ARENA funds projects that advance renewable energy technologies along the innovation chain, from the early research stage in the lab to the later demonstration stage in the field.
We accelerate ideas so that renewable energy technologies and supporting systems can more quickly become affordable and more reliable. We take a portfolio approach, and have a diverse investment profile.
