About us

Vespera Energy

Vespera Energy is the new kid on the block within the Italian solar market. But don’t be fooled into thinking that they are straight out of school. Quite the opposite, as the company is the brainchild of Pelion Green Future, Mr. Conor McGuigan, former Lightsource European Director, Mr. Italian solar himself and former LightsourceBP Italy, the wonderful Mr Aldo Giretti and last but not least our very own Sir Mark Hogan.

Vespera’s objective is to seize this opportunity with an innovative investment approach combined with development expertise and experience to develop 2 GWs of solar assets across the length and breath of Italy. With offices in Milan and Taranto, Vespera has already hit the ground running. Ciao…..here we come!

Let's hear from Mr. McGuigan

A Message from our CEO

Someone once told me that advice is a gift. I guess it depends on who is giving it and what motives they have but I have decided to write down some of my own advice I give to myself, so I hope it is a gift.

1. Integrity

This is the thread that runs through everything we do. It’s our ethical and moral consciousness. Admitting failure and recognise achievements. Important is also how you respect yourself and others.

Respect your colleagues and listen to each other’s opinions and use those around you to gain experience and develop your own skills. Understanding that everyone is different, value others’ opinions and consider their point of view.
