Japan Energy Fund aims to accelerate the transition to a decarbonized society in Japan by investing in leading climate tech solutions around the world. Together with our L.P.s, we leverage our expansive network across Japan to help our portfolio companies enter the Japanese market.
Who we are
Japan Energy Fund is a dedicated fund that invests in promising climate tech solutions around the world which have the potential to scale in Japan. We are the only fund from Japan that is purely focused on climate tech and investing in US/European startups.
Japan Energy Fund was founded in 2019 and started investing in renewable energy businesses in Turkey and Jordan as well as select venture companies. In September 2021, Japan Energy Capital announced the official launch of its second fund together with BIPROGY (formerly Nihon Unisys, Ltd.), ENECHANGE Ltd. and Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation to create its decarbonized tech fund dedicated to startup investments in climate tech, which was joined by Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank in June 2022. With a total fundraising target of $50M, we continue to expand our funds by new L.P. participation.
We have invested in a variety of climate tech solutions including battery tech, smart meter data analysis, offshore wind technology, Virtual Power Plants (VPP) and Demand Response (DR). We seek to further invest in technologies that accelerate our path to reach net zero.
