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. First crystals are the nucleation point.
We invest in innovative companies enabling our transition to a carbon-managed economy, primarily 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 safer, smarter, modular and far
more cost-effective advanced reactors will be
critical components of the carbon-free electric
grids of the future. These advanced reactors,
designed by a new generation of nuclear engineers,
will solve the problems facing conventional designs
while increasing grid reliability, resiliency and
our capacity to power carbon removal.
A BRighter Future is Possible
We believe that energy growth combined with the urgency to eliminate CO2 emissions will demand a more integrated and sophisticated combination of clean generation that doesn’t rely entirely on intermittent sources but which utilizes excess capacity to power a wide range of climate services. In this scenario, modular, high-capacity reactors help the world thrive by disrupting demand for carbon-emitting fossil fuels and powering CCUS.
