Nesscap Energy Inc. ("Nesscap") (TSX VENTURE: NCE), a global leader in
research, development and manufacturing of ultracapacitor products, is
pleased to announce that the Company has signed an agreement to supply
ultracapacitors valued at USD $3.2 million.

    The agreement with Trainelec, a subsidiary of Spanish based CAF
(, a world-class railway vehicle manufacturer, calls for
Nesscap to supply product with the option of increasing the order size by
20%. This contract follows previous orders stemming from a development
contract with CAF in early 2007. The order is scheduled to be fulfilled
through 2011.

    "As a result of this latest contract, Nesscap will become the world's
largest ultracapacitor supplier to the tram industry," said Dr. Sunwook
Kim, Chief Executive Officer of Nesscap Energy Inc. "As a result of our
focused development work for more than ten years with many global
companies for diverse applications, we are now seeing strong growth in
commercial orders."

    Nesscap's ultracapacitors will be used in trams serving major cities in
Spain. Ultracapacitor-based energy storage systems enable light rail
vehicles or trams to travel without overhead power lines or catenary
power. Specifically, this system allows electrical power catenary to be
installed locally at the passenger stops, and, when the vehicle stops,
the ultracapacitor energy storage system is fully charged in about 25
seconds. This provides enough energy for the vehicle to reach the next
stop on the route with remarkable traction and auxiliary power
performances. Ultracapacitors can help reduce the energy consumption of a
light rail or metro system by up to 30% by storing the energy released
when braking and using this energy during the next acceleration of the
vehicle. Moreover, lower peak current demand means that fewer substations
are needed and they can be further apart, which reduces infrastructure
