Energy That Is Clean, Cheap and Plentiful

Energy is an evolving landscape of entrenched incumbents, novel technologies, emerging business models, creative financing structures, and government regulation. This has created a unique confluence that necessitates discipline to balance business opportunities.

At iSelect, we invest in energy innovation that’s clean, cheap, and can be deployed without incentive or subsidy. Our thesis is simple: the easiest way to save energy is to make savings profitable.

We do this by partnering with exceptional companies and management teams, in both alternative and traditional energy markets, that are deploying solutions that are both cleaner and cheaper than the incumbents and can be developed without incentive or subsidy.

Given the unique landscape of the energy industry, iSelect believes lasting innovation is commercialized in concert with incumbents, not in opposition to them. To that end, we seek customer-driven innovation accelerated by strategic investment and scaled by capital-efficient project finance.

Join us to stay updated on the latest in energy startup information, technology development and to learn more about the entrepreneurs who are already driving this industry forward by merging existing technologies with novel business models and flexible financing structures.
