    Financing Low Carbon: What makes an energy transition fund "green"?

    Capital is increasingly available for Energy Transition, or "green" funds, particularly in private markets. What are the investment criteria for potential companies in such funds and how do those criteria vary as the companies scale? Is there a sufficient pipeline of "green" companies on which to deploy the available capital? What is the outlook for further "greening" of public market funds and how much impact might that have on driving low-carbon innovation?

How are investment models and strategies evolving in response to these new challenges?
