NPM Capital acquires a majority stake in CT Energy and Ealyze. CT Energy is active in the field of innovative energy management for corporate energy clients. Ealyze, also known as Het Meetbedrijf, installs, manages and maintains smart energy meters for the corporate market.
The acquisitions are a further fulfilment of the investment strategy employed by NPM Capital in the renewable energy sector and follow the majority stake that the investment company acquired in Rooftop Energy (June 2019), Greenspread (February 2020) and Solaris Industria (February 2020). The parties will not disclose any additional financial details about the two transactions.
Jeroen de Haas, former CEO of Eneco and chairman of the group of companies, explains: ‘We are pleased that we can now, very specifically, give further effect to our acquisition agenda which, besides upscaling in terms of renewable generation capacity, also focuses on expanding our services in the energy supply chain. With these acquisitions, we close the energy supply chain, as it were, and bring the generation and consumption of renewable energy as close together as possible. We are convinced that this new way of working and the associated shortening of the chain are the only means to manage an energy system that’s based, to an increasing extent, on decentralised and volatile generation sources close to the consumer.’
With the complete group, De Haas says they will soon make it specifically possible for corporate clients to achieve their own energy transition in the coming years. ‘Robust energy data form the foundation of the required energy transition. In recent years, CT Energy and Ealyze both developed leading propositions in the energy supply chain, with a strong focus on the generation and the strategic use of these data. Right now, within the group, we are hard at work combining the various products and services that we already have, to form an overall proposition that we will inform the corporate market about later this year.’
