Climate disclosure laws miss the mark

Rather than adding undue burdens to businesses and consumers that provide little benefit to investors, lawmakers should look to reduce harmful barriers that inhibit capital formation, innovation and economic growth."

First electric cars. Next, electric factories?

"For temperatures of up to 200°C, the technology attracting most attention is not the electric kettle but the industrial heat pump. Heat pumps, like refrigerators, move heat from one place to another. In a fridge the heat is removed from the inside (keeping the contents cooler) and dumped outside (making the kitchen a little warmer). Heat pumps, which are becoming increasingly common for domestic heating, take heat from outside and move it inside. Because the amount of energy needed to move heat this way is lower than the amount needed to heat things up directly, this can lead to big energy savings. And as the technology improves and sales increase, prices are falling."

Wall Street warms to climate tech

"Last April, the private equity giant Apollo became one of the first mainstream investment firms to take an interest in helping climate tech firms navigate the valley of death. That term refers to the phase in an industrial technology company’s development when it needs more money than venture capitalists can offer to reach commercial scale, but it remains too speculative for a bank loan. (Climate software startups, which don’t need to build massive infrastructure projects to scale up, don’t face the same funding challenges.)"
