As technological carbon removal has garnered widespread attention, one response resurfaces again and again: Why complicate climate solutions with expensive, experimental technology when Earth’s most efficient carbon removal machines already exist in nature? Why not just plant more trees? Well.....read on....
As predicted, Covid-related production slow-downs had almost no effect on the rise of carbon dioxide.Based on geological evidence collected over the six decades scientists have been tracking atmospheric CO₂, this year’s peak appears to be the highest in as long as 4.5 million years.....
A recent report from Guidehouse predicts that by 2030, more than 30 GWh of long-duration storage – representing nearly 40% of the total amount of storage deployed that year – will be installed in the global market. That’s a ten-fold increase compared to today...
It’s not a matter of “if”, but “when” all the complements and alternatives to lithium gain the prominence they deserve. It’s time to bank on zinc’s promising role in the energy systems of the future. ..
So, what do major investors need to know to capitalise on the opportunity offered by the energy transition over the coming decades? This report outlines six capital allocation principles to keep in mind...

If renewable energy is going to provide a steady source of energy to power grids, we need to find ways of storing it. Lithium-ion batteries are currently the dominant technology, but new rivals are emerging. These include vanadium batteries, hydrogen, and even volcanic rocks. Could they offer a serious challenge to lithium-ion’s supremacy? ...
Of the many possible solutions, compressed air seems to be sweeping some in the energy sector off their feet. Compressed air energy storage, or CAES, takes advantage of air’s ability to be stored in the form of elastic potential energy until we’re ready to use it. Advanced CAES is a new iteration of an old technology that's able to harness air’s elastic potential to store energy until it’s ready to be used, which could be a huge game-changer for renewable energy....
In this episode, host Shayle Kann talks with fellow venture capitalist Abe Yokell about the state of climate tech investing. It’s safe to say that this year has brought some of the biggest changes to the space we’ve ever seen. Shayle and Abe try to separate what’s real from what’s hype....

The Fund has prepared this Market Primer to inform interested investors on the scale of the challenge ahead and on the critical role of energy storage technologies in driving this transition...
