Rocky Mountains Institute (RMI)
Rocky Mountain Institute is an independent, entrepreneurial, nonprofit think-and-do tank that emphasizes integrative design, advanced technologies, and mindful markets in fulfilling its mission to drive the efficient and restorative use of resources
RMI’s strategic focus is to drive the business-led transition from fossil fuels to efficiency and renewables by 2050. In autumn 2011, we published an ambitious synthesis—Reinventing Fire: Bold Business Solutions for the New Energy Era—showing how that shift can be led by business for profit. Built on 30 years of research and collaboration in the four energy-using sectors of the economy—buildings, electricity, industry, and transportation—Reinventing Fire maps pathways for running a 158 percent-bigger U.S. economy in 2050 but needing no oil, no coal, no nuclear energy, and one-third less natural gas. This transition costs $5 trillion less than business as usual, counting all externalities at zero, and is attainable with no new inventions nor Acts of Congress.
