CalCEF is a $30 million nonprofit venture capital fund formed in 2004 to accelerate the development of promising early-stage clean energy technologies. The Fund arises from the California electricity crisis and the ensuing bankruptcy settlement negotiated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). CalCEF dedicates its capital to entrepreneurs that are developing technology or products that could benefit the region, the state of California, and the clean energy transition broadly. To date, CalCEF has operated as a fund-of-funds in partnership with private investors, leveraging its funds in a broad pool of investable capital.
