The vehicle currently is in the market with a target of around $150 million, a source familiar with the situation told peHUB. HarbourVest has held at least one close on $95.5 million in commitments and has set a $250 million hard cap, according to a February 17 SEC filing.

The management company, called HarbourVest Cleantech Associates, was formed in April 2008. HarbourVest declined to comment.
