2022 Year in Review
2022 was an exciting year for our portfolio, and for the markets where we have been most active.
Vehicle electrification has been a focus area of ours since before we launched in January 2020. In 2021, we celebrated the unstealthing of TeraWatt Infrastructure. A little over a year later, TeraWatt raised $1 billion led by Vision Ridge in one of the year’s biggest capital raises. Shortly after, we led the Series B of Xeal.
We previously described just how ^*#$(‘ed buildings are from an operational and efficiency standpoint; Arcadia, Redaptive, and PassiveLogic all raised capital this year as part of their mission to fix that.
The passage of the IRA dominated headlines toward the second half of last year – and for good reason, as it is historic, once-in-a-generation legislation. We dug into its implications for hydrogen and the bottlenecks it might face in its implementation.
