Not entirely unexpected that a company with the experience and reputation of Younicos should be acquired. Once again traditional power companies are buying their way into the new decarbonised, decentralised energy sector. 

We've seen many utilities and even auto OEMs take stakes in decentralized energy specialists. Not least the recent acquisitions and disposals of ENGIE, show them leading the way. This deal perhaps a little more prosaic than transformative. Clearly Aggreko will have a huge client base where integration with energy storage and renewables makes huge economic, environmental and political sense. At least this way Aggreko get to keep those customers that are planning to move towards a hybrid solution. The move makes total sense for Aggreko, let's see how this effects Younicos strategy for C&I and Utility markets.
