Linear Power Systems for free piston engine applications

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2009

Location: UK

Libertine makes ‘Linear Power Systems’ that enable the development of low cost, high efficiency appliances for small scale power generation, heating, cooling and transport.

Libertine’s technologies combine linear electrical machines with linear gas expander systems and can be applied in a wide range of small scale energy conversion applications.

Libertine’s patented and lab-proven technology dispenses with the crankshaft and other mechanical powertrain components that contribute to the high cost and low efficiency of today’s small power generation technologies.
