In July 2022, ECP acquired Metrus Energy, a pioneering energy efficiency provider in the building efficiency and sustainability space. Founded in 2009, Metrus Energy holds one of the longest track records in energy efficiency, and is committed to building a sustainable, low-carbon future by bringing clean energy projects to life. Its comprehensive climate-positive financing solution pays for all upfront and ongoing project costs, providing upgrades to aging infrastructure, improving energy equipment resiliency, and lowering carbon emissions without high capital expense.
Metrus bundles efficiency and clean energy measures into one simplified contract, tailoring each project to provide a turnkey solution. Energy efficiency upgrades represent the most cost-effective way to decarbonize and importantly do not rely on government incentives. Metrus is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment.
As government action, consumer sentiment and skyrocketing energy costs drive companies to revamp their sustainability goals, energy efficiency and behind-the-meter solutions continually emerge as critical components of a robust energy management strategy. With the support of ECP’s strong experience in distributed generation, Metrus is well positioned to participate in the growing wave of investment to both decarbonize and reduce energy consumption.
