Jericho Energy Ventures (JEV) is a publicly traded, deep-tech venture capital and incubator platform, backing world-class Company’s, founders, and technologies, leveraged to long-term decarbonization themes including hydrogen, carbon capture and energy storage.
Jericho Energy Ventures is a unique opportunity allowing public equity investors to gain exposure to and participate in high-growth hydrogen-related themes with a global reach. We invest in early stage and near commercial ready clean technologies driving decarbonization in hard-to-abate commercial and industrial sectors (think: energy, utilities, materials, and heavy-duty mobility). And we target venture-scale like returns (5-10x ROI) for our efforts and your capital.
Not a venture capitalist, material scientist or chemist? That’s OK – let us do that for you. We are about doing the heavy lifting, creating opportunity and access; making sustainable investing simple for every investor.
We believe the energy transition is complex and needs a specialist approach. We provide:
We seek to address structural constraints (read: invest in technical solutions) affecting many industries’ ability to adopt hydrogen as a fuel, feedstock, and store of energy. Jericho has a near-term focus on current off takers and consumers of hydrogen to decarbonize their process. Not many people know but hydrogen is already a $150 billion market per year…the demand is already there!
JEV bifurcates its investment strategy into disruptive and value creating hydrogen technologies in two ways:
We believe the best way to value our Company is based on our future Net Asset Value.
Short-term value is driven by key technical and business milestones of the underlying venture investments and incubated businesses, while medium- and long-term value are driven by investment returns, spinouts and / or incubated business line revenue and profits.
The urgency around addressing climate change is leading to a fundamental reshaping of finance. Consumers and investors alike share an increased interest in sustainability and that means every company – regardless of sector – must have a plan to adapt their business for the future low-carbon economy. With the adoption of legislated net zero targets by governments around the world, the focus has shifted to action and implementation: how exactly are these targets to be met?
According to IRENA, achieving Net Zero on a global scale would require $130 TRILLION of investment over the next 20 years…that’s a structural trend we can get behind!
Hydrogen is a required clean molecule for our global Net Zero ambitions. That’s why over 70 Countries have outlined Hydrogen Roadmaps for their decarbonization goals to utilize hydrogen as a fuel, feedstock, and store of energy.
Bank of America has compared the current phase of the hydrogen market to smartphones pre-2007 and the internet pre-dot.com. It estimates that hydrogen could generate 24% of our energy needs by 2050, creating as much as $11 trillion in investment opportunities over the next couple decades.
In November 2021, the U.S. government passed an infrastructure bill with $21 billion in funding for clean energy demonstrations and research hubs focused on next generation technologies needed to achieve our goal of net-zero by 2050, including $10 billion for carbon capture and $9.5 billion for clean hydrogen – turbo-charging our progress towards heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without carbon emissions.
