|July 28,2015 Management Agreement|
|Towards the installation of woody gasification power plant of ZE Design Inc.'s first project, the memorandum of understanding was signed with Mogami-town of Yamagata Prefecture.|
For the purpose to create a lively and beautiful space taking advantage of the resources of the region, on July 28, 2015 (Tue), the memorandum of understanding on cooperation system building for gasification power generation business was signed by renewable energy power producers, ZE Design Inc. (Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Representative Director : Hideyuki Nishieda, hereunder ZE Design), manufacturer of "Compact biomass power generation equipmrnt" of 2000kW or less we ZE Energy Inc. (Hamamatsu-cho, Minato-ku, Representative Director : Naoki Matsuo, hereunder ZE Energy) and Mogami-town, Yamagata Prefecture. ZE Design will continue working towards the installation of woody gasification power plant to be the first time for the company.
This cooperation system building is intended to continue to smoothly promote the project by three parties together ZE Design, ZE Energy and Mogami-town so as to contribute to the development of Mogami-town with respect to woody biomass gasification power generation business which ZE Design is planning in Mogami-town.
ZE Design and ZE Energy have worked to realize the energy model for a sustainable society and local production for local consumption through our business to utilize biomass, manufacture and develop small-scale power generation equipment.
And along with Mogami-town who has agreed to the establishment of self-power plant that had been planned for some time, we will work to develop biomass power generation system using effectively forest resources of the region.

■ About prospects of this project and use of power
Through this project ZE Design and ZE Energy intend to strive to activation of Mogami-town and creation of employment. And we three parties together also will continue committed to the local creation and the development of Mogami-town under the cooperation in the range allowed in the government on a variety of issues that will arise when proceeding with this project.
Meantime, since we are considering the effective use of the heat generated during power generation in Mogami-town and the facilities, we will proceed with the consultation by the people involved in the business such as ZE Design, ZE Energy, Mogami-town and regional experts, setting up Mogami-town Biomass Promotion Council. (tentative name)
As to the use of power, although for a certain period of time we will sell it to Tohoku Electric Power, we are planning to continue to work as a power company of Mogami-town selling preferentially power to this town when ZE Design or ZE Energy is to obtain a license for specific scale electric utilities and becomes possible to supply within the jurisdiction of Mogami-town.
■ About Mogami-town
In Mogami-town it has accounted forest of 84% of the area of the town. Forestry has been steadily reduced due to alternate such as fossil fuel, though once it had been a thriving in the use of firewood and charcoal In recent years the upsurge has shown such as heat supply by forest energy to welfare facilities of the region, further we will promote "Town development" by biomass energy starting power supply by this project.
