Notice of AGM

SDCL Energy E ciency Income Trust plc announces that the Annual General Meeting (" AGM ") will be held on 10 August 2021 at 2.00 pm BST at 5(th) Floor, 1 Vine Street, London, W1J0AH.

The Notice of the 2021 Annual General Meeting and Proxy form have been posted to shareholders today and are available at www.seeitplc.com/investors/#latestPublication .

They have also been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.

Impact of COVID-19 uncertainty on the AGM

Despite recent announcements by the UK government that the majority of COVID-19 restrictions on travelling and gatherings will come to an end on 19 July 2021, the Board considers that there remains a degree of uncertainty around the relaxation of restrictions and what this means for the holding of general meetings going forward. In addition, it remains the Board's priority to ensure the health and wellbeing of all stakeholders during these uncertain times and given that restrictions may be tightened at relatively short notice, recognise this may prevent Shareholders from attending the AGM. Accordingly, the Board strongly encourages Shareholders not to attend the AGM in person, and strongly encourages all Shareholders to vote on the resolutions to be proposed at the AGM. The Board expects that the AGM will be functional in format, attended only by those necessary to form a quorum, which will be facilitated by the Company.

Request not to attend in person and process for submitting questions

Given these circumstances, shareholders are strongly encouraged to exercise their votes by submitting their proxy electronically or by post. A proxy form has been provided to enable you to vote in respect of the Resolutions in accordance with the instructions and return it to Computershare Investor Services PLC, The Pavilions, Bridgwater Road, Bristol, BS99 6ZY, United Kingdom, as soon as possible and in any event so that it is received no later than 2.00 pm BST on Friday, 6 August 2021.

As an alternative to completing the hard-copy proxy form, you can appoint a proxy electronically by visiting www.eproxyappointment.com. You will be asked to enter the Control Number, the Shareholder Reference Number and PIN and agree to certain terms and conditions. These details can be found on the form of proxy. Members may also appoint a proxy through the CREST electronic proxy appointment service as described in note 14 of the Notice to the AGM.

The Board understands that beyond voting on the formal business of the meeting, the AGM also serves as a forum for Shareholders to raise questions and comments to the Board. Therefore, registered Shareholders and their corporate representatives or proxies are invited to ask any questions of the Board by submitting questions by email. We will aim to respond to all questions submitted in this way. Shareholders may submit questions by email to SEEIT@sannegroup.com . Please ensure that all questions are submitted no later than 2.00 pm BST on Friday, 6 August 2021.
