We just completed our two-day summit (Oct. 25-26), which included 22 panels and fireside chats with leading founders, VCs, researchers and policy experts. We had a great turnout, with more 6700 people registered this year, from 88 countries. We recognize that the event was not available during waking hours in much of the world so

Building Global Deep Tech Startups Complementing Solar and Wind: VoltStorage and SunGreenH2
The challenge is how to provide clean baseload power when the sun doesn’t shine, and the wind doesn’t blow. To function, electric grids need a minimum amount of power 24/7. Could grid-scale battery storage and green hydrogen solve the problem?
When Farming Goes Indoors: How Gotham Greens, iUNU and Vertical Oceans are Trying to Protect Our Food and Climate
Globally, agriculture generates 31% of CO2 equivalent emissions, accounts for 70% of freshwater withdrawals, and drives 90% of deforestation. At the same time, climate change impacts like drought, heat, and flooding increase the risk of crop failure and famines. If farming is a risk to the climate and at risk from the climate, could we solve both problems by bringing it indoors?

The Reverse VC: How Carl-Erik Lagercrantz and Vargas Holding Built a $12 Billion Climate Tech Startup
New climate tech startups are notoriously risky and capital-intensive. So, early-stage VCs usually invest a little seed capital in a lot of startups. But what if someone were to reverse the Silicon Valley model of climate tech investing? What if they de-risked climate tech by investing a ton of money upfront into one startup with proven technology, large-scale production plans, and a ready customer?
Stuff Minus Emissions: How to Decarbonize and Upcycle Essential Materials with Biomason, Novoloop, and Lingrove
The materials essential to 21st century life are carbon-intensive and rarely reused. CO2 emissions from cement production have doubled over the last 20 years and now account for over 7% of global emissions. Plastics, responsible for 3.4% of global greenhouse gas emissions, have become an environmental nightmare. Only about 9% are recycled while 22% are “mismanaged,” with some 22 million tons leaking into the environment annually—about 10 times the tonnage of all Tesla cars sold worldwide in 2021.
How X, Breakthrough Energy and Princeton’s ZERO Lab see the impact of the Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act
Unresolved and unstable policies can make it difficult (or expensive) for startups to secure financing. Thus, emerging climate technologies depend to some extent on support from policymakers. But to what extent can climate tech startups and investors shape policy? And how?
