JERSEY CITY, N.J.—Verisk Analytics Inc. acquired Make Consulting, a research and advisory business specializing in wind power.
Make will become part of Wood Mackenzie, a Verisk Analytics business focused on providing research and advisory services to the natural resources sector. The combined organization will enhance the offerings to clients and form a market analysis firm on renewables and the transformation of the global electricity industry, according to a statement.
The deal follows the acquisition of Greentech Media in July 2016, as part of a continuation by Wood Mackenzie to expand its capabilities in data and insight for the power and renewables sector.
"Decarbonization is the defining trend in the energy industry today. And Wood Mackenzie is building a preeminent position to offer our clients the latest thinking in the renewables sector," Wood Mackenzie President Neal Anderson said in a statement. "Make's expertise in wind and solar power complements both Greentech Media's expertise and our own existing practice."
