ABOUT US

 

The world’s first private democratized and tokenized green utility, Libra Project develops, funds, maintains, and operates renewable energy plants across nearly two dozen countries in Southeast Asia and East Africa that meet Libra’s impact investment and operational performance requirements.

 

Three key points differentiate Libra Project from the red ocean of companies developing renewable energy projects.

 

  • Energy Guarantee: Libra provides a 95% energy performance guarantee for every project it develops,

  • Real-time Access & Monitoring: Libra leverages its blockchain secured energy management platform to optimize the energy efficiency and performance of each of its projects. Clients and investors are able to access the platform 24/7/365 and see the real-time performance of their projects,

  • Libra is committed to impact investing and to improve the lives of 100 million people by 2030, Libra Project maintains two business units.

The first unit secures multi-year purchase power agreements with industrial manufacturing companies to develop, fund, maintain, and operate renewable energy plants that provide lower cost power than the manufacturers can receive from their local grid operators. These projects often are waste heat recovery, biomass, waste-to-energy, and solar projects. By providing renewable energy to industrial manufacturers – often the largest volume electricity consumers in Libra markets, Libra reduces the distribution stress most grid operators encounter. Libra requests of the local grid operators that the freed-up grid capacity each project creates should be distributed to communities that lack safe, affordable electricity. Hence, Libra’s projects result in grid operators redistributing grid electricity to tens of thousands of people that previously had no power.

The second business unit secures multi-year purchase power agreements from rural municipal governments in markets where governments have a proven track record of paying bills on time while maintaining a credit rating acceptable to Libra’s funding committee. These renewable energy projects often are biomass, waste to energy, or solar projects, for which 100% of the power is dedicated to local communities that lack safe, consistent, and affordable electricity.

By mid-2019, Libra will launch its regulated impact token and blockchain secured platform which will enable any investor anywhere in the world to channel their savings efficiently and safely into Libra’s impact investment projects by using the transparency and security of blockchain technology (each person must meet our KYC and AML regulatory compliance requirements) for as little as $100.

 

MISSION & VISION

MISSION

Libra Project  is committed to improve the quality of life of 100 million people in the communities in which we operate our power plants by 2030. After all, everyone on this planet has the right to clean drinking water, electricity, and fresh food.

VISION

We will leverage impact investment standards with the benefits and certainty our blockchain technology platform delivers to reduce the barriers and costs to fund and develop renewable energy plants where they are needed most. Anyone, anywhere, not just the upper most 1% of the world, should have access to invest in renewable energy projects should they so desire.​

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

 

Libra Project’s ownership and management believe in a future where investments are not only judged by profits but by the positive impact they create and sustain environmentally and socially.

 

At the heart of this philosophy is Libra’s adherence to the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. While Libra Project supports all 17 SDGS of the UN, Libra Project through its work daily addresses directly five of the 17 SDGs. By doing so, Libra improves the environment by reducing the creation of CO2 while it embeds the sustainable generation of clean energy in the communities in which it operates its electricity plants.

 

Libra Project also creates sustainable, meaningful jobs in the communities in which it operates its plants.

An important part of this philosophy requires Libra Project to partner with EPCs, contractors, equipment manufacturers, and service providers in the countries in which Libra Project operates. This assures local companies in the countries Libra Project operates benefit.

 

MANAGEMENT

 

The Libra Project management team is comprised of multi-sector experts with experience in several industries with social impact as our common denominator.

 

The team has more than two decades of expertise garnered from developing, funding, and operating renewable energy projects across the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Africa. Our team’s experience traverses solar (PV and solar thermal), waste heat recovery (SRC and ORC), biomass, and waste-to-energy plants.

Commitment to

IMPACT INVESTING

In today’s world, far too many companies, individuals etc. invest merely with a focus to earn a profit. Far too few companies and people invest with a purpose to improve the quality and longevity of life of others while earning a profit.

 

We believe you can do good for the planet and good for society while doing good for your wallet.

 

While every project we develop provides power to industry or urban and/or rural communities that lack safe, reliable, affordable electricity, our projects also improve the underlying economic, environmental, and social foundation of each community in which we operate our plants. This is our core competency. Hence our membership in the Global Impact Investment Network.
