invest in the future

Our first Future Energy Fund was launched in 2018, focusing on areas such as carbon capture, emerging mobility and energy storage. Building on its success, Future Energy Fund II was launched in 2021, and has focused on industrial decarbonization, emerging mobility, energy decentralization and the growing circular economy. Future Energy Fund III, launched in 2024, will continue to look forward in the areas of focus for the earlier two funds and aims to expand investment in the areas of novel low carbon fuels, advanced materials and transforming carbon to higher-value products. Our Future Energy Funds have invested in more than 30 companies with more than 250 other investors in support of low-carbon innovations.
