To reduce the risk to shareholders, the Libra Project Team will look to diversify the type of asset we develop and operate across many different countries.
Libra develops, funds, maintains and operates renewable plants across Waste Heat Recovery, Biomass, Waste-to-Energy, and Solar across various Southeast Asia and East Africa markets.
Extracting The Maximum Value From Projects
Libra Project provided an end to end solution that helps channel much-needed investment capital into renewable energy projects. Libra project funds, develops, maintains, and operates renewable plants across a wide range of technology including; Waste Heat Recovery, Biomass, Waste-to-Energy, and Solar across various Southeast Asia and East Africa markets.
One of the factors that differentiates Libra from the ocean of project developers and operators is Libra’s unique blockchain live reporting platform. The platform empowers Libra projects stakeholders with a level of performance, trust, and data immutability customers are challenged to find in the renewable energy industry. While real-time energy management and auditing services exist in the solar and wind industries, these services bolstered further by the trust and transparency delivered by Libra’s blockchain ecosystem and are not common across waste heat recovery, biomass, and waste-to-energy.
Energy From Grown Material
Biomass is a form of renewable energy that has been growing in popularity and adoption internationally in recent years. Biomass plants utilize either src or orc technology to generate electricity. Biomass plants require organic raw material such as wood chips, bamboo, rice husk, and multiple other types of organic waste to be fed into the plant to generate heat which is converted to electricity. The growing process of the feedstock absorbs Co2 from the atmosphere. A well-maintained biomass plant will have little bi-product when a series of ash condensers are introduced.
Run Off-River Hydro
When developed with care to footprint size and location, run-of-the-river hydro projects can create sustainable energy minimizing impacts to the surrounding environment and nearby communities.
Advantages include: Cleaner power and fewer greenhouse gases
Like all hydro-electric power, run-of-the-river harnesses the natural potential energy of water by eliminating the need to burn hydrocarbons to generate the electricity needed by consumers and industry. Moreover, run-of-the-river hydroelectric plants do not have reservoirs, thus eliminating the methane and carbon dioxide emissions caused by the decomposition of organic matter in the reservoir of a conventional hydroelectric dam.
Without a reservoir, flooding of the upper part of the river does not take place. As a result, people remain living at or near the river and existing habitats are not flooded.
Solar - PV
Libra Project’s team and its partners have extensive experience designing, developing, maintaining, and operating solar photovoltaic (PV) plants, including solar PV plants commissioned with robotic cleaning systems.
While solar is a technology Libra Project fully supports and is a very effective technology to use to generate renewable energy, some organizations overutilize solar which can compromise environmental sustainability.
Libra Project reviews each project site to determine if solar is the most appropriate energy to use to assure a potential solar site does not encroach on land that should otherwise be utilized for agricultural or forestry development.
Wind is used to produce electricity using the kinetic energy created by air in motion. This is transformed into electrical energy using wind turbines or wind energy conversion systems. Wind first hits a turbine’s blades, causing them to rotate and turn the turbine connected to them. That changes the kinetic energy to rotational energy, by moving a shaft which is connected to a generator, and thereby producing electrical energy through electromagnetism.
The amount of power that can be harvested from wind depends on the size of the turbine and the length of its blades. The output is proportional to the dimensions of the rotor and to the cube of the wind speed. Theoretically, when wind speed doubles, wind power potential increases by a factor of eight.
Geothermal energy is the heat that comes from the sub-surface of the earth. It is contained in the rocks and fluids beneath the earth’s crust and can be found as far down to the earth’s hot molten rock, magma.
To produce power from geothermal energy, wells are dug a mile deep into underground reservoirs to access the steam and hot water there, which can then be used to drive turbines connected to electricity generators. There are three types of geothermal power plants; dry steam, flash and binary.
Dry steam is the oldest form of geothermal technology and takes steam out of the ground and uses it to directly drive a turbine. Flash plants use high-pressure hot water into cool, low-pressure water whilst binary plants pass hot water through a secondary liquid with a lower boiling point, which turns to vapour to drive the turbine. It is one of the most stable forms of electricity and has no waste product making it the cleanest of all power generation systems.
Waste Heat Recovery
Taking Wasted Heat From Other Industry Process and Turning Into Electricity.
Energy market volatility can expose your company to unnecessary financial risks. WHR (waste heat recovery) electricity from Libra Project provides a levelized cost of electricity backed by some of the most certified technology in the market. Working with Libra Project means you enjoy controlled costs and reliable power. Libra Project’s management team and its partners have developed WHR plants across dozens of cement, glass, and steel manufacturing companies internationally the past decade.
Upto 35% of the electricity distributed via electricity grids in emerging markets is consumed by high heat-intensive manufacturing industries such as cement, steel, glass, petrochemical, oil and gas, and plastics, many governments across emerging markets have required such manufacturers to integrate WHR (waste heat recovery) plants into their manufacturing plants or incur a significant fine if they fail to do so. China, India, and Viet Nam are just a few of the countries that have done so.
Waste To Energy
Waste to Energy (WTE) is a form of renewable energy that has been growing in popularity and adoption internationally in recent years. WTE plants utilize organic waste, most often supplied from landfills, to generate electricity. Depending upon the type of WTE technology used in each plant, organic raw material is fed into the plant to generate electricity.
In recent years, governments and private industry have realized the critical role WTE technology can play in electrifying poor urban and/or remote communities, as well as industrial sites, worldwide while improving land, air, and water quality in the communities in which WTE plants operate.
WTE is a key technology that IRENA and its coalition of partners have agreed to support to decrease the 78% of citizens in East Africa that do not have electricity. Review the IRENA Africa report and see the facts yourself.
