Type of Support
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.
