⚡️ How to stay warm without overheating the planet
With the increases in gas prices, government policies promoting sustainable heating, consumer demand and declining costs, the market opportunity for sustainable space heating is growing. However, venture capital funding is lagging — less than 1% of all climate tech VC investments were made here.* I am on the lookout for climate funds that see this potential.
Some examples of startups reinventing heating:
Woltair uses AI and software to help homeowners find the optimal heating solution(s) and seamlessly get it installed
Triple Solar develops heat pump panels that use solar radiation to heat water directly, making electric heating easier and more efficient
GA Drilling allows access to geothermal energy in deeper locations, which means more carbon-free heat in many more places
Noon Energy develops a low-cost carbon-oxygen battery technology to store electricity for 100+ hours. Clean Energy Ventures led its $28m Series A funding round.
Aerones revolutionizes the complex and costly process of wind turbine maintenance and repair. Its robot-enabled solutions are up to six times faster, 40% more efficient and safer than conventional solutions. It secured $30m in its latest funding round, co-led by Lightrock.
Fungauses DNA sequencing and machine learning tech to place the right fungal microbiome in the right place to improve forestry outcomes and sequester more carbon. Azolla Ventures led its $4m seed funding round.

Sweden's discovery of 1 million tons of rare earth materials (1% of total global reserves) is good news for the energy transition. With 98% of the EU’s rare earth imports currently coming from China, the newfound reserves also help the EU move towards a more self-sufficient and sustainable energy future.
The Alliance is a call to action for all private asset managers to better represent their clients’ long-term interests by integrating climate change considerations — especially climate risk management — across all their business activities, including investment decisions. I hope it catches on!
The European Commission has outlined its Green Deal Industrial Plan for Europe to grow and safeguard green industry in the race towards net zero. Subsidies, simplified regulation, skills development and trade openness are proposed as key elements of the Plan, which EU Member States must first approve.
Founded by the founders of The Vegetarian Butcher (De Vegetarische Slager), the Belgian food-tech company has created its first animal-free cheese. Its manufacturing machine, “Margaret,” utilizes microbes for proteins, a process that can revolutionize the dairy industry.
Last year, sales of plant-based meat replacements stalled. Where some thought this was the end of the growth curve, Pablo Moleman explains that it’s situational. The most important metric? Market share — and as meat sales have decreased more than those of alternative proteins, we’re still heading in the right direction.

This website in itself does not entail any offer of any security or an invitation to make an offer to purchase any security to any individual in any jurisdiction where such is not permitted according to the applicable law and regulations.
The Funds of Carbon Equity B.V. will only be offered to potential investors at a later stage pursuant to fund documentation to be prepared and distributed by Carbon Equity B.V., through a dedicated account environment and clearly indicated as such. Any person should note that the Carbon Equity B.V. Funds will eventually exclusively be offered by Carbon Equity B.V. to potential investors in permitted jurisdictions who commit to an initial investment of at least EUR 100,000 or fall under other applicable exemptions. Carbon Equity B.V. will act as the Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) of the Funds and will benefit from the Dutch sub-threshold regime, pursuant to article 2:66a of the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (Wet op het financieel toezicht).
As such, the Carbon Equity B.V. will benefit from an exemption from the license requirement and ongoing requirements of the AIFMD. Moreover, no prospectus requirement applies in light of article 1(4)(d) of the Prospectus Regulation. Any Funds and Carbon Equity B.V. will therefore fall outside the scope of supervision of the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (Autoriteit Financiële Markten, AFM) and the Dutch Central Bank (De Nederlandsche Bank, DNB)
Carbon Equity does not make investment recommendations and no communication, through this website or in any other medium should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. Alternative investments in private placements, and private equity investments via feeder funds in particular, are speculative and involve a high degree of risk and those investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest. Prospective investors should carefully consider the risk warnings and disclosures for the respective fund or investment vehicle set out therein. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and investors may not get back their money originally invested. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. An investment in a fund or investment vehicle is not the same as a deposit with a banking institution. Please refer to the respective fund documentation for details about potential risks, charges and expenses. Additionally, investors will typically receive illiquid and/or restricted membership interests that may be subject to holding period requirements and/or liquidity concerns. In the most sensible investment strategy for venture capital investing, venture capital should only be a part of your overall investment portfolio. Further, the venture capital portion of your portfolio may include a balanced portfolio of different venture capital funds. Investments in venture capital are highly illiquid and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 10 years) should not invest.
