The Carbon Trust

Investment from Carbon Trust

The principal aim of Carbon Trust Investments is to promote the development of the UK's clean energy technology sector by investing its own funds, leveraged with other private funding, into early stage UK clean energy technology companies. Carbon Trust Investments is one of the UK's leading co-investors in clean technology with the ability to assess risk as an informed industry insider. We typically invest between £250k and £3m in any given business, with an average transaction size between £500k and £10m.

Clean energy companies operate within the energy supply chain, and have the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases.

Clean energy technologies and services can be described in five sequential phases in the energy supply chain:

• Upstream – including hydrogen production, biofuels, and waste to energy
• Generation – converting an energy source into usable electricity or heat including fuel cells, solar photovoltaics, wind turbines and marine
• Infrastructure – transporting electricity or heat to the point of use including electricity transmission, heat pipes, hydrogen storage, batteries, power conditioning, and energy meters
• Consumption – improving the efficiency of energy being converted for useful work including lighting and heating appliances, building materials, industrial machinery, power electronics and process improvements
• Services – that directly improve energy efficiencies and/or mitigate emissions using offsets in the energy supply chain
