An ambitious moonshot to accelerate ecological+economic development in our local communities
The energy innovation is already here to transition our cities to cleaner & cost-saving solutions today, while also creating new jobs and reducing inequalities.
Yet the key barriers are: 1) technical expertise, and 2) staff capacity for funding & implementation.
We are creating new opportunities for philanthropists + corporations to help transition our local communities to a clean economy.
Why local communities?
By 2030, nearly 65% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. Already, they account for 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions and 78% of global energy consumption. Cities will transition from the epicenter of emissions to the epicenter of a sustainable world.
Who do we work with?
Local Governments: We provide technical & funding assistance for local politicians & staff that are interested in or already implementing clean energy innovation, like solar energy, energy efficiency projects, electric vehicles, electric transit/school buses, biking infrastructure, and more. As fuel costs continue to rise, cities & counties are looking towards cost-saving opportunities with energy innovation.
Energy Innovation Companies: Local governments need assistance implementing these projects, such as installing solar panels or EV charging infrastructure. We are building bridges between the public sector and the private sector.
Financial Institutions: Cities need financing for most of these innovation projects, such as project finance or leasing for solar installations.
Grantwriters: The latest Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill is bringing billions of $$$ to local communities, so we are connecting local governments and grantwriters with these time-sensitive funding opportunities.
Philanthropists & Corporations: Major philanthropists & corporations are committing ambitious efforts towards their climate goals. We want to push corporations away from carbon offsets (e.g. planting trees) and towards funding zero-emission solutions in communities that will truly move the needle on global emissions.
We are looking for people who can get behind our vision/mission and are willing to give their time and expertise. In 2022, we will be bringing on people (advisor, part-time, full-time) who want to make a dent in climate action. We aren't posting official roles yet, but we are exploring needs for the following roles:
