Published: Friday 27 November 2009

The Gloucester based Corporate Finance Team of leading firm of business advisers and chartered accountants Hazlewoods LLP, led by Partner Paul Fussell, has recently advised on the merger of Green Energy Matters (Europe) Limited with Vibrant Energy Assessors Limited.


Green Energy Matters (Europe) Limited, based in Blackwood, Gwent and Vibrant Energy Assessors Limited, based in London are market leaders in the production of energy performance certificates (EPCs) for both the residential and commercial sectors.  The merger of the two companies will enable the enlarged entity to have greater geographical coverage and to continue to invest in new technologies, recruitment and training. 

Group Managing Director Martin Brayshaw, commented:

“By combining our key attributes, we will be better able to maintain our first class service to clients through improved technology, a stronger customer service core and an enhanced strategic and innovative approach to the business.”

Michael Wayman, Deputy Group Managing Director, said:

“The UK government has set huge carbon reduction targets for the country to ensure the UK is leading the way in the fight against climate change. We are committed to our work in this area and the EPC is part of a series of measures introduced across Europe to reflect legislation which will help cut buildings’ carbon emissions and tackle global warming. 

Buildings produce half of the UK’s carbon emissions and with our combined strengths we are better able to meet our aim to help businesses and homeowners tackle this ever increasing problem.”

The merger positions the new group as the largest independent provider of EPC and related energy and property services with over 100 staff dedicated to the provision of core services and completing in excess of 100,000 EPCs per year.

Hazlewoods LLP provided Financial Due Diligence services.
