Four Rivers (operating as Verta Energy) Appoints Leading UK Renewable Energy Experts

LONDON, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Four Rivers BioEnergy Inc. (OCTBB: FRBE & OTCQB: FRBE) today announced that it has entered into a professional advisory contract with TradeLink Solutions Ltd., a specialist in obtaining accreditation from the UK energy regulator to produce renewable energy.

TradeLink has had a working relationship with the UK energy regulator for many years. They have successfully obtained accreditation for over 450 renewable projects, including working on the approval processes for at least five Liquid Biomass Projects.

TradeLink also has acted as advisor and negotiator for a number of Power Purchase Agreements  in the renewable energy sector, as well as operating its own trading platform for Renewable Obligation Certificates  in the UK.

Stephen Padgett, Four Rivers Chief Executive Officer commented: "We are very pleased to have appointed TradeLink as our professional advisor. Having already announced the planning consent from the local authority to proceed with our Waste to Energy project at the end of 2010, we are now well poised to complete the remaining approval and permitting processes working with such highly experienced advisors."

Mr Padgett went on to say: "TradeLink's extensive commercial experience  will strengthen the ability of our team to negotiate very attractive deals for the sale of renewable electricity, through structured Power Purchase Agreements. Their experience in hedging out appropriate levels of risk in revenue streams such as Renewable Obligation Certificates, will also add significant value."
