The invVEST team has identified 3 Sustainable Energy Initiatives in the US for massive scaling:
1. Balanced SEI Portfolio that optimizes
- Technology Initiatives

BreakThrough Solar Initiative: Successful implementation of Breakthrough Solar initiative will lead to Massive scaling that will drive down the price of Solar Energy below fossil fuel energy prices creating 3m+ jobs by 2030. Read about the detailed BreakThrough Solar Initiative (pdf).

2. Education Initiative: Read invVEST Education Initiative Overview for STRATEGY & PLAN.
- High school
- Adult (parent & community effort)
Enable massive support by involving citizens, students, faculty/administrators, colleges & universities in a grassroots movement to change our behavior through SEI educational curriculum. We believe this will be a catalyst for the other two initiatives and generate funding upto $45B/year for the educational community.
3. Energy Efficiency & Conservation:
Energy Efficiency & Conservation Initiative: USA consumes 54% more energy compared to OECD Europe. invVEST goal is to reduce US energy consumption per capita incrementally by 1% a year for 12 years for a total 12% reduction by 2020. For every 1% energy savings, we save $30B/year in savings. and create 1m+ jobs. See invVEST Publications for more information.
