EIP was founded in 2015 by industry veterans on the premise of advancing the transition towards a cleaner and more sustainable energy future.
our team has been investing in climate tech, long before it got popular. we understand the exciting opportunities and particular challenges this fascinating industry offers. as pioneers of corporate venture capital, we custom-built EIP to bring together incumbents and innovators in a differentiated collaborative model allowing us to better screen and scale businesses for sustainable impact. around a core of influential utilities, we assembled a powerful ecosystem of more than 65 forward-looking corporations and industrials from key sectors such as the built environment, transportation, industry, finance – seeking to decarbonize the global economy. our dedicated research team provides them with insights and advice, they in turn share their learnings and help accelerate the growth of our investments.
together we have built a platform with more than $3 billion assets under management, 80+ experienced investors, researchers and operators, working with hundreds of our partners’ experts, delivering more than $500mm in pilots and business to our portfolio of 110+ companies, covering key asset classes of the net zero carbon transition across the US and Europe from venture & growth to credit and infrastructure.
