Tupper Lake invests in technology companies that address all areas of energy. We strive to advance both renewable and traditional energy toward increased efficiency, improved effectiveness, and sustainability.

Under any forecast scenario, global energy demand will grow for decades due to the strong secular drivers of population growth and increasing energy intensity of developing nations. We believe many forms of energy will be necessary to meet this demand.’

On top of this growing demand, it is no longer acceptable to produce energy “at any cost” without considering global sustainability. Over 100 countries have signed-on to the Paris Agreement, and corporations and asset managers across the globe are committing to net-zero targets by 2050. Tupper Lake supports the rigorous pursuit of these targets, but understands they require time and a balanced approach to energy supply.

Tupper Lake believes the increased adoption of technology is key to unlocking better investment returns in our focus areas.

The forms of technology in which we are investing include software, hardware and IOT (internet of things / connectivity).

Technology will drive increased efficiency in renewable energy (making it cheaper and more accessible), traditional energy (making it cleaner and more sustainable) and broad decarbonization.


Our unique team approach helps accelerate early-stage companies.

An Undeniable Trend In Energy Investing

There is an undeniable trend in energy investing today that guides our investment strategies: no matter what the form, the future of energy will be shaped by a lower carbon footprint and a higher degree of sustainability.

Tupper Lake is investing in technology companies that will deliver this future of energy.

Renewable forms of energy, such as solar, wind, storage, biomass and hydrogen) must be cheaper to produce and more accessible to consume than they are today.

Long term sustainability of renewable energy sources demands a business model that is sustainable both economically and environmentally. Technology can be used to help achieve this.

Traditional forms of energy can be developed and consumed in a more efficient manner, through the technology-enabled evolution of the energy supply chain.

Traditional forms of energy – such as oil and natural gas – are necessary to bridge the energy supply chain as it transitions to more renewable sources (which will likely take decades). In addition to satisfying energy demand, oil and natural gas are also used to create essential products for everyday living.
