Energy Innovation and the Environment
History of the Working Group
Anthropogenic greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels, clearing land, agriculture and industry have exceeded the planet’s capacity to manage solar radiation and maintain the current biosphere. Scientific studies indicate significant negative weather, natural disaster probabilities increasing and economic instability. This will produce additional negative long-term outcomes for biological diversity and vulnerable human populations while we continue to exceed this planetary limit. Current policy and technological trajectories fail to reach scientific expectations for achieving climate stabilization.
The NEXUS Working Group on Energy Innovation & Environment evolved in 2016 from the NEXUS Climate Lab to facilitate NEXUS engagement on these issues and help stabilize the climate and ecological crisis.
The NEXUS Working Group on Energy Innovation & Environment builds bridges to amplify connections, knowledge and engagement on climate solutions.

Climate Science Call Series
Speakers series by call scientists, CEOS, experts and organization leaders in the climate and clean energy space
High-level exclusive delegations and trips to meet with the leaders in climate and energy technology and investing. In 2017 we took a climate-focused trade delegation to meet with French President Macron and his government. What will we do next?
Salon dinners with international speakers in intimate settings organized globally around the topics of clean tech, climate policy and other forward thinking solutions to solve the biggest crisis of our time
If you are interested in, invest in or work on climate positive solutions, alternative energy and clean tech, we’d love to hear from you. Whether you are looking to get more involved or willing to support our mission through a grant or sponsorship, please reach out!
