Overview
The New Venture Fund’s Moving Beyond Oil project aims to contribute to the reduction of oil use and to the transition to clean-energy alternatives in the transportation sector in the United States. After the Climate Agreement in Paris, there is even more consensus that in order to keep climate mitigation goals on track, a reduction of about 50 percent in oil use by 2030 is necessary. This year’s priorities include the integration of clean transportation policies in key states, such as California, with the prevention of new infrastructure for high-carbon oil development.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund  
The New Venture Fund’s Climate and Clean Energy Equity Fund will support groups in select states and cities working to transition to a clean energy future in ways that promote economic, social, and environmental justice — minimizing risks and maximizing benefits to low-income communities. The Fund’s climate equity framework addresses the need to broaden the base of support for climate action in order to accelerate the pace of change. The Fund will help organizations grow their memberships, strengthen their organizing skills, and build their capacity to advocate for strong clean-energy and climate policies.
