Everoze launches in France with senior team

Paris, 1st March 2016

Technical and commercial energy consultancy, Everoze, announces the opening of new offices in Paris and Lyon to serve the renewables and broader energy industry in France. A senior team of 4 staff has been assembled with a proven track record of enabling transactions in the French renewables sector and beyond.

Everoze launched last year in the UK and has expanded quickly, driven by a high demand for consultancy services across northern Europe. The favourable policy environment in France is seen by the start‑up as an important growth opportunity.

New partner, Jerome Jacquemin said “Renewables represented 95% of new generation capacity in France in 2015. With the Energy Transition Bill now in place, the outlook for renewables is very positive, though industry will have to adapt to a more competitive regulatory environment. Everoze is setting up shop in France to help companies make the most of these opportunities which means doing consultancy differently. We will be closer to our clients and more flexible on when, where and how work is delivered.”

Jerome joins Everoze from DNV GL (formerly Garrad Hassan) where he held the position of Country Manager for France & North Africa. Also joining Everoze are:

  • Siobhan Green, formerly Technical and Engineering Manager at RES Australia;
  • Arnaud Thome, formerly Head of Section for Technical Due Diligence at DNV GL; and,
  • Christophe Campistron, formerly Head of Section for Solar at DNV GL.

The new team will be working closely with UK-based colleagues and local partners to deliver Due Diligence on Demand, asset health and strategic support services to developers, investors and asset owners.

Founding Partner, Joe Phillips commented “We’re delighted to welcome such a distinguished team to Everoze. This is about giving our clients in France direct access to some of the most experienced and competent consultants in the business. The French renewables market has enjoyed consistent and strengthening political support. In this environment there is a clear need for customer-oriented consultants with the knowledge and skills to identify opportunities as well as risks.”
