Advanced energy is a broad range of technologies, products, and services that constitute the most effective solutions for meeting energy needs today and tomorrow.
In 2016, advanced energy represented a $1.4 trillion global market – almost twice the size of the global airline industry, and nearly equal to worldwide apparel revenue.
Today, electric and plug-in hybrid cars, hydrogen fuel-cells, high-performance buildings, energy-saving industrial processes, high capacity wind turbines, on-site and utility-scale solar power, and nuclear power plants are all examples of advanced energy, as they diversify energy sources, reduce health and environmental costs to communities, and use energy resources more productively.
Catalyst Ventures develops and managed ventures in four advanced-energy sectors, namely renewable energy, distributed energy, energy storage, and smart energy management systems. Within these sectors, we have a specific focus on technologies and services that are most relevant to the Middle East.
Most recently we have managed the following projects:
