Non-GAAP Financial Metrics This presentation includes financial measures not prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), including Adjusted EBITDA, which is supplemental financial information that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Our management uses non- GAAP financial measures for business planning purposes and in measuring our performance relative to that of our competitors. Our management believes that presenting non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful information to investors in understanding our operating results and may enhance investors’ ability to analyze financial and business trends. In addition, our management believes that non-GAAP financial measures allow investors to compare our results period to period more easily by excluding items that could have a disproportionately negative or positive impact on results in any particular period. However, this non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP measures and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) as a measure of financial performance, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. The presentation non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for our results as reported under GAAP. For example, because not all companies use identical calculations, the presentations of these measures may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and can differ significantly from company to company. Please refer to this presentation for additional information regarding non-GAAP measures, including reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this presentation to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

© ENERGY VAULT – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Enabling a Renewable World 12 Variable Renewable Energy Sy st em C ha rg in g System D ischarging Stored Energy Dispatched PHYSICS FUNDAMENTALS Kinetic energy is the energy which a body possesses by virtue of being in motion. Potential energy is energy stored in an object that can be released under the right conditions. Gravitational Force accounts for the attraction that pulls objects to the center of the earth. HOW EVx WORKS When renewable energy generation is high, EVx motors raise 30-ton bricks to an elevated position. Potential energy is stored in the elevation gain of the brick. When energy is needed, EVx releases kinetic energy to the grid via controlled lowering of the blocks under gravitational force. Energy Vault Gravity-Based Energy Storage Solutions employ a mechanical process to store and dispatch electricity, on demand. Gravity-Based Energy Storage System


 
© ENERGY VAULT – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED Enabling a Renewable World 13 The EVx System 1 2 3 4The FOUNDATION is built by the EPC (engineering, procurement, construction) to local building code standards; depth and area specifications vary based on the size of the unit and the geology of the site. The FIXED FRAME structure is built by the EPC and is made with high- performance pre-cast concrete and steel reinforcement. The MOBILE MASSES are 30 ton composite bricks constructed onsite from locally sourced soil, waste, and composite materials. The LIFTING SYSTEM comprised of • Trolleys • Elevators • Power Supply • Motors / Generators • Control Box • Active Front End / Variable Frequency Drive 1 2 3 4 Fully Charged Structure height of 147m Footprint of the system scales linearly, for example with a 20 MW / 80 MWh system having a footprint of approx. 80m x 86m while a 20 MW / 160 MWh system would have a footprint of approx. 80m x 166m Energy Density ~= 120m2/MWh Can fully discharge, or recharge within 3 seconds Asset life 35-40 years or higher Fully Discharged
