The transaction concerns Centrica Business Solutions Mexico SA de CV (CBS Mexico) which is focused on designing, installing and operating a range of different distributed generation solutions and projects located on the premises of various industrial customers.

The operational projects are expected to generate annual revenues and EBITDA of more than USD 400,000 (EUR 372,580) and USD 300,000, respectively.

The acquisition will complement ReVolve’s newly established distributed generation division ReVolve Renewable Business Solutions.

These projects include rooftop solar, battery storage and energy efficiency projects of up to 5 MW located at the customers premises.
