About Greenwood Energy
Greenwood Energy has a strong track record through investing in alternative energy technologies and developing clean energy assets. Formed in 2010 in connection with the acquisition of Greenwood Fuels (a recycled fuel pellet manufacturer in Green Bay, Wisconsin), Greenwood Energy is the US-focused clean energy investment vehicle of the Libra Group. After achieving substantial growth, we separated the business into three distinct entities: Convergen Energy (centered on cleaner alternatives to traditional fossil fuel generation), Greenwood Energy Latam (focused on solar PV projects in Central America), and Greenwood Energy which continues to concentrate on solar PV projects in the US. Greenwood Energy typically partners with local solar developers and has solar projects in Delaware, Florida, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Vermont, and Hawaii.
We are part of the Libra Group, a privately owned international business group which controls over 30 subsidiaries operating across six continents. Libra also has substantial renewable energy interests in Europe through its subsidiary EuroEnergy, which is a prime operator in the European renewable market for clean energy from wind, solar, and biomass sources. Greenwood has a strategic relationship with EuroEnergy which undertook the Libra Group’s first solar investment in 2005. Libra’s core sectors are aviation, hospitality, real estate, shipping, diversified investments, and energy.
