Nucleation [n(y)ü-klē-ˈā-shən]: the earliest stage of a change of physical phase, such as the re-arrangement of atoms from liquid to solid. Through Nucleation Capital, investors participate at an early stage in creating our carbon-managed future.

Nucleation Capital invests in innovative companies enabling our transition to a carbon-managed economy. Our focus is on early-stage ventures working primarily on advanced nuclear energy, advanced smart grids and deep decarbonization ventures.

A carbon-managed economy?


The world needs powerful, clean, reliable, carbon-free energy solutions so that we can power our planet without destroying it.  As global electricity consumption grows in the coming decades, we need to prevent new emissions and draw down on existing emissions in order to restore a safe climate for ourselves, our children and future generations.

Why Advanced Nuclear?

Along with deployments of renewables, many believe that smaller, modular and far more cost-effective advanced reactors will be critical components of the carbon-free electric grids of the future.  These advanced reactors will solve problems facing conventional designs while increasing grid reliability, resiliency and our capacity to power carbon removal.

A BRighter Future is Possible


The world’s urgent need to eliminate CO2 emissions combined with rising global energy demand requires a more integrated and weather-robust combination of clean generation paired with climate services. In this scenario, renewables combined with advanced reactors allow the world to thrive by disrupting demand for fossil fuels and decoupling economic activity from emissions.
