"Vertum Partners is an early phase, small business start-up. The partnership was established after recognizing that the atmospheric modeling capabilities of the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability's regional climate group could be disseminated to the renewable energy business community through the combined expertise of our three founders. We hope to continue to learn from the research being conducted and the researchers themselves at the Institute of the Environment and UCLA as a whole."
