Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS LYBRA

LYBRA is a modular patented system able to absorb the vehicles speed and generate electric energy. It can be installed in vehicle deceleration zones without without altitude variations.

HOW DOES LYBRA WORKS

LYBRA absorbs the kinetic energy normally dispersed by vehicular traffic trough the brakes. Thanks to a patented technology, the kinetic energy is converted into electric energy. LYBRA can be connected to every photovoltaic inverter.

MAIN ADVANTAGES

  • LYBRA compensates the environmental impact of vehicular traffic producing green energy from the traffic.
  • It takes up/ requires less space than other green technologies such as photovoltaic and wind power plants.
  • LYBRA contributes to the traffic speed regulation because it facilitates the slowdown of vehicles in certain areas.
  • LYBRA reduces the co2 emissions produced by car brakes reducing the consumption of brakes.
  • LYBRA only requires the requalification of an existing street since the device is installed at the same level of the asphalt. LYBRA does not produce any environmental or visual impact.
  • LYBRA works both day and night, in summer and winter, with or without wind.

WHERE DO WE USUALLY INSTALL LYBRA?

We usually install LYBRA in every traffic slowdown zone: before a roundabout, before a pedestrian crossing, before an intersection, within a toll booth lane etc.

WHEN WILL LYBRA BE AVAILABLE ON THE MARKET?

The new model will be presented in spring 2021

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF 20ENERGY?

20Energy has picked up the original LYBRA dream taking it to a next level: producing and commercializing a solution suitable for every environment.

HOW MUCH ENERGY CAN BE PRODUCED BY LYBRA?

A LYBRA plant can produce up to 30.000kWh yearly, covering/occupying a 12 square feet area on the ground. Practically, in a medium trafficked roundabout (approximately 7.000 vehicles per day) a standard LYBRA installation can produce up to 30.000 kWh yearly: thats the energy used by 20 families! In order to produce the same amount of energy (the same energy amount) with a photovoltaic plant, it would be required a 45kW within an occupied surface of 300 square meters.

HOW SIGNIFICANT IS THE REDUCTION OF CO2 EMISSIONS THANKS TO LYBRA?

A LYBRA plant can help avoiding up to 380 tons of CO2 emissions yearly

WHERE IS LYBRA PRODUCED/ WHERE DO WE PRODUCE LYBRA

LYBRA plants are proudly produced in Italy

ARE THERE SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES?

No, LYBRA is a technology unique in the world/unique technology in the world.
