    Formed in 1996, Altira invests in companies that develop and commercialize energy technologies in the areas of natural resources, clean energy and electric power. The firm's investments span: Oil and Gas - upstream and downstream; Information Technology for the energy industry; Electric Power - generation, transmission and distribution; and Renewable Energy - solar, wind and tide-generated, biofuels, and hydrogen. With five energy technology funds, totaling $300 million in active, hands-on investments and a sum history of over $1 billion invested in 50 companies, the firm invests in privately-held, early stage and growth companies located throughout North America, and will consider investments outside the region when appropriate. Altira's initial investment may be as little as $3 million and as much as $10 million. In March of 2014, the firm announced the closing of Altira Technology Fund VI LP.
