The Real Deals report described Clean Growth Fund as “punching well above its weight. The firm’s purpose is to drive positive impact in the fields of decarbonisation and resource efficiency by backing early stage companies spanning sectors such as power, transport, buildings, industry and circular economy. Since launching last year, CGF has already invested in three companies: Piclo, Indra and tepeo (now also Carbon Re and Holiferm). Piclo has developed an online platform that unlocks new revenue streams for low carbon energy assets, while simultaneously balancing supply and demand of power at the grid level. Indra manufactures smart and bidirectional chargers for electric vehicles. These reduce stress on the power grid and enable consumers to charge during low carbon and low cost periods. Meanwhile, tepeo has designed a Zero Emission Boiler that is a drop-in replacement for residential gas and oil boilers. CGF has raised £60m to date and is on track to make the positive impact it set out for via its investments.”
