Falling solar costs have resulted nearly 10 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity being added per year in the US, while global solar installations should exceed 100 GW in 2018, with China ahead of the US in deployments. California is continuing to lead for the US, having just passed SB100 with a target of 100% clean electricity by 2045. Solar, wind, efficiency and energy storage will continue to cut costs globally, helping to transition utility electric grids away from coal and gas towards a green energy generation mix.
SJF has been investing in green energy and efficiency for two decades. We have helped drive down the cost of utility scale solar through NEXTracker, Community Energy and groSolar. We have helped improve efficiency in buildings, devices, the grid and transit through ENTOUCH, Ayla Networks, Versify, and TransLoc. And recently with Voltaiq, we are helping provide battery intelligence software for safer, cheaper, and more effective energy storage grid, in vehicles and in devices. We have written before about NEXTracker’s role in driving down the cost of utility scale power; the role of energy storage in enabling a cleaner, more resilient grid; and most recently on how Voltaiq is providing better data analytics to scale battery deployment. Now we are the hunt for the next, great electrification and clean energy entrepreneurs.
