Renewable energy for the Americas
The acquisition of Greenwood Fuels marked the Libra Group's entry into the USA renewable energy sector. The company subsequently expanded and diversified to become Greenwood Energy which is involved in waste-to-energy fuel products (as Greenwood Fuels), emerging clean power generation technology such as fuel cell and combined heat and power, and solar energy investment.
Greenwood Energy has a growing portfolio of solar parks and alternative energy facilities across North, Central and South America. The customers for these facilities include public service bodies and grid operators. Greenwood has formed a number of strategic joint ventures to facilitate finance, construction and engineering.
Greenwood Energy's fuels division takes a wide variety of industrial waste to repurpose into burn-ready fuel pellets with lower emissions yet the same properties as coal, and can be used as a direct substitute with little or no adaptation. Greenwood has also installed plants in hotels, university campuses and other public buildings.
In 2014 the company announced a partnership with John Hancock Life Insurance to build and operate solar power stations across the USA. John Hancock has led $110 million of financing for 13 solar projects, located in five states with a combined generating capacity of 45 MW. Greenwood has a combined business pipeline in the Americas with a generating capacity of 1 GW.
