E.ON targets ‘under-serviced’ American market

Germany’s largest utility is making headway in renewable energy markets in North America.

E.ON Energy Services has set up a new business to capitalise on what it said was an underserved market in North America, venturing into the operations and maintenance (O&M) segment.

Despite the growth of the solar and wind markets in the continent, there are relatively few “nationally active” service providers.
The new company will offer asset management, maintenance and repair services for solar and wind generators.

“Supporting project owners and investors to get more performance, efficiency, and revenues from their projects is at the core of E.ON Energy Services. We'll leverage nearly a decade of experience to offer a one-stop shop to small, mid-size, and big customers alike," said E.ON's North American chairman Patrick Woodson.

Woodson said the company would be able to offer customised O&M services to different types of project owner.

"For more passive owners, we can perform site and balance of plant management during warranty periods all the way to full asset management services. For more active owners, we can supplement current efforts on major repairs, inspections, or long-term maintenance to keep infrastructure investment costs down," said Woodson.
