WWW.ROBOTINAICO.COM 2 SAVE ELECTRICITY. SAVE MONEY. SAVE THE PLANET. Robotina is an European company with 28 years of experience, employing over 50 experts in the development of smart technologies for the energy industry. Our main expertise is the optimization of smart electrical grids. We envision the future based on the products and solutions, developed by our key experts, who are members of two research and development (R&D) teams, one of them registered as an institute. Our products, services and technologies have all been developed “in-house” by our experienced team of technicians and engineers. As a company committed to excellence, we have obtained 7 patents and 5 international certificates relating to our technologies. We have successfully implemented our projects in 25 countries and have more than 1 million connected points worldwide today. Our production facilities are in Slovenia and in order to be close to our customers we have offices in UK, Singapore, Croatia, Dubai (UAE) and India. 50 28 02 01 25 Employees Years of Research and Status of Countries with experience development teams Approved Institute our projects 07 05 1M 06 Registered International connected Offices (SLO, CRO, UK, India, patents Certificates points Dubai (UAE), Singapore) Electricity is one of the key energy sources, probably the most important one. The ever higher price of electricity, unstable electrical networks as well as growing consumption of electrical energy, seriously endangers our lifestyle and natural environment. The price of electricity is significantly influenced by the uncontrolled peaks in the network/grid. For example, when a higher number of customers use the electricity at the same time. This means a constant demand for enlarged electricity production – also the case when it is actually not needed at all. The surplus of electricity

WWW.ROBOTINAICO.COM 3 goes to waste if not used immediately. Equally important as the surpluses, there are the deficits of electrical energy in the network, which means that the electricity has to be bought at much higher prices than normally. All of the above problems are influenced by (1) unstable sources, such as solar and wind power plants that produce the electricity only when the weather is favorable, (2) electric vehicles as new type of random load and (3) the current technology, which hasn’t enabled a price-favorable storage facility of larger quantities of electrical energy yet. CONSUMPTION PRICE (TWh) Cents / kWh THE PROBLEMS: THE PROBLEMS RESULT IN: - Electric energy network is outdated - Growing electrical energy price - Small fluctuations destabilize the network - Growing electrical energy consumption - Electricity costs = generation costs + - Cost of keeping the grid stable can be as transport costs + stability assurance costs (peaks) high as 30 % of electricity cost Sources: 1.

WWW.ROBOTINAICO.COM 4 ENERGY BILL OPTIMIZATION WITH ROBOTINA PLATFORM INTERNET OF THINGS + ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE + BLOCKCHAIN Applying several state-of-the–art technologies, the Robotina Platform reduces electric energy consumption, lowers electricity costs and optimizes the functioning of the entire electricity grid by monitoring and controlling real-time electricity consumption and distributed production. Thus it (1) manages the devices and (2) collects and processes the data from platform users. This data is then offered to the network operators or electric energy producers. Using smart technology the Robotina Platform solution will help you optimize the consumption of electricity by automatically turning off a device when in use (but not needed) or switching it on when the tariff is cheapest. Additionally, you will earn money by allowing power consumption flexibility to the grid and by collaborating in group buying, power trade, aggregated data sales, crowd financing and by activities in the platform’s marketplace. Last but not least, you will significantly contribute to a greener environment and sustainable development of mankind.

WWW.ROBOTINAICO.COM 5 EXPLANATION OF KEY PLATFORM CONCEPTS 1. GROUP BUYING 2. POWER TRADE Users of the platform will be aggregated Selling electricity to the highest bidder when the to carry out a group purchase of network needs it. This is implemented in such a electricity. More than 1,000 or more way that for a short time a large number of users than 10,000 users will have a stronger agree a device or devices is/are turned off. Only negotiating position regarding the those devices that do not affect the quality of price than if they negotiated separately living are switched off - e.g. the boiler turns off for with the providers. 5 min, heat pump for 10 min, etc. 3. AGGREGATED DATA SELL Data collected and processed by the platform will be sold (1) electricity distributors so that they can better plan the amount of electricity they need for their customers, (2) electricity producers, (3) advertisers, etc. 4. CROWD FINANCING 5. MARKETPLACE Supported by the community, the funds for financing equipment The marketplace is the central for larger facilities (B2B) are raised within the platform. The business area of the platform. Community is therefore rewarded on the basis of collecting the All the transactions happen in majority of the savings gained on the facility. the marketplace.

WWW.ROBOTINAICO.COM 6 ALL OF THE ABOVE IS POSSIBLE BY THE FOLLOWING TECHNOLOGIES COMBINED: The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of intelligent connected devices, digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. The artificial intelligence (AI) is a systematic search through a range of possible energy optimization solutions in order to reach some predefined goals of the platform’s user. AI is the brains of the Robotina’s platform which cracks the real time smart grid data into valuable information and provides the rewards to its members. Blockchain is a decentralized ledger which hosts a number of smart contracts triggered between different parties and a definitive contract is produced that can’t be disputed. The individuals involved are anonymous, but the contract is public on a decentralized ledger. Transactions are encrypted.

WWW.ROBOTINAICO.COM 7 HOW DO I SAVE? STEP 1: You receive the Energy Management System (EMS) hardware device. It’s a smart Internet of Things (IoT) device that senses the energy consumption and behavior of your electrical appliances. After the installation, it immediately starts sending data to and receiving data from Robotina Platform. STEP 2: You are connected! You save up to 30 % on electricity bills by using the EMS connected to the platform. Internet of Things (IoT) sensors across the entire energy network from producer > distributor > consumer – to optimize the network and brings you savings from an optimal ‘energy value chain’. Using the Artificial Intelligence (AI) the Robotina Platform operates your electric devices so that it switches them on when the price of electricity is lowest and turns them off when electricity is more expensive or when the need for the electricity in the network is higher. STEP 3: Robotina Smart Grid platform collects anonymous energy data 24/7. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the platform collects and processes the data sent by EMS device to identify the historical data patterns such as when and how many times the boiler, air conditioner, heat pump, etc. is switched on. AI uses weather forecasts and energy price data to optimize your expenses. STEP 4: Additional savings based on collaboration. The Community benefits from all transactions on the Robotina Platform. The majority of the earnings generated by group buying, power trade (which stabilizes the grid), aggregated data sales and crowd financing will be allocated to pool awarding most active community members. STEP 5: Robotina Utility Token (ROX) is the platform’s utility token, used in all transactions within the platform. You can pay for the products and services on the platform also with other tokens, coins or fiat money, but you will only receive a special discount and enjoy other utility benefits, when paying with ROX.
