More and more, today’s leading construction companies are gaining access to the full range of energy management services. And they know that compliance is only the first step to true energy management. Merging of competencies translates to widespread efficiencies, to more buildings, and the capacity to manage energy on a deeper level at those buildings.

Bright Power Inc., www.brightpower.com, New York, N.Y, has acquired Ecological Partners, a cybersecurity and regulatory risk mitigation company. As a leading provider of strategic energy solutions for real estate portfolios across the country, Bright Power provides energy benchmarking and auditing to resiliency solutions and energy procurement. The acquisition of Ecological Partners, with a primary focus of energy-related local law compliance, enables Bright Power to enhance its existing business while continuing to expand its robust product offerings.

This is an exciting moment to incorporate a competitor, grow the team, and cement market position, according to Jeff Perlman, president and CEO, Bright Power. Ecological is a natural addition to Bright Power’s strategic vision, he adds, taking them beyond compliance and into long-term energy management solutions.

And Bright Power views Ecological’s success in the compliance market as a stepping stone to more in-depth energy efficiency projects. With the addition of Ecological’s client base, Bright Power now provides local law compliance services to more than 1,000 buildings in New York City.

“This is a big win for our clients who are now gaining access to the full range of energy management services that Bright Power provides. While we have built a business on local law compliance services, we’ve realized that compliance is only the first step to true energy management. The joining of our two companies means we will not only reach more buildings, but also that we will have the capacity to manage energy on a deeper level at those buildings,” said Tim Howell, vice president, Ecological.
