AlsoEnergy and skytron have merged to create a global renewable energy software and hardware monitoring firm.
The newly expanded company has also acquired US solar monitoring firm Draker Corporation. AlsoEnergy will have more than 18GW of assets under its management. In February of this year the pair announced a strategic partnership ahead of the deal.
“The merger of AlsoEnergy and skytron enables us to provide our customers and the marketplace with the industry’s most complete platform for the management of renewable energy assets,” said Bob Schaefer, CEO, AlsoEnergy. “With skytron’s proven utility-scale technologies and AlsoEnergy’s strong commercial, industrial and utility presence, we can now offer our customers complete coverage for all types of assets.
“This strategic investment strengthens our global portfolio of best-in-class PV and storage performance management services for the C&I and utility-scale segments,” he added.
The combined entities have a global footprint across software, hardware and control solutions for solar, wind, and storage assets.
Following the successful launch of Energy Storage Summit USA, we are pleased to announce its return for a 2nd year. Renowned for its quality, breadth and expertise, this event features an all-encompassing range of strategic and technical sessions on the adoption and deployment of storage. Key market drivers such as the falling price of lithium-ion batteries, investment in electric vehicle infrastructure, FERC Order 841, government incentives, grid modernization, transition from dependency on the networks to a desire for autonomy and intermittent renewable sources, all add to an exciting time for the Energy Storage value chain.
