The second $200,000 grant to the City and County of San Francisco distributed October 2007 for the San Francisco's Wave Energy Feasibility Study. The third $200,000 grant was distributed October 2007 to the Clinton Climate Initiative which works directly with the governments of the 40 largest cities worldwide to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The fourth $200,000 grant was distributed in December of 2007 to Brown University in support of its development and creation of and meaningful opportunities to impact the environment while benefiting Brown and the local community and engaging student learning.
