In November 2016, OGCI launched a billion–dollar investment vehicle, Climate Investments.

We invest in technologies that have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and that are economically viable. We are building a global network of partners and co-investors to achieve speed and scale.

Our focus is on innovative companies with promising technology and business models that are ready to be commercialized.

We are looking to work with driven and experienced entrepreneurs and teams that have the determination to turn their innovations into outcomes.

Areas of focus

Our aim is to catalyze the development and deployment of the technology and business models that show the greatest potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our areas of focus are:

Carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS)

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS)

Investing in novel solutions that are economically viable and scaleable to separate, capture, utilize and store co2.

Minimizing methane emissions

Reducing methane emissions

Investing in technologies and solutions to reduce methane emissions from well to point of use.

Improving energy efficiency in transport

Reducing transport emissions

Investing in technologies and partnerships to accelerate reduction of transport related emissions.

Improving energy efficiency in industry

Improving energy efficiency in industry

Investing in hardware, software and business models to boost industrial energy efficiency.

Climate Investment in action

In 2017 we invested in a range of ventures that we’ve identified can make the most impact on greenhouse gas emissions. Highlights include:

Carbon capture, utilization, & storage

Clean Gas Project

Our first investment was a project that aims to design a full scale gas power plant with carbon capture and storage, including industrial CO2 sequestration capability. OGCI Climate Investments will work with the project team on a commercially viable concept and basic engineering design that can receive government support and attract private sector investors.

Solidia Technologies

We invested in Solidia Technologies, a US-based pioneer in the heavy-emitting cement and concrete industry. Solidia has patented technology that allows cement to be produced more efficiently, and that uses carbon dioxide to harden concrete. These innovations have the potential to reduce the carbon footprint of cement and concrete by as much as 70% and water consumption by up to 80%.
