The British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association has launched an Energy, Environment and Technology Group to offer guidance to government, investors and companies involved in the renewable energy and cleantech sectors.
The group, which includes Shai Weiss from Virgin and Peter Horburgh from ETF, brings together experts from all stages of the investment process, from early seed capital to later-stage venture, private equity and infrastructure investment.
“This group will bring strategic direction and years of experience to the BVCA’s efforts to educate investors and government on cleantech and renewable energy investment opportunities and fundamentals,” said Energy, Environment and Technology Group chair Tom Murley in a statement.
“We will also seek to provide guidance and advice for companies and management teams to enable them to realize their growth potential. By securing the right regulatory and investment frameworks and removing barriers, investment into clean power will flow, creating tens of thousands of new jobs and laying the foundations of a new energy economy essential to combating climate change.”
