The company was founded by Xavier Caïtucoli, entrepreneur and co-founder of Direct Energie, Erik Maris, entrepreneur and Advisory Partner of Advent International, and Fabrice Dumonteil, founder and president of Eiffel Investment Group, with the aim of acquiring one or more European companies in the energy transition sector, in the activities of renewable energy production and of energy efficiency.

Xavier Caïtucoli, CEO and Co-founder, said: “The success of this investment reflects the confidence of investors in the quality of our team, in the relevance of our project and its ability to create value, and in the phenomenal growth potential of an energy sector undergoing profound change, particularly in Europe. As the first European listed SPAC dedicated to the energy transition, Transition will enable mid-size European companies to change scale and become champions of climate issues and the necessary transformations to come in order to achieve the global objectives of carbon neutrality.”
