Acquisitions in the UK energy services market continued at great pace through 2015. This report analyses the major deals closed throughout 2015 and provides key takeaways for market participants such as energy brokers, energy services specialists, facilities management firms and power utilities. An analysis of M&A activity shows a lot of consolidation amongst energy brokers, utilities remain at the centre of energy services investments and remote management technologies are the hot capability for delivering energy services at scale. Verdantix finds that going forward, market participants looking to make a strategic takeover in the UK energy services market will need to work hard to create any kind of scale – given many of the large independent energy services firms have now been purchased. In addition, Verdantix forecasts there will be a continuing ‘arms race’ amongst energy services firms working with large multi-site firms, to acquire or develop technology platforms that allow better data capture, analytics and remote energy management capabilities.
