Altira GroupAltira Group Contact: Dirk McDermott
Altira’s mission is to invest in innovative energy technology companies that will impact the future of energy. We seek companies with strong management teams in natural resources, clean energy and electric power. Please note that we focus exclusively on technology: we do not invest in oil and gas production or power generation projects. Our investments are typically at the first outside round and follow-on stage and have ranged from $2 to $15 million. The majority of our investments have been in North American based companies.
Within the clean technology segment we have made investments in Energy and Power Solutions, Inc (energy management consulting), OPX BioProducts (green chemistry / white biotechnology), Lilliputian Systems, Inc (energy storage), Eco Power Solutions (pollution control / carbon mitigation), NxtGen Emission Controls (vehicle emissions control), Southwest Windpower, GridPoint, Inc (energy management), and Hyperion Power Generation, Inc (modular nuclear power).
