               Planning Application for Mynydd Clogau 2 Wind Farm


Novera is pleased to announce it has submitted a planning application for the
proposed Mynydd Clogau 2 Wind Farm, adjacent to the operating Mynydd Clogau Wind
Farm, approximately 10km north west of Newtown in Powys, mid-Wales.

The application is for nineteen wind turbines with an expected capacity of 16MW.

Mynydd Clogau 2 and the four planning applications Novera submitted during 2007
have an aggregate potential capacity of 94-107MW, depending on turbine
selection. Planning decisions for these five applications are expected during
2008.

This latest application further strengthens the Company's ability to achieve its
target of 250MW in production from wind power by the end of 2011.

                                      Ends
