Overview
The New Venture Fund’s Moving Beyond Oil project aims to contribute to the reduction of oil use and to the transition to clean energy alternatives in the transportation sector in the United States. To keep climate mitigation goals on track, a reduction of about 50 percent in oil use by 2030 is necessary. The project will develop and implement synergistic and integrated strategies to reach this target in key regions on the country. One of its near-term priorities is to support the Pacific Northwest region to establish low-carbon fuel standards that reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Open Internet Defense Fund  
This grant will support the Open Internet Defense Fund, a project of the New Venture Fund, and its work to promote an open internet. It will focus on protecting net neutrality, the principle that internet service providers and government should treat all data on the internet equally, not discriminating or charging differentially by user or content. The fund both provides grants to organizations engaged in open internet work and coordinates coalitions of those organizations.
for the Moving Beyond Oil project  
The New Venture Fund’s Moving Beyond Oil project aims to contribute to the reduction of oil use and the transition to clean-energy alternatives in the transportation sector in the United States. This grant will seek to ensure that the country reduces oil production and consumption sufficiently to achieve our Paris 2020 emission reduction targets. In the absence of strong federal leadership, the climate work will shift to several key states, such as Washington, California, New York, New Jersey, Oregon, and Minnesota.
