For the Libertas Group, the production of clean energy is more than a means of compensating for negative impacts on the environment. It is part of a broader vision of land use policy that envisages the best possible use of available resources and the least possible impact on the landscape. We approach renewable energy from the point of view of both greater self-sufficiency for our real estate projects, though the use of micro-generation, as well as from the wider perspective of the distribution of energy production plants in Portugal, their impact on the environment and their relation to urban development.
Hydroelectric Plant of Ribeira de Leomil, Viseu
The first hydro-electric power station of Group (Granja do Tedo, Viseu district) started operations in early 2008, with an expected output of about 5,000,000kw / year at 2,400kVA. Because of its characteristics, the plant operates maintaining an innocuous relationship with the dam, with the least landscaping impact, ensuring the availability of water in farms downstream, even in the dry season.
Solar Plant of Almodovar, Almodovar
Two photovoltaic solar power plants are being implemented in Almodôvar, with an expected power of 100kW / each.
Organic farming has emerged as a complementary activity to our asset management operations, rendering them more dynamic and contributing to sustainable land management by diversifying land usage, encouraging biodiversity and ensuring a balanced ecosystem.
In keeping with our vision and the demands of this type of agricultural production, we make it a priority to use local resources and crop-based, organic and mechanical methods rather than using synthetic materials. This helps to maintain and improve the long-term fertility of the soil, preserving the natural resources of the earth, water and air and minimising the different types of pollution that can result from agricultural practices.
