“Technology can make the process of applying and distributing public funds more efficient and easier for the public. There is a gap in the market for policy-technology build-out to harmonize state and local governments for interaction around the capital available to fund some of the biggest and brightest solutions. I fund tools the development of this gap in the market to enable large-scale deployment and get the money where it needs to go. I am happy to announce that this will be done in partnership with Elected Officials to Protect America (EOPA) a non-partisan organization and more than 20,000 members of parliament across the country EOPA supports the Department of Energy in implementing the Inflation Reduction Act in partnership through the National Climate Task Force of our elected officials, veterans and tribal leaders.

The emerging technology-policy space will really shape the landscape as new forms of capital are unleashed. Technology can democratize access to public funding for applicants looking for the next climate solution and deliver some of the key SDGs and that’s why I’m investing in this new innovation.

Another solution highlighted in the Climate Change Lab led by Stephan Nicoleau, Managing Director of FullCycle commented on the need for deep methane mitigation. Nicoleau says:
“The science is clear – we need to implement deep methane mitigation and launch real assets that can reduce methane emissions in key sectors – oil and gas, agriculture and waste among others. The task now is to move private capital and create sustainable pathways for private sector resources to deploy methane-abating solutions at scale, mapped to country needs in a prioritized manner. We lead a private sector consortium coming together to support the Global Methane Pledge and recommend improvements to its principles to move closer to material methane reduction globally.
