3 Press release European Mobility Week from 17 to 23 September 2012 Electric vehicles Paris, Thursday 20 September 2012 Launch of "INFINI DRIVE" project trials to design a recharge system for electric vehicle fleets Infini Drive is an R&D project aimed at designing the recharge system for new electric vehicle fleets belonging to La Poste group and ERDF. On the occasion of European Mobility Week, the project led by a consortium of eight partners is now being launched in four cities (Paris, Nice, Nantes and Grenoble). The aim is to assist creation of a recharging "standard" for fleets operated by companies and public authorities, thereby fostering the development and roll-out of electric vehicles. Costing around 9.1 million, this project will benefit from 3.5 million in funding from the Future Investments programme run by the ADEME on behalf of the state. A multidisciplinary consortium with a high level of expertise To successfully conduct this R&D project, a consortium was created bringing together experts from the industrial and service sectors, the academic world and research. This top-ranking, multidisciplinary team set itself the objective of adopting a pragmatic and open-ended approach in designing a system for managing recharging infrastructures permitting the economically viable and ecologically sustainable deployment of electric vehicle fleets. As public service companies heavily committed to sustainable development, La Poste group and ERDF initiated this general interest project. The La Poste group will contribute its experience in the field of the sustainable management of fleets and carbon-free vehicles. For its part, ERDF will contribute its expertise in terms of managing the electricity distribution network which it is continually adapting and upgrading in the face of new challenges such as the development of the electric vehicle. Page 3 of 12

4 Already behind the initiative for a group order of electric vehicles which in 2011 led to an initial record order of 18,711 vehicles for several companies (including 10,000 to meet its own requirements), the La Poste group is going one step further by actively participating in the "ecosystem" design for its range of electric vehicles. The development of electric mobility requires the adaptation of electricity networks. Therefore, ERDF as the operator of electricity distribution networks for 95% of mainland France came forward as the natural partner for this project aimed at optimising the connection of recharging terminals and managing them in order to avoid expensive electricity consumption peaks which release CO 2. Moreover, ERDF owns a sizeable fleet of vehicles (25,000 units of which 1,500 to 2,500 electric as stipulated in the purchasing group framework). In addition to the experience of the La Poste group and ERDF, the consortium will benefit from the expertise of Greenovia and DOCAPOST BPO (Extelia), two subsidiaries of the La Poste group, respectively specialised in consultancy and solutions for sustainable mobility and in data management. ERDF will call on the laboratories of EDF R&D for design of recharging power management. A young, innovative company, G 2 Mobility, will produce a prototype of the management system. This consortium also brings together three research laboratories. LORIA-UMR (Mines de Nancy) will determine uses related to the activities of different sectors and the CMA (Applied Mathematics Centre - ARMINES) will study the management mathematical model. The I3M Laboratory at the Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis and the Université du Sud Toulon Var offers its expert input on communicating on change caused by the arrival of electric vehicles. This consortium, coordinated by the Greenovia Company, will actively consult other companies concerned by this project An ambitious project based on local trials. Two million electric vehicles could be on the roads in France by If each user is to be able to recharge their vehicle anywhere, at any time and in complete safety, then the standardisation of recharge systems is a key prerequisite. The objective of the Infini Drive consortium is precisely to develop a recharge system standard for a viable industrial offering. User requirements and practices are at the heart of this R&D project which associates ERDF and La Poste employees with the trials to which they are key contributors. Trials will be held at ERDF and La Poste sites spread between cities presenting different characteristics, namely Grenoble, Nantes, Nice and Paris. Page 4 of 12

5 At the end of the Infini Drive project a "Green paper on recharge infrastructures for captive fleets" will be published along the lines of the green paper for public recharge infrastructures. Its aim is to serve as a reference for companies and public authorities seeking to acquire electric vehicles and appropriate recharge systems For more details of the Infini Drive project, come and meet us during European Mobility Week During European Mobility Week, press conferences will be organised in the four cities hosting the trial sites. This represents an opportunity to present the project and provide a concrete illustration of the recharge systems put in place. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to attend a conference.

6 Editorials Future investments for the development "Infini Drive is an opportunity for ERDF which dovetails seamlessly with the cooperation agreement signed with La Poste on 10 December It is both a committed undertaking to an initiative which underpins ERDF's environmental policy and a means of demonstrating that smart solutions enable recharging of all vehicles while retaining good quality electricity distribution. By bringing together French start-ups, the academic world and two major public service companies, La Poste and ERDF, I am convinced that all of the conditions are in place to make a genuine success of this project and help propose recharging solutions which will supplement the Green paper on public recharging infrastructures for "carbon-free" vehicles established in I therefore give my full backing to this initiative which should make it possible to find a new place for the electric vehicle on the company car market thereby contributing to the switch to a carbon-free economy at a time when the debate on energy transition is in full flow. I offer my sincere thanks to the four regions which have signed up to this R&D project and count on ERDF's long-standing culture of innovation to take it forward." Michèle Bellon, President of the ERDF Executive Board "By ordering no fewer than 10,000 electric vehicles last year, the La Poste group confirmed its keen and abiding interest in this sustainable mobility solution. In fact, this order undoubtedly helped boost the industrial sector by paving the way for its emergence. With Infini Drive we now have the opportunity to go further still. By joining forces with ERDF and combining a total of eight experts from industry, services, academia and research, we have the opportunity and the determination to define the recharging infrastructure model which will become the future benchmark, the standard for public and private players having deployed an electric vehicle fleet. We want this model to be smart, efficient and perfectly in line with modernisation of the networks and the environmental challenges. Our partnership with ERDF, the company with which we already signed a cooperation agreement last December, is therefore entirely logical. This project will be coordinated by Greenovia, our subsidiary with expertise in transport solutions and eco-responsible mobility. Once again, the La Poste group is extremely proud to have actively participated in the development of technologies related to electric vehicles and I would like to thank all of the partners who have agreed to join us on this project." Jean-Paul Bailly, Chief Executive Officer of the La Poste Group Page 6 of 12

DOCAPOST BPO will ensure interoperability of the information systems within the Infini Drive project. To this end, DOCAPOST BPO will develop the necessary interfaces in liaison with the partners concerned. Particular attention will be paid to the architecture to ensure easy intermediation between information systems while ensuring decoupling when necessary to avoid critical incidents spreading between them. In this respect, DOCAPOST BPO will bring the information technology aspect to the project and ensure implementation of a data flow management platform between the different partners and systems deployed (vehicles, smart boxes, ERDF information network, etc.). Furthermore, DOCAPOST BPO will develop interfaces for management of electric vehicles: Management of the fleet, economic and ecological assessment, operational monitoring. The I3M Laboratory "Information, milieux, media, mediation" The I3M Laboratory is an information and communication science laboratory at the Université de Nice - Sophia Antipolis and the Université du Sud - Toulon - Var. Its aim is to ensure a collective review of technical, social and cultural changes, human interactions and man-machine interactions, based on studies of concrete objects, on the micro social scale. Socio-technical communication procedures are therefore central to its project, particularly those which are in keeping with the socio-ecological transition policies of companies and regional authorities. Commentaire [MC2]: NdT : on parle de " milieux " en anglais dans certains contextes. Ici, on peut se permettre de le garder The I3M Laboratory brings an original and complementary dimension to the Infini Drive project i.e. the socio-cultural aspect and, naturally, elements related to information and communication of practices. It will question the relevance and efficiency, both collective and individual, of procedures to assist change which are able to foster the social acceptance of innovations and new behaviours among user employees required by the pro-environmental technological changes of the vehicle of the future tested by the other partners.
