Johnson Controls has acquired Asset Plus, a specialist provider of energy reduction and zero-carbon measures for the UK public sector.
Delivering sustainability savings for multiple NHS organisations, local authorities, and educational establishments, Asset Plus provides strategic support and project management for energy efficiency measures and retrofitting across complex built environments. This includes low-carbon heating through Air Source Heat Pumps, low-energy LED lighting, and solar power integration, which are crucial in supporting companies to achieve vital net zero carbon emissions.
David Lloyd, Head of Connected Buildings at Johnson Controls UK&I, says: “We are very excited to announce that we have completed the acquisition of Asset Plus, one of the UK’s leading independent experts in the design and project management for implementation of decarbonisation and energy efficiency offerings. Its services will further enable Johnson Controls to deliver a turnkey net zero offering to all our UK clients, across all sectors, supporting us to deliver on our promise to create a safe, comfortable and, most importantly, sustainable world.”
Asset Plus complements Johnson Controls’ specialist public sector services, having been appointed as a supplier under five key procurement frameworks, including the Re:Fit Programme and the Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF). The NHS recently selected Johnson Controls for its National Framework Agreement for the provision of Smart Building Solutions using the Internet of Things (IoT). This latest acquisition provides further opportunities for UK public bodies to realise ambitious sustainability targets through smart technologies.
This includes Johnson Control’s cutting-edge openBlue suite of connected solutions, which ensures organisations can implement data-led sustainability strategies. Jamie Cameron, Director of Digital Solutions at Johnson Controls UK&I, comments: “With Asset Plus enhancing Johnson Controls’ existing portfolio, organisations can now adopt insight-driven sustainability strategies, taking informed action to reduce energy consumption, lower costs and adopt green electricity.”
“We are excited to be joining the Johnson Controls family,” says Paul Burnett, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Asset Plus. “Johnson Controls is the global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings and a perfect fit for Asset Plus, providing a unique opportunity to pivot our energy performance model to other market sectors and expand our offering, transitioning the business into the next phase of growth. We want to thank our clients and our partners who have supported us on the journey so far. The staff and management team at Asset Plus are very much looking forward to this next step and continuing to build upon the success achieved to date.”
