Clean energy technologies are disrupting the world’s electricity and mobility systems, powered by innovations in renewables, energy storage, software intelligence, materials science, financing mechanisms and more. The shift promises to unlock trillions in wealth and economic development, stop the ever worsening impacts of climate change, and empower millions of people who currently don’t have access to modern energy services.
Startups are the engine driving this shift and our mission is to support thousands more.
