The initiative has the support of the richest investors in the world, including the CEO of the social network Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of the Chinese giant Alibaba, Jack Ma, Meg Whitman of HP and Reid Hoffman, co-founder of Linkedin, among others.

"The renewable technologies we have today, such as wind and solar, have made a lot of progress and could be a path to a zero-carbon energy future," Gates explained in a statement.

But, "given the scale of the challenge, we have to explore many different paths and that means we also have to invent new approaches," Gates said. The initiative involves 28 wealthy investors from 10 countries whose collective net worth exceeds $ 350 billion.

The goal of the project is to provide research capital for the most promising clean energy technologies.

"I am optimistic that we can invent the tools we need to generate clean, affordable and reliable energy that will help the poorest to improve their lives and also stop climate change," Gates said.

In parallel and as a complement to this private initiative, a total of 20 countries, including the five most populous - China, the US, India, Indonesia and Brazil - and the most polluting, agreed to double their investments in research on clean energy to address climate change, the White House reported.

Together, these nations account for 75 percent of global CO2 emissions, one of the main greenhouse gases, and more than 80 percent of the world's clean energy R&D investment.

In addition to increasing global public-private innovation in this type of energy, the agreement aims to provide affordable clean energy to consumers, particularly in the developing world, and create additional business opportunities in this sector.

Through this initiative, called “Mission Innovation” and also presented at the COP21 summit in Paris, the 20 countries commit to doubling their respective clean energy research and investment development (R&D) in five years.
