All amounts in this release are expressed in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.

Q3 2014 Highlights

--  The Trust's projects, namely Rott, Zagra and Suha, generated an
    aggregate of 1545 MWh of energy, resulting in revenues of $130,290
    during the quarter.
--  Rott generated 1,290 MWh of energy, resulting in revenues of $83,212
    during the quarter. Rott experienced 100% availability during the
    period, but hydrology levels were below expectations.
--  Two of the three Zagra power plants were fully commissioned in September
    2014.
--  Suha commissioned 4 of 6 power plants at the end of the quarter with the
    5th commissioned in October 2014 and the 6th expected to be commissioned
    by mid-December.
--  Plan to optimize plant communication and controls was implemented across
    the entire portfolio of projects to improve availability and efficiency.
--  Declared and paid unit distribution based on an annualized basis of
    $0.0875 per unit or an 8.75% yield based on a $1.00 initial issuance
    price. The distribution was paid in cash in the amount of $50,257 on
    October 15, 2014 with the remaining $195,814 of distributions payable
    being settled through the issuance of Units pursuant to the Trust's
    distribution reinvestment plan.

J. Colter Eadie, Chief Executive Officer of Transeastern commented, "During the third quarter we have consolidated our operational and management team as we have transitioned from the closing of the successful initial public offering in May 2014 to our roles as operators and managers. The team has worked hard to complete the necessary maintenance and start operating the projects. Most of the critical capital expenditures required to advance our portfolio to steady state production have been completed. Our focus will now shift to the application of best practice operational management to maximize the availability of the projects going forward."

Mr. Eadie concluded, "With Transeastern, we have taken the first steps in the development of a world class management platform that will continue to develop and operate renewable energy assets globally. We have been actively seeking acquisition opportunities for renewable projects throughout Europe in order to grow our business on an accretive basis while minimizing risk through diversification. Our goal is to become a vertically integrated energy player in Europe and beyond while creating long-term value for unitholders."

About Transeastern

The Trust, through its direct and indirect subsidiaries in Canada, the Netherlands and Romania, has been formed to acquire interests in renewable energy assets in Romania, other countries in Europe and abroad that can provide stable cash flow to the Trust and a suitable risk-adjusted return on investment. The Trust seeks to provide investors with long-term, stable distributions, while preserving the capital value of its investment portfolio through investment, principally in a range of operational assets, which generate electricity from renewable energy sources, with a particular focus on hydroelectric power.

The Trust intends to qualify as a "mutual fund trust" under the Income Tax Act (Canada) (the "Tax Act"). The Trust will not be a "SIFT trust" (as defined in the Tax Act), provided that the Trust complies at all times with its investment restriction which precludes the Trust from holding any "non-portfolio property" (as defined in the Tax Act).

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector.

Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed.

When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
