Blue Pearl extends French HVAC network

FRANCE: Renewable and energy management company Blue Pearl Energy has integrated French HVAC contractor ECCI-Durbiano into its network of SMEs specialising in energy efficiency services. 

ECCI-Durbiano has 50 employees, and is said to have extensive expertise in HVAC engineering and plumbing, particularly in the collective housing, industry and tertiary sectors. Founded more than 25 years ago, the company is managed by Frédéric Jay who took over the company in 2013. 

Based in Échirolles, near Grenoble, ECCI-Durbiano is the fourth SME in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region to join the Blue Pearl Energy platform, after Ventimeca, Climacool and Alpes Energies in 2021. 

This new partnership will allow ECCI-Durbiano to take advantage of the strength of the Blue Pearl network, by offering global solutions to better support its customers in their energy transition, with energy performance contracts and the ability to finance customer installations.

ECCI-Durbiano is the twelfth SME to join Blue Pearl Energy, which is rapidly emerging as a major national player in the French energy services market.
