Eguana Doubles Bi-Direx Unit Shipments in Fourth Quarter

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 6, 2014) - Eguana Technologies Inc (TSX VENTURE:EGT), ("Eguana" or the "Company") a leading supplier of high performance power controls for grid edge energy storage applications is pleased to announce that it has doubled unit shipments of its leading Bi-Direx power control system during the fourth quarter of this year continuing a steady upward trend in shipments. Following a Third Quarter total of 399 units, 800 Bi-Direx power electronics sub-assemblies, in power ratings of 1.8kW, 2.5kW, 3.5kW and 5 KW, were manufactured and shipped from the Company's facilities in Germany and Canada during its Fourth Quarter; related magnetic components are shipped directly from China.

"Demand for Bi-Direx in the European solar self consumption market continues to accelerate based on the successful launch of the Sonnenbatterie "ECO" product in June of this year," commented Justin Holland, COO of Eguana. "Since launching the Bi-Direx platform in June 2013, we have shipped more than 1,700 units for the German solar self consumption markets positioning Eguana as the market leader in this growing segment. We estimate that Sonnenbatterie took about 25% of the total market in Germany over the past 12 months, a market share which we expect they will improve with the new ECO."

EUPD a leading research agency has indicated that it expects demand in Germany alone to grow to 40,000 units annually in 2016; and to more than 100,000 units annually by 2018. Significantly, EUPD estimates that the retrofit market, where Eguana has key competitive advantages, will represent 70% of the total residential market.
