World Energy and TZ1 Registry Forge Partnership

    Link to Registry Streamlines Transactions on the World Green Exchange

    NEW YORK AND WORCESTER, MA, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - World Energy Solutions, Inc.
(TSX: XWE), an operator of online exchanges for energy and green commodities,
today partnered with TZ1 Registry, a top global registry and environmental
commodities markets infrastructure provider. The partnership expedites listing
TZ1-registered projects on the World Green Exchange(R), one of North America's
largest primary carbon marketplaces. It also provides buyers access to a deep
new pool of high-quality, registry-linked supply, facilitating simple,
error-free transactions.
    "Carbon market participants from around the world turn to us for key
value added services to make their products more attractive to buyers and
profitable to investors. We view our partnership with World Energy as a
natural extension of this value proposition," said Helen Robinson, CEO of TZ1
Registry. "World Energy's leadership in carbon trading and commitment to
providing carbon market participants what they need to transact with
confidence makes the World Green Exchange a place we recommend to our
customers to better showcase and monetize their projects."
    Added Robert Coulter, President and CEO of Alberta-based Emission Credits
International Corporation (ECIC), an aggregator of carbon offsets and joint
customer of World Energy and TZ1 Registry, "This partnership is great news for
buyers and suppliers of carbon commodities. I have been very satisfied with
the services of both companies, transacting hundreds of thousands of offsets
on the World Green Exchange and listing 2.5 million new carbon credits with
TZ1 Registry. Our industry needs more synergies like this to streamline
transactions and take the complexity and opacity out of carbon trading."
    Concluded Phil Adams, President and COO of World Energy, "Registry
services play a vital role in the trading lifecycle of carbon commodities
through the increased transparency they provide. As such, adding links between
the World Green Exchange and TZ1's global registry is an important
development. This partnership advances World Energy's strategy of teaming with
the top service providers in the carbon market to deliver an unparalleled
end-user experience, one marked by ease of use and seamless transactions."
