When it all begins

If we were able to celebrate 20 years in business in 2020, it is thanks to the intuition of Ilario Vigani, a nuclear engineer who is now Chairman of the Group. After a career that led him to management positions in various companies in the energy sector, in 2000 he decided to embark on his own entrepreneurial project, with the aim of developing solutions based on the most advanced technologies in the field of high-efficiency energy generation. A visionary purpose for a time when terms such as ‘distributed generation‘ or ‘green economy‘ were unknown to most.

At the same time, another story is developing, that of Capstone Turbine Corporation. In the early 2000s, this Californian company, whose founders came from the Douglas Aircraft Company and Allied Signal Aerospace, had just patented a highly innovative high-tech gas microturbine that operated in a very similar way to a jet engine. At this juncture, the encounter between the two companies was decisive. Mr Vigani saw the great potential and in 2001 chose to become the American company’s exclusive partner for the Italian market, making IBT the first company to introduce this innovative technology in our country.

The first steps

It was in 2002 that the first energy self-production plant was installed using “oil-free” gas microturbine cogeneration technology, anticipating issues such as decarbonisation, cogeneration and sustainability that would soon become key economic players. Edison’s research centre in Trofarello (TO) was the first site in Italy to host this technology, followed by Autogrill Bauli in Verona.  In 2007 we decided to expand our business abroad with the foundation of IBT EUROPE, based in Klagenfurt, Austria, in order to market our solutions throughout Europe.

IBT Connecting Energies GmbH

In that same year, we supplied the first Capstone C30 biogas microturbines for the Trento Nord purification plant, while the following year we presented the first C200 in Europe at PowerGen Milano. In 2012, following the strong growth in demand for cogeneration technologies in Eastern European countries, we became the exclusive Capstone distributor also for Poland. In 2013 IBT Srl merges with IBT EUROPE GmbH to develop new markets, company value and strategic assets with offices in Klagenfurt and Treviso.
