Taj has done more to help under-represented founders get funding than anyone I know.
Cleantech investment guru Taj Eldridge talks about creating community wealth, taking on climate action, how LACI is advancing the future of cleantech by partnering with VCs.
Climate change is heating up Los Angeles.
Successful sea trial makes it possible to extend life of oceanographic profiling floats, add additional sensors, and sample more frequently
LA is one of the most traffic-choked cities in America, and suffers from some of the worst air pollution in the nation. This has been exacerbated by a recent threefold rise in e-commerce deliveries, with diesel-powered delivery trucks exacerbating both congestion and pollution. However, change is coming for the better on both fronts, thanks to the vision of both the Mayor of Los Angeles and the many public and private stakeholders across the region. Many voices are calling for a zero emissions delivery zone—and LACI believes a pilot project zero emissions delivery zone is a key milestone for LA.
California needs more than a boost in electric vehicles and a 100% clean energy sector by 2045 to meet its climate goals.
Just as the lowly bicycle is poised to take make share away from passenger cars in cities, the e-cargo bike is poised to displace zero-emissions vans in urban cores.
Many states, cities and the infamously car-centric Los Angeles are doing their part to work toward a clean transportation future. Now it’s time for Congress to put its foot on the accelerator of an EV.
The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) and our Transportation Electrification Partnership members recently released the Zero Emissions 2028 Roadmap 2.0, an ambitious plan detailing the pathway we are working toward to create the zero emissions transportation future we want and need for the greater Los Angeles region. It’s a future that will result in cleaner air for residents and dramatically reduce the region’s transportation sector greenhouse gas emissions, reducing emissions an additional 25% beyond existing commitments tied to California state law. It’s a future that will take the integrated work of all the Partnership members and many other public and private sector allies, and we invite you to join us.
