ITM Power plc
("ITM Power" or "the Company")

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce that Enterprise plc has signed an agreement to participate in the hydrogen on-site trials (HOST) of ITM Power's transportable high pressure refueling unit (HFuel). The HFuel unit was built with support from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and was launched at the Company's AGM on 15th September 2010.

Enterprise is the UK's largest dedicated provider of maintenance and front-line services to the public sector and utility industry. With more than 13,000 people working from over 150 locations nationwide, Enterprise delivers over 100 different services to more than 15 million people across the UK, which is 25% of the population. Enterprise operates a fleet of approximately 8,000 vehicles on a return-to-base capacity.

Commenting for ITM Power, CEO Graham Cooley said, "We welcome Enterprise to the growing number of diverse high profile logistics organisations already participating in HOST trials. Enterprise is a major provider of front line services to the public and utility sectors, and their assessment of our energy storage, clean fuel technology, using renewable energy for promoting clean air and decarbonising fleet operations, will provide ITM Power with invaluable data."

David Pattinson, innovation manager at Enterprise said, "We are constantly seeking ways to provide innovative and pragmatic solutions to our customers, and ITM Power's hydrogen trials will provide us with the unique opportunity to assess the energy storage: clean fuel proposition from the perspective of the driver, the fleet manager and as a company to help us deliver services with zero carbon emissions and improve air quality as part of our business."

HOST will begin in 2011, and comprises the operation and refueling of two Revolve Technologies hydrogen Ford Transit vehicles, with hydrogen produced on site at the point of use, at sites operated by participating companies and in the Gateway to London development area. Enterprise joins DHL Supply Chain, The Commercial Group, London Stansted Airport, The Forestry Commission, Scottish Water, SSE (Scottish & Southern Energy), Scottish Police Authority, Vestas Wind Systems AS, Center Parcs, Tarmac, May Gurney and local authorities Sheffield City Council, the London Borough of Camden and Southampton City Council, who have recently joined the programme.

HOST provides each partner with a one week free trial of HFuel and the Revolve HICE transit vehicles, and an option to lease both HFuel and vehicles for additional week(s). The demonstrations are 100% managed and operated by ITM personnel in liaison with site owners’ operations and management.

As part of the HOST programme ITM Power is actively seeking both technical partners interested in storing renewable energy, and commercial partners seeking to trial zero carbon fleets.
