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.
One of the factors that differentiates Libra from the red ocean of project developers and operators is Libra’s unique blockchain secured real-time energy auditing and management platform. The platform empowers Libra’s customers 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 eco system are not common across waste heat recovery, biomass, and waste-to-energy.
Libra provides and supports these services across all of its renewable energy plant sites 24/7/365.

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.
As 15% to 35% of the electricity distributed via electricity grids in emerging markets is consumed by high heat intensive manufacturing industries such as cement, steel, glass, petro-chemical, 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.
WHR systems generally reduce the consumption of grid supplied electricity to such plants by 20%-40%. Libra combines the integration in high heat intensive manufacturing plants of WHR systems and a tool kit of energy efficiency solutions that combined reduce the carbon footprint of each manufacturing plant in which they are installed 20%-60%.
Historically, nearly 98% of all whr plants installed to date worldwide have been steam rankine cycle (SRC). In recent years, more plants have begun adopting organic rankine cycle plants. Both technologies capture the waste heat from the manufacturing process and convert it into electricity which is distributed to the owner and/or off-taker of each installed whr system at a cost lower than the they pay for the electricity they consume from their existing electricity provider.
Libra Project is one of the few companies worldwide that has experience developing, funding, and operating src and orc whr systems across manufacturing industries. If you are interested in integrating a WHR plant, contact us today.
Energy market volatility can expose your company to unnecessary financial risks. Electricity generated from biomass 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 biomass plants across multiple sites across largely Southeast Asian and European markets.
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. Unlike WHR plants, 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.
In recent years, governments and private industry have realized the critical role biomass technology can play in electrifying poor urban and/or remote communities worldwide without harming the environment.
Biomass is one of the top technologies that IRENA and its coalition of partners have agreed to support to achieve its goal by 2030 that 23% of the electricity generated across Southeast Asia must be renewable energy. Click on the IFC Biomass report to learn more about this technology that is growing rapidly in adoption across Southeast Asia, Africa, and Latin American markets
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.
Energy market volatility can expose your company to unnecessary financial risks. Electricity generated from solar 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 extensive experience designing, developing, maintaining, and operating solar photovoltaic (PV) plants, including solar PV plants commissioned with robotic cleaning systems internationally the past decade.
While solar is a technology Libra Project fully supports and is very effective and appropriate technology to use to generate renewable energy, some organizations overutilize solar which can compromise environmental sustainability. Libra Project reviews each projected site to determine that 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.
