The acquisition marks another milestone in Dalkia's business development in the US. The combined expertise of Groom Energy Solutions and Aegis Energy Services will allow Dalkia to offer US customers a wider range of services to step up their sustainable energy performance.
Aegis Energy Services designs, installs and operates small-scale gas fired CHP systems in the Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic United States. It has a varied portfolio of customers in the hospitality, healthcare and multi-unit residential markets and has been developing its small-scale Combined Heat Power (CHP) offerings for more than 30 years.
The acquisition of Aegis Energy Services will allow Dalkia to strengthen its position in the US, where the subsidiary Groom Energy Solutions already provides energy-efficiency solutions for business and industry. Aegis Energy Services will expand Dalkia's offering and allow the group to develop innovative solutions to manage the energy performance of buildings.
The entire Aegis Energy Services management team and its President, Lee Vardakas, will continue to run and develop the company as part of the Dalkia Group.
"I am delighted to welcome Aegis Energy Services employees to the Dalkia Group. I believe their scope for innovation and expertise in energy efficiency will be the perfect addition to our business and will bring real added value to Dalkia's energy services offering in the United States. "
Sylvie Jehanno, Chairwoman of the Dalkia SA Board & Chief Executive Officer
"We are very proud to join the Dalkia Group, as we share a drive to build a cleaner world through high energy efficiency. Energy savings are part of our core business, and we believe this merger will help us to achieve our common goals."
