in the green heart
A perfect match: VSB in Erfurt
We focus on fair project development not only in Thuringia: Transparency, participation and environmental protection are a main consideration for VSB. Therefore we were awarded the seal “Partner for fair wind energy” by the Energy and Greentech Agency (ThEGA) in Thuringia.
Thuringia: For renewable energies by conviction
The government of Thuringia has set the goal to cover the state’s energy demand with a mix of 100 percent of regenerative energy until 2040. For this purpose the preferred area for wind energy generation was increased from 0.3 to one percent of the state’s area. Also the forest will be opened up for wind energy under specific conditions. We take this chance and lay the foundation for further regional growth with a branch office in Erfurt. Environmentally and socially compatible project development is the basis of our success since 20 years.
Hesse is in position
The conversion of the energy supply was started with new impetus in Hesse. The ambitious objective is to completely cover the energy consumption in the sector of electricity and heat by regenerative energy sources until 2050. Therefore, up to two percent of the country’s area shall be approved for preferred utilisation of wind energy, also a high-resolution wind potential study was provided. The share of renewable energies in the grid should double to 25 % already until 2019. Along with measures to increase energy efficiency the state government primarily focuses on additional wind and solar energy plants – a task which VSB would like to tackle with commitment together with citizens and communities.
There is still a lot to do!

Experienced and networked – VSB in Erfurt
VSB has installed already 33 MW of wind capacity in Thuringia and Hesse, the project pipeline is well filled with more than 200 MW until 2020. This is a large potential to shape the regional energy transition.
Our trusted cooperation with communities, energy suppliers farmers and forest officials as well as intense networking with Thüringer Erneuerbare Energien Netzwerk (Theen) and ThEGA are the foundation for successful completion of our projects. This is complemented by long-term experience and comprehensive know-how: Our experts in the fields of land securing, environmental planning, micrositing and wind measurement as well as our planners jointly develop wind and solar energy projects ready for approval. Supported by sound funding, the plants are erected and commissioned within the scheduled time and cost frame.
Involved from the very beginning: mayors, members of district and town councils as well as citizens and land owners. We provide transparent information, offer individual options for participation and keep our ears open for your questions.
