About Us

Our Mission: Clean Energy Trust partners with innovators to bring scientific and technological advancements to market that change how the world generates, consumes and reuses energy and natural resources.

Why It Matters: Limiting global temperatures to the 2C target set by COP21 requires the combined powers of science, innovation and entrepreneurship to develop and commercialize new low-carbon technologies. Greater deployment of existing technologies is essential but not sufficient without new innovation.

Our Results: To date, CET has awarded over $3.7M in funding to 33 clean energy startups. Startups benefitting from our programs have gone on to raise an additional $96M in follow-on  funding – and have created over 300 jobs.

Clean Energy Trust works at the intersection of startup investment, technology commercialization, and energy policy.
