May 15, 2019 – Houston, TX – ENGIE North America Inc. today announced the acquisition of Genbright LLC of Hingham, MA, a company pioneering the integration of distributed energy resources into wholesale electricity markets. The purchase enables ENGIE and its DER businesses, including ENGIE Storage, to further the adoption and growth of DERs within markets throughout the United States.

 

ENGIE Storage has been working with Genbright since 2017 to unlock the full potential of energy storage by establishing the capability to deliver valuable competitive services into wholesale electricity markets. ENGIE’s purchase of Genbright enables the full integration of wholesale market bidding, scheduling, and dispatch optimization capabilities into ENGIE Storage’s GridSynergy® platform. Genbright currently manages a portfolio of more than 50 MW of DERs, including front and behind-the-meter solar, demand response and energy storage, using its proprietary wholesale market platform. The purchase was finalized on May 10, 2019.

“This acquisition coupled with ENGIE Energy Marketing NA’s power market operations allow ENGIE Storage to deliver co-optimized energy storage services seamlessly that span from behind-the-meter peak demand shaving and energy arbitrage to in-front-of the-meter wholesale electricity market capacity, energy, and ancillary services, all from a single energy storage asset,” said Christopher Tilley, chief executive officer of ENGIE Storage. “This unique, integrated capability allows us to unlock significant additional value for our customers.”

Distributed energy storage and grid storage can improve the reliability, resiliency, and stability of the electricity grid, and enable the adoption of more renewable energy resources such as wind and solar. Recognizing these benefits, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued an order for electric grid operators across the country to establish rules allowing the full participation of energy storage resources in regional wholesale electricity markets. ENGIE’s acquisition of Genbright ensures that ENGIE Storage is positioned to deliver capacity, energy and ancillary services effectively in markets operated by Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators as these rules are rolled out across the United States.

“This acquisition paves the path toward realizing the stacked-value stream potential of energy storage referred to by so many in the energy industry,” said Tim Larrison, chief financial officer of ENGIE Storage who along with Tilley will serve as a director on the Genbright board. “Working with Genbright will further support both ENGIE Storage’s market offerings and asset management of ENGIE North America’s generation portfolio.”

“ENGIE has played a leading role in market development from shaping policy to new business models designed to get more storage on the grid.” said Joseph G. Crespo, chief executive officer from Genbright. “We look forward to supporting ENGIE North America’s energy storage and generation portfolio.”

ENGIE North America Inc. today announced it has signed an agreement to acquire SoCore Energy, a fully-integrated developer, owner, and operator of municipal/co-op solar, community solar, and commercial and industrial (C&I) solar projects with a footprint across the United States. The acquisition includes 150 MW of solar assets in operation or under construction by March 31, 2018, 170 MW of solar projects in late-stage development, as well as projects combining battery storage elements.

Headquartered in Chicago, SoCore’s capabilities span project origination and development, engineering, project financing, procurement, project management, and operations management. The company has approximately 70 employees.

Municipalities, utilities, and corporations in the U.S. are increasingly seeking clean energy sources of power, both utility-scale and decentralized, as well as services to run their facilities more reliably and efficiently with fewer carbon emissions and lower costs. ENGIE has been working to expand its offerings in North America to address these needs. SoCore will be a key piece of ENGIE’s solution set for current and future customers. ENGIE intends to retain SoCore’s personnel and Chicago-based headquarters. The combined ENGIE and SoCore team will be working together to complete development and construction of the late-stage SoCore portfolio, and will continue to own and operate those projects following commercial operation to support the increasing demand in the U.S. for renewable energy and more broadly the United States’ transition to a cleaner electrical system.

September 15, 2017 – Houston, TX – ENGIE North America today announced that it has acquired six mechanical services companies from the Talen Energy Group. The companies, B-G Mechanical Contractors, B-G Mechanical Services, Elmsford Sheet Metal Works, Inc., Fred Williams, Inc., H.T. Lyons, and TryState Mechanical are based in Pennsylvania, New York, and New England and together employ 750 people.

 

This acquisition provides ENGIE a platform to deliver mechanical contracting services to commercial and industrial and public sector customers in a dynamic region characterized by high energy intensity and seasonal demand, with a complementary commercial and regulatory framework that supports energy efficiency and carbon reduction. These companies have direct relationships with owners and operators of complex mechanical systems to provide them with a single point of contact for a range of services including:

  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)/Plumbing system design, build, and installation;
  • HVAC service and preventative maintenance (including inspections, cleaning, and replacement of critical systems);
  • Energy efficiency solutions (computer-aided design, implementation of energy efficiency controls and equipment);
  • Plant maintenance and process piping;
  • Building Management Systems (BMS) and Building Information Modeling (BIM); and
  • Sheet Metal

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment consumes a substantial portion of energy in commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings (up to approximately 40%), prompting growth in demand for operations and maintenance services to optimize systems or replace them all together with more efficient ones. In addition to designing, building, and installing new systems, ENGIE’s objective is to grow the recurring operation and maintenance services of this six company platform by leveraging ENGIE’s O&M expertise. As well, ENGIE will look to cross sell other ENGIE North America C&I energy solutions to these companies’ customers which span the technology, healthcare, commercial/office, industrial, and institutional sectors.

“The skillset of the Talen Energy Group companies expands our ability to develop customer-centric energy services for commercial, industrial, institutional, and public sector customers in a key region for ENGIE North America,” said ENGIE North America President and CEO Frank Demaille. “I look forward to having our 750 new colleagues join our efforts to continue to build our business here in North America and make a positive difference for a new range of customers.”
