Stem announced it will acquire solar asset management software AlsoEnergy for $695 million.
The transaction will combine Stem’s energy storage optimization capabilities with AlsoEnergy’s solar asset performance monitoring and control software to deliver a more comprehensive solution for renewable energy projects. In addition, Stem will offer its smart energy storage solutions to AlsoEnergy’s existing front-of-meter and commercial and industrial customers, who generally have limited storage attachment to their solar assets today. AlsoEnergy will gain earlier visibility into solar + storage projects through Stem’s extensive customer and partner network.
“Through this immediately accretive transaction, a combined Stem and AlsoEnergy will bring the unique software, controls, and analytics capability to accelerate the energy transition to a renewable, decarbonized future. As the battery storage and solar industries continue to experience tremendous global growth, developers, asset owners, and utilities will increasingly look to our combined software capabilities to provide a unified platform for energy intelligence that improves project performance,” said John Carrington, CEO of Stem. “The combined company will deliver an AI-driven software offering that we expect will simplify our customers’ asset management, boost their project returns, and accelerate our own growth trajectory.”
The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2022.
