We are delighted to welcome ERS which will further strengthen our capabilities.
OAKLAND, CA, United States, 26 January 2021 – DNV GL has acquired U.S. based engineering consultancy Energy and Resource Solutions, Inc. (ERS), which helps organisations to manage and reduce energy costs through program design, outreach, implementation and evaluation services.
The growing need to transform energy markets across all sectors and decarbonize energy supply make this acquisition both timely and crucial. The combination of the two companies’ expertise and services creates a unified team that will partner with global customers to address and accelerate the energy transition.
ERS works with utilities, governments and large commercial and industrial end users to solve complex energy and resource problems. Headquartered in North Andover, Massachusetts, the firm also has operations in California, Connecticut, Maine, New York, Oregon and Texas. DNV GL is a global energy adviser, assurance and risk management specialist, operational in over 100 countries, supporting a range of sectors to decarbonize faster.
Richard Barnes, region president, Energy North America at DNV GL – Energy said: “Helping all energy users, whether they are large industries or individuals, change how and how much energy they use is one of the fastest, lowest-investment approaches to reducing carbon emissions, and we need to ensure that the rates of adoption speed up, especially in areas such as manufacturing and building design.
“The values, ambitions, and dedication to accelerating the energy transition that we share made the decision to join with ERS simple and clear. Our leadership teams both saw where we complement each other, where we each bring in new abilities and services, and see many opportunities to provide our customers with expanded expertise and insights.”
