EDISON, N.J. — Building automation and energy services provider Albireo Energy LLC has announced a merger with Newark, Delaware-based Advance Power Control Inc. (APC) and Energy System Technologies (EST). Albireo said the partnership will bolster its geographic presence in the Mid-Atlantic region, while enhancing its capabilities in building analytics, demand response, and lighting controls. APC founder Paul Czerwin will continue to run day-to-day operations of APC and EST as a division of Albireo Energy.

APC provides turnkey building automation systems, lighting controls, metering, fault detection and diagnostics (FDD), and energy services to building owners throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

EST is a product distributor and technology consultant specializing in energy efficiency and controls for electrical and automation systems, targeting commercial buildings. The firm has established a robust sales channel consisting of 25 integrators and users throughout the region.

“These transactions are a significant milestone for Albireo Energy as we continue our aggressive growth and expand our geographic footprint,” said Phil Bomrad, CEO of Albireo Energy. “In addition to improving our ability to serve key markets in the region, APC and EST have developed synergistic solutions for commercial buildings that will provide significant growth opportunities throughout Albireo Energy.”

“We are excited to merge with Albireo Energy,” said Paul Czerwin, president of APC and EST. “Since our inception, we have been singularly focused on providing great solutions and building a robust solution-set that helps commercial building owners better manage their facilities. It is gratifying to know that the foundation we have built will be leveraged throughout Albireo.”
