Axcel, in partnership with Chr. Augustinus Fabrikker, has agreed to acquire the Danish digital transformation partner, itm8, to create a northern European group within end-to-end IT services through a combination with Axcel-owned AddPro.

Vinge’s team consisted of Christina Kokko, Johanna Wiberg, Viktor Lennartsson and Nina Fathjalali (M&A), and Viktoria Owetz Leyva, Sara Dahlros Sköld, Christoffer Widström, Julia Hagelberg and Klara Lundquist (VDR).

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
