With over 4,500 generating plants and more than 3,700 MW of marketed production capacity, e2m is one of Europe’s leading energy aggregators and an excellent medium-sized and independent electricity trading company.
E2M invests in growth
The shareholders of Energy2market GmbH (e2m) have approved a capital increase strengthening the company’s equity base and fulfilling one of the requirements for safeguarding the trading service provider’s growth strategy over the next years.
The further expansion of business both in Germany and abroad – as well as of the IT structures connected with it – requires investments in staff, systems and markets which are intended to tap into additional market potential over the coming years.
As a result of this investment, e2m’s main shareholder, Trailstone, a global commodities trader, will increase its shareholding to 54.8% making it the majority shareholder. However, this will not change the company’s general strategy. “The founders will continue to have a say in the company’s strategy also in future”, emphasises Bodo Drescher, one of the founding shareholders of the successful Leipzig-based company. “As the founding shareholders, we have a qualified minority shareholding which means that decisions can only be taken with our approval.”
e2m is one of the leading market access service providers for energy and flexibility from decentralised technical units which are combined into a Virtual Power Plant developed specifically for this purpose within the company.
Trailstone is a trading house specialising in international energy trading. It acquired a shareholding in e2m in 2015 and has significantly contributed to the success of its growth strategy since then.
