1. Clean Energy

Investments in the energy industry to lessen reliance on fossil fuels and advance toward net-zero objectives are a big part of the climate innovation ecosystem. The production of solar and wind energy has increased as a result. To facilitate the switch to clean energy, producers of renewable energy are also including other sources like geothermal and biofuels. In order to decarbonize the system, energy distribution businesses are growing their renewable energy portfolio at the same time. The shift to a carbon-free energy system is facilitated by developments in hydrogen and nuclear energy. These technologies are being improved upon by both established businesses and new ventures. Venture capital funds poured $23.2 billion into climate tech firms in 2021

  • Rolling facilitates Acquisition of sustainable electricity

A Danish firm called Reel makes it possible to buy green power. By collaborating with producers of renewable energy, the business links each client’s energy use to a particular solar or wind park. Additionally, the businesses are linked to the grid and renewable energy sources, guaranteeing constant electricity for operations. For each unit of grid energy utilised by the company, the grid receives an equal quantity of clean energy from the startup. It automates sustainability reporting, enables companies to achieve net-zero without capital outlays, and does so while using renewable energy at set pricing. According to our most recent Investment Radar, climate-tech businesses received $53.7 billion from venture capital and private equity (VC/PE) in 2021.

  • Agriculture Adaptive to Climate

Carbon emissions from the production of food, including animal husbandry, are quite high. Due to rising food and population needs, these emissions will keep rising. To encourage low-GHG farming methods, such as precision agriculture and smart farming, customers and food brands are becoming more interested. Startups now now provide automated agricultural systems that, while assuring profitability, use a lot less water and land than traditional farming. Greenhouses and urban agricultural techniques like aquaponics and vertical farms are examples of this. Similar to this, some food entrepreneurs innovate by creating plant-based meat substitutes that are simple to use in lieu of animal products and can be integrated into current manufacturing processes. In order to reduce GHG emissions from the industry and meet the world’s food demand, such climate-friendly food production techniques are essential. Venture Capital investors are expanding their horizons in 2022 beyond EV and battery companies to include a variety of firms that provide carbon capture technologies.

  • Klim moves forward Agricultural Regeneration

A regenerative agricultural environment is created by the German firm Klim. The business makes its information platform available to farmers, encouraging the sharing of ideas amongst farms. Additionally, financial assistance is given to farmers depending on their use of sustainable farming practises and the quantity of CO2 their soils can store. Farmers may guarantee revenues thanks to money from people and businesses who wish to lessen their carbon impact.

  • Sustainable Transport

Fossil fuels are heavily used in the transportation of both people and commodities. Automobile producers are creating electric cars with fuel cells and batteries to help reduce this. To hasten the market adoption and electrification of transportation, governments provide subsidies for EVs. In a similar vein, mobility providers make these EVs available on demand to their clients for shared mobility. Today, several firms also provide micromobility options for cities, corporate campuses, and colleges, including electric bikes, scooters, and bikes. With approximately $37 billion, Climate Tech Venture Capital increased investments in 2021 by 2.5 times pre-pandemic levels.

  • Developments in e-Mobility by Dandera Technologies

Dandera Technologies, an Indian firm, produces electric automobiles. The three-wheelers from the company are modified for a variety of uses, including passenger transportation and last-mile deliveries. They have ergonomics that are centred on the driver, less aerodynamic drag, and 150 km of range per charge, among other things. With the aid of cars made by Dandera Technologies, electrification is made possible for both passengers and freight firms.

  • The Circular Economy

The linear economy requires constant and expanding new material processing. The use of raw materials increases as a result, which in turn increases the need for additional resources like electricity and mining of land. As a consequence, it has a compounding effect that speeds up the production of GHGs and the pace of climate change. Contrarily, the circular economy puts low-value, end-of-life goods and resources back into use. Climate tech businesses use open reverse logistics platforms to do this. Furthermore, rigorous practises at waste management facilities increase material recovery, reusing, recycling, and upcycling, hence lowering carbon footprint. By establishing a market for recovered products, this helps waste management facilities earn extra cash. In 2021, corporate venture capital investments in companies that use climate technology more than quadrupled, breaking the previous record.

  • Seenons encourages the use of circular value chains

A reverse logistics platform is created by the Dutch business Seenons. To facilitate trash flow, it links the many parties involved in the waste chain. Businesses may schedule garbage pick-up using its app, and Seenons’ logistics partners will then contact nearby processors on their behalf. After separating valuable items from the garbage for recycling or upcycling, local processors burn the remaining rubbish. As a result, the amount of leftover garbage that ends up in landfills is greatly reduced in towns and municipalities.

  • Manufacturing with Low Carbon

The majority of activities in manufacturing units are resource-intensive, which significantly increases the emissions of GHG. The good news is that recent developments in low-carbon manufacturing techniques, such as the use of sustainable materials and energy-efficient integrations, allow manufacturers to lessen their influence on the environment. In order to outsource their logistical operations, including last-mile deliveries, many industrial businesses increasingly collaborate with EV fleet suppliers. Together, these initiatives help the industrial sector cut its carbon footprint and move closer to net-zero objectives. Businesses are increasingly investing in businesses that might help them benefit from the energy transition via their venture capital arms.

  • Advances in AromatEco Chemical Manufacturing with Sustainability

Sustainable home chemicals are created by British business AromatEco. To substitute goods made from fossil fuels and tropical agriculture, the business upcycles carbon dioxide (CO2) into high-value chemicals. Flavors and perfumes are some of its remedies. This enhances operational sustainability and makes it possible for chemical makers to access low-carbon components.

  • Sustainability in Land and Water Management

The earth’s capacity to absorb carbon is reduced by deforestation brought on by building and agriculture. Reforestation efforts are necessary to stop global warming even while government policies favour deforestation. In addition to reforestation, climate technology businesses are addressing the contamination of land and water resources brought on by industrial effluents. Startups provide land restoration options, such as wetland regeneration, to address these problems effectively by delaying the use of chemicals. Innovative water purification techniques for wastewater management and desalination are also being developed by climate tech businesses. In order to meet their expanding water demands, the latter enables local populations to draw drinking water from saltwater. Venture capital investment in climate technology has increased by 23x since a decade ago. Additionally, it is 2.5 times greater than pre-pandemic levels.

  • Reclaimed Spaces offers land reclamation services.

Reclaimed Spaces is an Australian start-up that provides land reclamation services for residential landscapes, wetlands, and parks.

The services provided by Reclaimed Spaces enable municipalities, property owners, and commercial establishments to maximise land usage, absorb carbon, and support terrestrial ecosystems.

  • Administration of Buildings

Both the quantity of generated energy and the amount of carbon emissions produced by buildings are enormous. Much of it comes from the heating and cooling systems in homes and businesses. Startups working on climate innovation are creating tools for tracking and reducing energy use in buildings to increase their efficiency. Building managers may save expenses and improve electricity use with the help of these building management systems (BMSs). To minimise energy consumption from the grid, startups also provide grid-independent sustainable energy producing solutions. Venture capital funding for climate technology is currently 23 times more than it was ten years ago. Additionally, it has grown 2.5 times from pre-pandemic levels.

  • Low-Carbon Air Conditioners are created by Caeli Energie (ACs)

Low-carbon air conditioners are produced by the French firm Caeli Energie. A high-performance heat and mass exchanger, an evaporative thermodynamic cycle, and Maisotsenko’s cycle are all used by the firm to create energy-efficient AC systems. Furthermore, Caeli Energie’s solution uses no refrigerants and no exterior units, which eliminates refrigerant leaks and enhances convenience. This enables property owners and managers to switch out expensive conventional air conditioners with affordable, environmentally friendly options.

  • Carbon Data and Analytics

What you cannot measure, you cannot improve, as is sometimes remarked. The study of earth and climatic data is necessary to combat climate change. Startups employ Internet of Things (IoT) devices and satellites to enhance climate action planning and create more precise climate models. Due to the increasing consumer preference for environmentally friendly goods, this also raises their brand value and increases sales. Today, there is a 23x increase in venture capital funding for climate technology. As compared to pre-pandemic levels, it is 2.5 times greater.

  • The company Sylvera offers data-driven carbon intelligence.

Data-driven intelligence for carbon initiatives is provided by UK firm Sylvera.

This improves project transparency for carbon emissions reductions and enables immediate assessment and comparison of project quality. In order to assure investments by Venture Capitalists in the appropriate carbon initiatives and track project success, corporate sustainability teams may use Sylvera’s solution.

  • The use of and storage of carbon

Until all renewable energy sources are fully integrated into the system, fossil fuels will continue to contribute to the climate issue. The stabilisation of the climate, however, depends on advancements in GHG capture and sequestration technology. For this reason, businesses are creating massive carbon capture systems. The key issues with CCUS initiatives, however, are scalability and capital expense. Startups are using cheaper, easier carbon capture technology as well as natural carbon sequestration techniques to combat this. These options broaden the use of CCUS options in both commercial and residential contexts.

  • Planboo moves forward Sequestration of Carbon in Soil

A Swedish firm called Planboo works to increase soil carbon sequestration. To trap atmospheric carbon, the company maintains sizable, confirmed bamboo carbon sinks. In order to produce high-quality carbon credits, it also produces biochar from bamboo and other plant wastes. This approach expedites the transition to net-zero while allowing businesses to reduce their carbon emissions, restore harmed soils, and support ecosystem restoration.

  1. Sustainable Building

Resources are used up quickly throughout the construction process, from the manufacture of raw materials to the use of land and energy. 3% of all GHG emissions are attributed to cement manufacturing alone.  Companies are investing more and more money in firms that might help them benefit from the energy transition via their venture capital arms. A market for recovered materials is also being developed thanks to reverse logistics strategies and material recovery from demolition sites. These technologies greatly lower the carbon footprint of building operations as the manufacture of construction raw materials is a step that produces a lot of carbon. While reducing costs, some firms employ prefabrication and additive manufacturing to construct structures with little material waste.

  • MAA’VA creates an eco-concrete company in the US.
