NEPC, along with a handful of clients, had the opportunity to attend the recent White House Clean Energy Investment Summit, held on June 16, 2015 in Washington, DC. The purpose of the event was to bring together institutional investors and administration officials to discuss technology developments and the need to mobilize capital to further scientific innovations in clean energy. Attendees had the opportunity to hear directly from a variety of entrepreneurs who are focused in this area of technology, as well as from several investors who are directing capital from their investment funds, grant portfolios, and program related investments.
In tandem with the event, the White House issued a press release announcing significant investments in clean energy innovation from the private sector. Of note, several NEPC clients were highlighted in the release due to their ongoing commitment to this area. Read more here.
