#  In addition, the Association strives to increase communication and the exchange of information,
research and experience among members and increase access to energy regulatory
information and experience around the world and promote opportunities for training
continents. The association was formed as a result of a merger in December 1999 of the sister
sector bodies UNIPEDE and EURELECTRIC. EURELECTRIC's mission is to contribute to the
development and competitiveness of the electricity industry and to promote the role of electricity in
the advancement of society. As a centre of strategic expertise, EURELECTRIC identifies the
common interests of its Members. EURELECTRIC is then able - through in-depth and specialized

COGEN Europe is the European association for the promotion of
cogeneration. Its principal goal is to work towards the wider use of
cogeneration in Europe for a sustainable energy future. Cogeneration or
Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the most efficient way to deliver
heating, cooling and electricity. It is based on the simultaneous
production of electricity and thermal energy, both of which are used. The
central and most fundamental principle of cogeneration is that, in order
to maximise the many benefits that arise from it, systems should be
based on the heat demand of the application.

The Pöyry story began in 1958 when over the course of one night Dr Jaakko Pöyry agreed to do the
basic engineering for the Äänekoski sulphate pulp mill in Finland. From that night on Pöyry grew.
First to Sweden and the other Nordic countries followed by Europe, the Americas and eventually to
the rest of the world. By its tenth anniversary, the company had produced nearly 10 000 drawings
and had a staff of more than 100. And by its twentieth anniversary the company had produced
more than 75 000 drawings and had a staff of more than 1000.
As the company grew the culture did too. But what set Pöyry apart already in the early years was
integrity. Clients could always count on Pöyry engineers and consultants for advice. The advice
was honest and straightforward - always the best, most thought out advice available.

Pöyry is an international consulting and engineering company. We serve clients globally across
the energy and industrial sectors and provide local services in our core markets. We deliver
management consulting and engineering services, underpinned by strong project implementation
capability and expertise. Our focus sectors are power generation, transmission & distribution,
forest industry, chemicals & biorefining, mining & metals, transportation and water. Pöyry has an
extensive local office network employing about 6,000 experts. Pöyry’s net sales in 2015 were EUR
575 million and the company’s shares are quoted on Nasdaq Helsinki (Pöyry PLC: POY1V).
