The new wave in clean-energy tech is accelerating faster than Friday afternoon traffic on a Dallas expressway. And more private equity firms and their investors want in on the ground floor. Reese Energy Consulting today starts with the latest news from Texas-based Energy Transition Ventures, which this week launched as the first venture fund in the state dedicated exclusively to investing in new early-stage cleantech startups. With backing from conglomerate GS Group of Korea and a fund size of $75 million, ETV is ripe to cherry pick the latest innovations. N.C.-based developer 8 Rivers and startup NET Power have just announced plans to build the nation’s first zero-emission gas power plants using a new evolutionary power cycle that produces only liquid water and a stream of high-purity, pipeline-ready CO2. The Allam-Felvedt Cycle technology will enable utilities to still burn natural gas while capturing emissions, burying them underground, and offering lower-cost electricity. The firm’s $150 million 50MWth demonstration facility operates in La Porte, Texas.
