Rooftop solar projects for a leading UK supermarket

SDCL Energy Efficiency Income Trust plc is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Tesco plc ("Tesco") with regards to a portfolio of rooftop solar photovoltaic ("PV") projects. The initial batch of solar projects will be c.1 megawatt of a first phase of c.5 megawatts with additional solar projects scheduled under a framework agreement.

Tesco will enter into a Power Purchase Agreement ("PPA") with SEEIT for each individual site. Under the terms of the PPAs, SEEIT will be responsible for the installation, ownership, operation and maintenance of each project.

SEEIT has partnered with Kingspan Energy Limited ("Kingspan") to provide a complete design, build, finance, operate and maintenance solution for Tesco, with Kingspan being the project Engineering, Operation and Construction contractor as well as the Operation and Maintenance contractor. Alongside manufacturing and supplying high performance building envelope and renewable energy solutions, Kingspan is a leading engineering, procurement and construction contractor with a strong solar rooftop track record in the UK.

This investment fits our investment thesis by bringing competitively priced clean energy directly to the point of use. The project represents SEEIT's second project investment since listing on the London Stock Exchange and acquiring the Seed Portfolio in December 2018 and its first operating project incorporating solar PV technology. The Company continues to invest the proceeds from Initial Public Offering and recent Placing, executing on its identified pipeline opportunities.

Commenting on the project, Jonathan Maxwell, CEO of SDCL, said:

"We are continuing to deliver on the pipeline opportunities identified at the time of our Initial Public Offering and are pleased to announce our first investment in rooftop solar PVs. We are delighted to have been selected as a supplier of these solar rooftops and pleased to be able to partner with Kingspan as a single supplier and contractor. With all the revenues being generated from the PPAs and costs being largely fixed, this is a positive, stable investment for SEEIT and one we are delighted to add to our growing portfolio".

Marci Bonham, Managing Director of Kingspan Energy Ltd, added:

"With growing emphasis on the importance of sustainable development, it is vital large businesses lead the way by embracing the latest building technologies to enable them to push the performance of their facilities beyond current standards. We are delighted to be a partner on this ambitious project and to have the opportunity to deliver a full turnkey package, from the design and product supply to installation and ongoing maintenance, on such a large scale."
