Twenty years ago, Dagmar Vogt, ib vogt’s founder and an industry pioneer, had an idea and passion for renewable energy at a time when the solar industry in Europe was in its infancy. The value and mission of developing photovoltaics (PV) as an important energy technology for the future – which we now term as “powering the energy transition” – was there from the beginning. The company started out designing, engineering, and managing the construction of state-of-the-art solar cell and thin film manufacturing facilities, becoming a market leader in the field.
In 2009, ib vogt shifted its focus to developing and building large-scale PV plants. In utility-scale PV and storage solutions, ib vogt has today become a leading global development platform and is growing its IPP business model, backed by a 20-year pedigree of capabilities, expertise, and experience.
ib vogt has established a strong track record over the last decade. With 2.9 GWp of power plants either built or in construction and having developed one of the largest solar PV project pipelines in the world at over 40 GWp, the company is focused on building a multi-GWp IPP portfolio over the coming years. As a rapidly growing, young, modern, and dynamic company with over 600 employees throughout the world, ib vogt is a leading contributor to the energy transition globally.
“Climate change and decarbonising power generation are amongst the central issues the world is facing not only today, but also in the decades to come. We are here to be part of the solution. Our mission is clear: to power the energy transition,” said Anton Milner, CEO of ib vogt. “Today we celebrate our 20th birthday and thank those who have accompanied us on this journey: our great employees without whom none of this would have been possible, our friends and partners, our customers and suppliers, and our shareholders and lenders. The energy transition is only just beginning, towards which we actively want to contribute and help accelerate, and we look forward to continuing creating a cleaner and greener planet for generations to come and making the world a better place.”
