Clenergen Corporation (OTCBB:CRGE) Appoints Tim Bowen as Chief Operating Officer

NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwire - April 8, 2010) - Clenergen today announces the appointment of Tim Bowen as Chief Operating Officer of Clenergen Corporation, with immediate effect.

Tim (aged 45) has significant experience in advising companies on increasing shareholder value. Most recently, Tim was the Chief Financial Officer of Greenko Group plc a developer / owner / operator of renewable energy biomass, hydro and wind assets in India. As CFO, Tim was responsible for overseeing Greenko's pre-IPO funding, as well as its successful AIM IPO in November 2007, 23 months after incorporation. Greenko now has a market capitalisation of circa $275 million and is on track to delivering upon its stated target of delivering 1,000MW of power by 2015.

Previously, Tim played a leading role in three other public companies. This includes being joint COO / CFO Tim for IDOX plc, a leading software and services provider to a UK local authority marketplace. Tim oversaw its AIM IPO in 2000 as well as three further acquisitions and subsequent fund raisings and was instrumental in developing the company's early stage growth.

Tim is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants and has a B.Sc (Econ) Hons. in accounting and financial management. His successful track record in the Indian renewable energy sector, both at the State and Central Government level, will provide the management expertise necessary for Clenergen India Private Limited (a wholly owned subsidiary of Clenergen Corporation) to achieve its short term target of 150MWe of Biomass Power Generation. Under the terms of a 15 year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Power Trading Corporation of India Limited (PTC), each MWe of electricity will generate on average, $1.4 million of gross revenue per annum.

Tim will direct Clenergen India Private Limited's acquisition of existing operational biomass power plants, as well as joint ventures with major land owners in India, where up to 30% increased profit will be generated through the direct cultivation and supply of energy crops. The Company has sub let a site near Tuticorin in the State of Tamil Nadu for the construction of a new 32MWe Biomass power plant and has placed deposits on land within close proximity for the cultivation of energy crops to supply biomass to the new facility.

Mark Quinn, Clenergen CEO, said "We identified Tim earlier this year as an ideal candidate to join the Clenergen team. I am very pleased to announce Tim's appointment as COO. Tim has broad, hands on experience of leading successful growth companies, including securing funding either from debt of equity. Tim also has strong international experience of the clean energy generation industry and I look forward to working with Tim as Clenergen moves into full operational mode."

Tim Bowen, said

"After a detailed evaluation of the renewable energy sector, Clenergen presented the opportunity to achieve significant growth on a global scale. I believe that the combination of supplying fuel (wood chips, wood pellets and transport fuel) and sustainable renewable electricity, for both captive end users and regional Government energy projects, is truly a compelling business model".
