© VSB Holding GmbHDresden/Rome (renewablepress) - Project developer and operator VSB is focusing on further regionalisation as renewable energies go from strength to strength in Italy. It has opened a new office in the capital Rome for this purpose. Wind energy and photovoltaic projects in central Italy will be handled from here in the future. This includes both securing land and approval planning all the way to construction.
VSB has been planning and developing wind energy and photovoltaic projects in Italy since 2011. The Rome location is an ideal addition to VSB’s existing branches in Palermo and Potenza, which have so far mainly served the country’s southern regions.
“The spatial proximity to the Italian non-profit environmental organisations, to the Italian Wind and Solar Energy Associations, but also to national authorities, offers the best prerequisites for sharing experience and embarking on joint initiatives. This will allow us to drive the Italian energy transition even more efficiently,” said Giuseppe de Benedictis, General Manager of VSB in Italy, who is pleased about the new opportunities and potential in the growing Italian market.
In order to achieve the shared European climate targets, Italy is aiming to source 32 per cent of the total energy needs from renewables by 2030. This will see its total photovoltaics and wind power capacity grow from 30 GW today to at least 70 GW in 2030, with renewable energies playing the most important role in the country’s energy mix in the future. The VSB Group looks forward to actively accompanying this change and to speeding up the expansion of wind and solar.

About VSB Holding GmbH
The future of our energy supply is in renewables. This has been VSB Group’s guiding principle since 1996. And it’s been successful, too. From its head office in Dresden, the consultancy has become an international provider of wind energy and photovoltaic solutions. VSB adds value throughout the entire project life cycle, from securing land through approval planning and implementation to operations. We also offer our clients and investors a full range of specialized services and operate as a general contractor. We aim to provide quality, optimal project management, high-value components and excellent partners.
VSB implements environmentally-friendly projects, reducing CO2 emissions by several thousand tonnes. With our partners, we help municipal councils and mayors to develop and implement energy- and climate-driven concepts. Our common goal is to create a reliable energy supply, use energy consciously and efficiently and at low cost. This enables us to involve citizens comprehensively at an early stage, build acceptance and develop individual participation models.
A 300-strong team in Germany, Europe and worldwide works hard to make our vision of 100 percent energy generation from renewables a reality. For example, we have already succeeded in connecting roughly 900 megawatts of wind energy and photovoltaic power to the grid. That is equivalent to the annual energy consumption of roughly 1.3 million people. Many other projects are currently in development with cooperation partners, municipalities, citizens and investors.
