With the world’s growing population and rising economies, energy efficiency can deliver an increased value output while reducing GHG emissions. We selected companies with innovative technology or business models pitching for investment.
Energy efficiency solutions to lower CO2 emissions

Why does energy efficiency matter?
A 10% increase in energy efficiency in the US will eliminate 1GT of CO2 emissions, without having to reduce demand. With the world’s growing population and rising economies, energy efficiency can deliver an increased value output while reducing CO2 emissions.
