Quarterly Distribution Increase

The Board of Directors has approved an increase in the quarterly distribution to $0.415 or $1.66 per limited partnership unit ("LP Unit") on an annualized basis, an increase of 7% from the prior level.

"We are pleased to have delivered an attractive total return to shareholders and to announce this increase in the distribution reflecting our strong cash flow profile and organic growth prospects," said Richard Legault, Chief Executive Officer. "Brookfield Renewable completed another successful year in which we acquired or announced additions of more than 1,300 megawatts of new capacity, including scale acquisitions in Europe and Brazil. Our expansion into key new markets, diversification into new technologies and the cash flow upside tied to rising power prices bode well for future performance."

Senior Management Appointments

The Board of Brookfield Renewable is pleased to announce that Sachin Shah has been named President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Shah joined Brookfield Asset Management in 2002 and has held a number of senior management positions. Mr. Shah joined Brookfield Renewable in 2011 as its Chief Financial Officer and has been instrumental in the implementation of the company's business strategy. Mr. Shah will report to Richard Legault, Chief Executive Officer.

The Board is also pleased to announce that Nicholas (Nick) Goodman has been named Chief Financial Officer.

"It gives me great satisfaction to announce the appointment of two proven professionals to key leadership positions," said Mr. Legault. "We are first and foremost focused on operational excellence and growth in shareholder value. I am confident that in their new roles, Sachin and Nick will continue to build a strong organization that delivers on these objectives."

Review of Operations

Generation levels during the three months ended December 31, 2014 totaled 5,839 gigawatt hours (GWh) compared to the long-term average of 5,770 GWh, an increase of 571 compared to the same period in the prior year.

The hydroelectric portfolio generated 4,943 GWh, consistent with the long-term average of 4,914 GWh and an increase of 393 GWh from the same period in the prior year. Generation from existing hydroelectric assets was 4,634 GWh compared to 4,550 GWh in Q4 2013. The variance in results from existing facilities reflects strong inflows in Ontario and improved hydrological conditions in New England and Louisiana, partly offset by a return to more normal inflows in New York, Tennessee and North Carolina. In Brazil, generation for the quarter was below assured levels due to continued drought-like conditions, but was partially offset by participation in the national balancing pool and by successful marketing initiatives which captured high selling prices for uncontracted generation. Facilities acquired and commissioned in 2014 contributed 309 GWh.

The wind portfolio generated 840 GWh in the fourth quarter, very close to the long-term average of 852 GWh and an increase of 337 GWh when compared to Q4 2013. Generation from existing assets was higher compared to the prior year due to improved wind conditions across the United States portfolio. The wind portfolio in Ireland, which was acquired in June 2014, contributed 299 GWh.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $273 million and FFO was $116 million, compared to $272 million and $137 million, respectively, in the same period in the prior year.

For the year ended December 31, 2014, total generation was 22,548 GWh compared to the long-term average of 23,296 GWh and to 22,222 GWh in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA was $1,216 million and FFO was $560 million, compared to $1,208 million and $594 million, respectively, in the prior year.

Recent Highlights

  • Brookfield Renewable, with its institutional partners, entered into an agreement to acquire a 488 megawatt diversified renewable energy portfolio in Brazil comprising hydroelectric, wind, and biomass generating capacity. The transaction will increase Brookfield Renewable's installed capacity in Brazil by approximately 70% and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015.
  • Brookfield Renewable, with its institutional partners, entered into an agreement to acquire two advanced hydro development projects totaling 47 megawatts, located on the Verde River in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2015. The projects have all permits required to begin construction, which is expected to begin in 2015.
  • In Ireland, the 88 megawatt Knockacummer and 37 megawatt Killhills projects are substantially completed and started generating revenue in the quarter. Our 12 megawatt Glentane 2 project remains on schedule to begin commercial operations in July 2015.
  • During the quarter, Brookfield Renewable completed $1.0 billion of financing activity to refinance existing obligations, extend maturities and enhance its capital structure. Liquidity at year-end remained strong at $1.0 billion, providing the financial resources and flexibility to fund ongoing growth initiatives.

Distribution Declaration

The next quarterly distribution in the amount of $0.415 per LP Unit, is payable on March 31, 2015 to unitholders of record as at the close of business on February 27, 2015. This distribution, 7% higher than last year, is consistent with Brookfield Renewable's policy of targeting a long-term, sustainable distribution in the range of 60% to 70% of FFO, with increases targeted on average at 5% to 9% annually.

The regular quarterly dividends on the Brookfield Renewable Power Preferred Equity Inc. preferred shares have also been declared.

Distribution Currency Option

The quarterly distributions payable on LP Units of Brookfield Renewable Energy Partners are declared in U.S. dollars. Registered and beneficial shareholders who are resident in Canada or the United States may opt to receive their distributions in either U.S. dollars or the Canadian dollar equivalent. Unless they request the Canadian dollar equivalent, shareholders will continue to receive distributions in U.S. dollars (which may be converted for them by the broker or other intermediary, as may currently be the case). The Canadian dollar equivalent of the quarterly distribution will be based on the Bank of Canada noon exchange rate on the record date or, if the record date falls on a weekend or holiday, on the Bank of Canada noon exchange rate of the preceding business day.

Registered shareholders wishing to receive the Canadian dollar distribution equivalent should contact Brookfield Renewable's transfer agent, Computershare Trust Company of Canada, in writing at 100 University Avenue, 8th Floor, Toronto, Ontario M5J 2Y1 or by phone at 1-800-564-6253. Beneficial unitholders (i.e., those holding their LP Units in street name with their brokerage) should contact the broker with whom their units are held.

Distribution Reinvestment Plan

Brookfield Renewable maintains a Distribution Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP") which allows holders of its LP Units who are resident in Canada to acquire additional LP Units by reinvesting all or a portion of their cash distributions without paying commissions. Information on the DRIP, including details on how to enroll, is available on Brookfield Renewable's website at www.brookfieldrenewable.com/DRIP.

Additional information on Brookfield Renewable's distributions and preferred share dividends can be found on its website at www.brookfieldrenewable.com under Investor Relations.
