Navigant (NYSE: NCI) announced it has acquired Ecofys, an international consultancy based in Europe with a leading position in the fields of energy and sustainability.
The addition of 150 Ecofys consulting professionals enhances Navigant’s capabilities and solution offerings, providing additional expertise in the areas of energy policy, climate strategies and policies, energy systems and markets, urban energy, and sustainability services. With this acquisition, Navigant further strengthens and expands its position as a leading global energy consultancy.
“Ecofys has a strong reputation as a premier provider of energy consulting services,” said Jan Vrins, managing director and leader of Navigant’s Energy segment. “The addition of Ecofys strengthens Navigant’s energy solutions to our clients, creating robust capabilities for governments, utility companies, industry, and new entrants to effectively respond to and capitalize on the global transformation within the energy sector.”
Headquartered in the Netherlands, Ecofys began as a pioneer in sustainability consulting more than 30 years ago. Formerly a wholly owned subsidiary of Eneco, one of Europe’s leading sustainable energy companies, Ecofys’ work has led to prestigious honors, including the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for contributions on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and the 2008 Erasmus Innovation Award.
“We live in a world of rapidly changing energy demand and supply against a background of significant climate-related and economic challenges,” says Thijs Aarten, CEO and managing director of Ecofys. “Together with Navigant, our deep, combined expertise in strategy and implementation will enable our clients to adapt to the ongoing energy and climate transition.”
Jeroen de Haas, CEO of Eneco Group added, “I’m pleased with the acquisition of Ecofys by Navigant. Ecofys has been part of Eneco Group since 2009 and has grown into an internationally acknowledged energy and sustainability consultancy. Ecofys has delivered value to Eneco and I am confident that with Navigant, it will continue to thrive.”
