Powering the Planet
Soaring global demand for energy and materials in the face of finite resources necessitate more productive and efficient ways to create and distribute electricity, chemicals and fuels. Cleantech entrepreneurs are truly changing the world in which we live. Their work transforms fundamental building blocks such as electrons, carbon, or hydrogen.
Our Cleantech investments are predicated on bringing technological advancements to market in an economically superior way. For example, advances in renewable energy, storage technologies and smart grid are reshaping the electrical system as we know it. We are looking for entrepreneurs with the courage to challenge the status quo and push forward with new answers.
We are already seeing what can be done when entrepreneurs harness biology, apply advances in information technology and manufacturing processes, and foster new discoveries in materials science. The results are startling and immediately beneficial to businesses and consumers. They are also critical to remaining competitive in the 21st Century.
