To accelerate the transition to a future powered by renewable energy in order to mitigate climate change
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!
