Our Climate Tech venture portfolio
Image Pattern Project are addressing overproduction in the fashion industry with an AI-driven supply chain and digital twin service for made-to-order garment manufacturing
The following startups have been launched and invested in by Carbon13’s Venture Builder and Venture Launchpad.
Each venture is solving the climate emergency, with the potential to mitigate CO₂e emissions by at least 10 million tonnes per annum when at scale.
Adia envisions a future where the energy transition is seamless. By leveraging commoditized hardware with digital twins of the built environment, Adia adapts our existing infrastructure to a decarbonized future.
Introducing the HydraPulse, a remarkable advancement in sustainable energy generation. Central to its design is the revolutionary Stephenson Turbine (TST), an impulse turbine technology that stands at the forefront of innovation. Enclosed within the HydraPulse, this pioneering turbine design achieves unparalleled efficiency and power output, surpassing conventional approaches.
Optimise-AI is transforming building energy management, through its virtualised Building Management System (BMS) technology, that harnesses the power of digital twins. This cutting-edge solution delivers actionable insights, even for the 90% of commercial buildings that currently lack a traditional BMS. As a result, clients consistently achieve impressive energy and carbon savings, typically exceeding 40%.
Installing solar for businesses, with no upfront cost or long-term contracts – removing the uncertainly that todays solar options bring. Using smart software to originate, aggregate and remotely control these distributed systems to maximize investor returns.
Open Hydro is the leading platform that automates water GHG emissions quantification, allocation, and mitigation opportunities at any given point in the supply chain. The platform provides the most accurate water emissions data aligned with internationally recognised reporting frameworks.
In doing so, they help mobilise climate-aligned investments in water infrastructures to ensure the decarbonisation of freshwater systems.
Ki Hydrogen is a deep-tech climate venture using biomass electrolysis to produce green hydrogen at cost parity to fossil fuel based hydrogen. Their innovative technology uses up to 75% less energy compared with water electrolysis, while also producing valuable chemical commodities to be sold as co-products.
Aed Energy designs and builds thermal energy storage technology enabling reliable, clean, and low-cost power. We aim to radically advance the long duration energy storage market by providing deployable, low-cost thermal storage batteries – a critical enabler for the widescale deployment of renewable energy across electricity grids worldwide.
Sunjul is redefining what solar software means, when designing project for farms. Their models integrate data on crop compatibility, climate and financial risk, to understand how agriculture and solar can co-exist and benefit from one another. This enables accelerated development and financing for projects in a new but essential solar sector, agrivoltaics.
There are 3 billion tonnes of CO2e emissions from water per year due to methane. Currently there is no way to remove this methane at scale, until now. Bluemethane is a technology startup developing a first-of-a-kind, scalable data and hardware solution to capture a billion tonnes of greenhouse gases from water. With methane’s global warming power 34x that of carbon, Bluemethane is tackling a core problem for global warming.
PuriFire Labs is a circular waste technologies company. Their patented technology converts plastic and other municipal waste into value-added products such as animal feed and electricity with minimal upfront sorting. Their solution makes waste management capital and energy efficient and will reduce millions of tons of CO2e from the waste management industry.
