About Us


To support and invest in early-stage clean energy companies that have the potential to mitigate climate change and achieve attractive financial returns 


CEVG believes that: 

  • Climate change is one of the most serious challenges facing our society.
  • World-class entrepreneurs, who bring new technologies to market by building commercially viable and scalable companies, are critical to solving climate change.
  • Outstanding leadership is the most important element of any organization.  We need the talent, creativity, and ingenuity of all people and welcome diversity.
  • Collaboration with entrepreneurs and other stakeholders in an atmosphere of mutual respect, intellectual curiosity, and analytical rigor is necessary for success.

CEVG Today

We are a group of 35 + experienced entrepreneurs, executives and investment professionals in the areas of energy, engineering, commercialization, and sustainability. We believe that investing in climate tech can provide very attractive risk-adjusted returns as well as contribute toward mitigating climate disruption. We are one of the most experienced group of start-up clean energy and climate tech investors in North America, and have helped form the clean energy ecosystem.

We are proud of our reputation for being excellent partners with our entrepreneurs. With each investment, in addition to capital,  we bring the value of our experience and deep network to help companies achieve their goals. We excel at working with start-ups, as well as providing guidance and mentoring when asked.

Typically we work and invest alongside other angel groups, individual investors and venture capital firms. To date, CEVG partners have invested in over 60 climate tech companies and has had a number of successful exits.

CEVG partners are deeply committed to and involved in the clean energy ecosystem and serve on boards and as advisors to organizations in the clean energy and sustainability sectors.  We are also frequently mentors in incubator programs and judges in climate-related business plan competitions.

A Unique Partnership to Amplify Impact

Our  affiliated fund, Clean Energy Ventures (CEV), brings additional capital and expertise to our portfolio companies. Founded in 2017 by three CEVG partners, CEV now manages two funds with over $400 million in total committed capital. CEVG partners work closely with CEV in sourcing, scouting and diligencing deals. CEVG often co-invests and collaborates with CEV to support entrepreneurs as they grow their businesses.  

Our History

Nearly 20 years ago, a group of investors, including energy executives and successful entrepreneurs, came together to explore how to combat climate change. These founding members created CEVG  to support start-ups that could help to accelerate a clean energy transition with novel and impactful technologies and services. 

Over time, CEVG has attracted like-minded partners and invested in many emerging companies.
