Specialist investor, Green Angel Syndicate, states that moving from a world still largely powered by fossil fuels to one that is 100% powered by renewable energy is achievable thanks to three massive trends that will unfold over the coming decades:

  • The transition from fossil fuel-based power to clean electricity
  • The clean transportation revolution, from privately-owned combustion engine cars to transport-as-a-service based on electric, autonomous vehicles
  • Huge improvements in energy and resource efficiency in industry and buildings.

Venturescape, a new enterprise intelligence platform, has teamed up with Green Angel Syndicate to identify the investment opportunities that are driving this cleantech revolution towards a totally renewable energy future. Together, they have identified eight categories of innovative and transformative young companies in the UK:

  1.     Power storage & efficiency
  2.     Material use
  3.     Smart cities
  4.     Energy efficiency
  5.     Water
  6.     Food and fuel
  7.     Information and analytics
  8.     Autonomous vehicles
