Over a decade ago, Ardsley Partners began to move increasingly into the clean-technology sector with its long-term investment approach. In 2006, the firm launched the Ardsley Partners Renewable Energy Fund, L.p., investing in targeted public equities which address the growing global energy problem. The fund started with $15 million in assets and has since grown to approximately $100 million.

In addition to the Ardsley Partners Renewable Energy Fund, L.P.'s mandate to invest in green technology, Ardsley also donates one tenth of the management fee proceeds to GRID Alternatives, a renewable energy nonprofit based in Oakland, California. This organization works with underprivileged communities to help fund and install solar panels in local residences and institutions.
