Qonnectis plc

Major new orders won

                                 Qonnectis plc

              Major customer wins in new market sectors in the UK

Qonnectis plc ('Qonnectis'), the energy and water conservation IT services
provider, announces that it has won orders from and begun deliveries to two
major UK customers in new market sectors.

Local authority caravan parks

A UK national water conservation consultancy has introduced Qonnectis' remote
meter reading and myMeter web services to caravan parks on behalf of its local
authority customers. This will allow the local authority to remotely read and
analyse the water consumption of these traditionally high consumption sites,
thus enabling maximised water efficiency and minimised leakage. The first
installations are taking place with a major county council in England. County
councils typically have several thousand council buildings and sites under their
responsibility for water and energy use.

Emergency services

A large UK emergency services authority with over 100 sites is also beginning
multi-site use of Qonnectis' products and services. This is a true added-value,
multi-utility solution encompassing water, gas and electricity smart metering,
whereby the authority's meters will be read automatically every 15 to 30 minutes
for energy and water efficiency purposes. Emergency services represent another
new market segment for Qonnectis.

Both of the above organisations chose Qonnectis because they saw the inherent
value-add in its smart metering solution, which allows energy and water
consumption data to be communicated remotely and securely from multiple highly
dispersed sites throughout the UK back to a central data centre and to be made
accessible via simple web interfaces.

Qonnectis now has over 45 national and international utilities, end user
businesses and public sector organisations utilising the system, and enquiry
levels remain high.

Michael Tapia, Chief Executive, stated:

'We are extremely pleased that these new customers have selected Qonnectis to
help them meet their water and energy efficiency objectives.  It is further
testimony to the fact that many public sector organisations are seeking to make
real financial savings in terms of their energy and water consumption, whilst
simultaneously benefiting the environment.

'We look forward to assisting these and the many other organisations who have
expressed an interest in our technologies in achieving their goals and in
propagating the solution throughout their sites.'

                                                              26th April 2006

Editors' note - About Qonnectis

Qonnectis' patented technologies enable the analysis of remote meter data to
facilitate water leakage control, customer profiling, and energy and water
management efficiency. Its products are already being used by a wide range of UK
and overseas utilities including Scottish Water, Cambridge Water, Aquavitae,
Generale des Eaux and Lyonnaise des Eaux as well as large commercial and
domestic users of energy or water.

The iStaq family of products work by sending meter readings to Qonnectis' secure
data centre via SMS text messaging over the GSM network. The data is then
aggregated and published online via utility-branded 'myMeter' websites operated
by Qonnectis. The data can also be sent directly to utilities' billing systems.
Customers can access real-time information via a web browser using the 'myMeter'
service. For more information, please visit
