Catalyzing long-term private capital into clean energy innovation

Precourt Institute for Energy

PI: Raymond Levitt, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Student: Soh Young In


Project Summary

Long-term investors, such as pensions and endowments, are massive pools of capital that could bridge the chasm between energy R&D and commercialization, but they generally have not done so. This research will help government design and implement a new investment vehicle that will facilitate long-term investments in clean-energy companies and projects.
