The founders and collaborators of Energy Pool bought back all the remaining shares owned by Schneider Electric (25%) allowing Energy Pool to become the world’s largest independent player in the optimization solutions of energy consumption and complex electrical system management.
This shift will lead Energy Pool to reinforce its strategy and independence, to support its clients through every challenge of the energetic transition by optimizing the global design of their complex systems, their consumption patterns, and their energy contracts.
Now, Energy Pool can exclusively focus, only on clients’ interest to provide access to reliable, low-carbon energy at an affordable cost.
“Between 2010 and 2016 Schneider Electric was a major shareholder involved in the construction phase of Energy Pool, becoming a minor shareholder from 2016 alongside the founders and managers, and ensuring our financial autonomy and I salute its support during all these years. The operation announced today allows Energy Pool to acquire the status of a totally independent company, the only one of its size not to be a subsidiary of a large group and to write a new page of its development. This change in capital structure reflects the confidence in our prospects shown by the partners who helped us finance this independence.”
Olivier BAUD, President and Founder of Energy Pool
