AlsoEnergy merges with skytron, will now manage more than 18 GW of renewable energy


AlsoEnergy is making big moves. First came word of its Draker acquisition, and now it is merging with skytron energy, one of Europe’s leading solar software and hardware companies. These combined forces make up a global leader for renewable energy monitoring, controls, and asset management solutions. Together, the companies will combine their business operations to offer a global footprint with leading software, hardware, and control solutions for solar, wind, and storage assets (now totaling more than 18 GW worldwide).

“The merger of AlsoEnergy and skytron enables us to provide our customers and marketplace with the industry’s most complete platform for the management of renewable energy assets,” said Bob Schaefer, Chief Executive Officer of 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.”
