  • To get from 51 billion tons

  • of greenhouse-gas emissions to zero,

  • we need to change the way we make

  • just about everything in the next 30 years.

  • This is the greatest opportunity for innovation

  • in human history.

  • We're going to build the trillion-dollar

  • global industries of tomorrow.

  • Some of the solutions we need,

  • like wind and solar power,

  • are already starting to compete

  • with the fossil-fuel incumbents they were designed to replace.

  • But for many of the newer technologies

  • we need to bring down the cost

  • and demonstrate that they work in real world situations.

  • So we have to invest in large-scale commercial plants,

  • which are often too risky for traditional investment.

  • We need to innovate, not just in the technologies,

  • but in how the public and private sectors come together

  • to build this scale.

  • We've seen this work before with solar energy.

  • But even in that case it took fifty years

  • to go from powering calculators to powering cities.

  • And we can't afford to wait fifty years.

  • And that's why Breakthrough Energy is launching

  • the Catalyst program to bring the next generation of climate solutions

  • to market in time and at a low enough cost

  • to avoid a climate disaster.

  • We're bringing together philanthropists,

  • governments, and leading companies

  • to make bold investments in technologies with great promise

  • but with a long road to commercial success.

  • These investments won't just help reduce emissions,

  • they'll also create new, high-paying jobs for decades to come.

  • The early investors in these technologies

  • will be recognized for their contributions.

  • That's why we're creating

  • Catalyzed Emissions Reduction Framework

  • which measures the reductions in emissions

  • and the cost of these new technologies over time.

  • This framework will let our funding partners

  • be recognized for the impact of their contributions.

  • The first four technologies we're focusing on are:

  • Green hydrogen where we split water molecules,

  • and we use the hydrogen for power.

  • Second is long-duration energy storage

  • so we can use intermittent sources like solar,

  • even when the sun isn't shining.

  • Third is sustainable aviation fuel

  • where we take biological inputs,

  • including municipal waste,

  • and we convert it to replacement jet fuel.

  • Fourth and finally, direct air capture

  • where we literally take the carbon out of the air

  • and store it away where it'll no longer cause any heating.

  • In science, a catalyst is a substance

  • that accelerates a chemical reaction.

  • Our Catalyst program is designed

  • to accelerate the journey of innovation

  • for the technologies we need to avoid a climate disaster.

  • I'm optimistic we can succeed if we act boldly, together.
