The Breakthrough Energy Coalition is a large group of individuals and institutions committed to invest in the new energy technologies emerging out of government research institutions to provide reliable, affordable power with zero emissions. The coalition is investing in multiple ways - individually, through partnerships, directly in companies, or through pooled capital vehicles. The firm will invest in early stage companies that can produce energy with near zero carbon emissions and provide people with reliable energy. The firm is one of those investment vehicles that a majority of the BEC has created to invest science focused, patient, and flexible capital in new companies that show promise to fulfilling the BEC mission. The firm will provide seed, angel, and series A funding across five different sectors: electricity generation and storage, transportation, industrial use, agriculture and energy system efficiency.
