Europe

Isle’s founding UK London team anchors our European presence, complemented by offices in the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy, bolstered by a diverse team across the continent. This expansion caters to local demand, enabling us to provide tailored advisory services for utilities and industrial companies rooted in the region’s history and culture.
Isle’s strategic central location allows it to drive investment through the thriving European technology start-up scene. Isle is a leader in this ecosystem, ensuring the right technology solutions are found to address the stringent and ambitious environmental regulations and net zero carbon pledges of Europe.
Environmental targets are tightening, posing challenges for compliance in areas like drinking water quality, water resource management, wastewater discharge, and resource recovery. This leads to escalating energy and chemical costs. Across Europe, there’s a shift towards water transition, addressing the balance between water scarcity and abundance, as well as managing non-revenue water levels and consumption. Water services are evolving from silent utilities to prioritize customer satisfaction. Aging, poorly-maintained assets are driving the adoption of digital, data-driven asset management. Additionally, emerging contaminants like PFAS and microplastics continue to be key concerns for the utility and industrial sectors.
The Isle team closely monitors emerging regulations and assesses their impact on the utility and industrial sectors. This provides a thorough grasp of current and near-future sector challenges. These identified issues are then paired with emerging technologies that Isle actively scouts. This allows Isle to trace a regulatory shift from inception to problem statement, technology selection, implementation, and impact tracking.
