The cleantech growth journey: CEO retreat
Written on the wind
Expanding the electric vehicle experience
Transformational growth and opportunities
From start-ups to large corporations and national governments, organizations worldwide are embracing cleantech as a means of growth, efficiency and competitive advantage. Will you be a part of the next industrial revolution?
Tap into our knowledge and industry on emerging and expanding cleantech issues:
- Electric vehicles are moving into the fast lane
Battery-powered electric vehicles (EV) are poised to change the social, political and economic landscape – while also transforming existing vehicle manufacturers and creating new enterprises and business models. In partnership with our Global Automotive and Global Power & Utilities Centers, the Global Cleantech Center is exploring this new emerging ecosystem.
- Smart grid encourages new partnerships
Along with our Power and Utilities network, we are helping our clients understand the implications of the power transmission efficiency and smart grid, and plot their strategies accordingly.
Creating the smart grid will ultimately mean adopting technologies that transform today’s existing electricity grid. In other words, it needs to adapt to the 21st century by becoming more efficient, reliable and able to integrate renewable energy sources.
Smart grids and smart metering are high on the list of company investment priorities. If you’re considering rolling out a smart grid initiative, our approach — grounded in industry-specific experience and committed to delivering measurable, sustainable results — can help you adapt and succeed.
- Chief Capital Officers: essential or not?
Just as the world thirsts for clean energy, companies are striving to provide for their thirst for capital. In conjunction with the Global TAS Capital Agenda initiative, we are examining the need for early stage companies to focus on these specialized skills.
Practically speaking, companies — cleantech and otherwise — should be thinking about their capital base in four dimensions:
- Raising capital
- Investing capital
- Preserving capital
- Optimizing capital
Within certain segments of cleantech, the capital needs are enormous because most of the technologies and infrastructure that will power the future are still in early-stage development or just entering commercialization. This leaves a funding gap that will require focus, innovation and no small degree of determination to fill.

- Water technologies are in demand
In both emerging and western geographies, the demand for water is increasing at rates that cannot be satisfied with existing systems and sources – globally, the demand for potable water is expected to double in the next 20 years. From investors to global corporations, new technologies and businesses are being created to address this global opportunity.
