Jun 01, 2010, 08:00 ET from American DG Energy Inc.

WALTHAM, Mass. June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American DG Energy Inc., (NYSE Amex: ADGE) a leading On-Site Utility offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to hospitality, healthcare, housing and athletic facilities, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized expansion of operations into European markets, based on the positive results of a study the Company commissioned earlier this year.  

"The results of our study reveal that the European markets, being more mature and proactive in energy efficiency, are ready for our On-Site Utility energy solution," said John Hatsopoulos, CEO of American DG Energy.  "European businesses are actively seeking energy savings and environmentally friendly technologies due to various mandates.  The availability of capital is still very tight, therefore, our no cost, no responsibility, no risk, just savings solution might be the perfect fit. We believe this is an excellent opportunity for our Company."

In addition, the equipment the Company plans to market in Europe, the InVerde® 100 kW combined heat and power (CHP) module by Tecogen Inc., has been successfully evaluated and tested for European CE Mark compliance.  All InVerde shipments to Europe will now have CE Marking, along with a Declaration of Conformity (DoC).

On-Site Utility

American DG Energy sells the energy produced on-site from a combined heat and power (CHP) system to an individual property as an alternative to the outright sale of energy equipment.  On-Site Utility customers only pay for the energy produced by the CHP system and receive a guaranteed discount rate on the price of the energy.  All system capital, installation and operating expenses are paid by American DG Energy.  All system installation, operation and support are handled by the Company as well.
