achates-power-logo achates-power-logo

Achates Power’s opposed-piston engine design is more efficient than conventional engines, so that an engine consumes less fuel and emits commensurately less CO2. And because Achates’s opposed-piston engine design is mechanically simple and eliminates many of the parts found in conventional engines, it costs less to manufacture. This means a customer purchasing an opposed-piston engine for a long-haul heavy truck or off-road equipment could pay less for the engine and save money operating it.

Portfolio company testimonials

CIimate Investment’s support has been pivotal in enabling us to demonstrate this technology in the field, which is an important step in advancing the technology toward commercialization.

Claude Letourneau, President and CEO of Svante

We see CIimate Investment as our secret weapon for winning in our industry. Other players are only guessing what the industry needs, while we can make one call to CI and know with certainty exactly what our customers need. With CI as our partner, we can arrange a conversation with any player at any company in the industry.

Greg Rotenberg, Insight M (formerly Kairos Aerospace) CEO

We need to be able to access the C-level of different companies, and Climate Investment is helping on that front with its member companies, while also having a team inside CI helping us access those decision makers in order to accelerate the path to deployment.

Vincent Sciandra, METRON CEO

From Climate Investment, you get all the benefits of the strategic investor, but none of the downsides, because it is independent, yet you have access to the deeply technical and scientific membership base. Even before investing, the firm was critical in helping us understand the impact we are having on the industry. First and foremost, it was the chemistry of the team, which had a deeply scientific approach to the problem, and a lot of expertise around decarbonization and around how to assess and actually measure the impact.

Raphael Scheps, Converge CEO

As a start-up technology company, the challenges are getting connected to the customer and to getting to scale, and CI gives us the opportunity to interact with industry through its contacts and connections. When you have a great idea, it’s always difficult to transition to implementation, because customers want ‘big’ to begin with. But you have to start really small to get big, and CI appreciates that, it understands that space, and that's very helpful.

Russell Hill, Solidia’s CEO

The KeyState project is better in innumerable ways because of CI’s investment of time and money. KeyState was taken through the ringer for two years by CI and we are a better project in every way for it.

Perry Babb, KeyState’s CEO

The opportunity to partner with Climate Investment provides the capital and strategic relationships to bring nickel-zinc batteries into new global growth segments.

Tim Hysell, ZincFive CEO and Co-Founder

Climate Investment has been established to look for climate solutions in a serious way. So, it's important to be associated with it... The relationship has been very good since day one.

Tadeu Carneiro, Boston Metals CEO

For us, Climate Investment has provided access to each of its member companies, as well as enabling us to enter multiple different large supply chains, in a way that we, ourselves a small business, would not have been able to do efficiently. And of course, the financing brought to us by CI has helped accelerate our business plan.
