Founder and Managing Partner
Ramez Naam has spent the past decade investing in climate and energy technologies and speaking around the world on the future of energy, transportation, climate change, and natural resources.
Ramez was one of the first to forecast the incredible price decline in clean energy. His seminal 2011 Scientific American article, “Smaller, Cheaper, Faster” observed that the cost of solar power was dropping exponentially and would eventually be lower than that of any other energy source. He’s since detailed the exponential trends in wind power, energy storage, and electric vehicles and their disruptive impact on virtually every sector of the global economy.
Ramez is also the co-Chair for Energy and Environment at Singularity University and the author of five books. Before turning to climate and energy, he spent 15 years in tech.
