WSB Energy


we empower nature

WSB Energy is a Dutch renewable developer and power producer with a focus on growing markets. We have a pipeline of close to 900 MW of biogas and solar projects in Northwest and Southeast Europe. We are currently 8 people supported by local development teams and a constellation of technical partners.

As a company, we strive for transparency, quality, and local acceptance to develop readily investable projects.

Our two energy cooperatives Fos Magnisias and Fos Efxinoupolis will each provide 15.5 MWp of solar power after completion

The construction of the plants started in 2022. Fifty percent of the planned facility is already under construction. Of these, three systems with a total of 3MWp have already been completed and connected to the power grid. The complete system with 31 MWp will be completed in October 2023 and connected to the power grid. 

After completion, the energy cooperatives will benefit from a fixed feed-in tariff of EUR 68.87 per MWh for 20 years.
With the realization of the photovoltaic systems, we make optimal use of the sunny area of Volos in Greece in order to supply 12,000 households with climate-friendly and sustainable energy every year and thus save 24 kilotons of CO2 emissions every year through the consumption of fossil fuels.

We strongly believe that projects require an adequate balance between risk and upside potential to attract investment
