WHAT WE BELIEVE

A low carbon future is actionable now.

The Energy Transition is on-going, and GEC has been generating returns from clean energy innovations for over a dozen years. With our experience and capital, innovative technology companies become market leaders.

Global demand for clean, affordable energy will continue to grow in the coming decades.

Growing demand for clean, affordable natural gas powered energy will continue to increase fossil fuel consumption

Innovation is essential to meet global energy demand.

ESG performance will increasingly tie to corporate returns and management compensation.

Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar are increasingly cost-effective, growing their share of the overall energy supply mix.

Innovative technologies that drive the Energy Transition must be scaled to achieve global market impact.

OUR INVESTMENTS

GEC provides growth capital to innovative clean energy technology companies.

We invest in founder-led companies with products and services generally supported by proprietary patented technology. We actively work alongside our management teams to foster innovation and grow companies into new geographic markets.
