Calling All Curious Minds! Join RMI for a Discussion About Reinventing Fire.
How can we get to a new energy era without new federal laws?
Do we really have the technology to get off coal, oil and nuclear energy?
How can we capture $5 trillion in saved economic value—creating jobs and driving global competitiveness—by 2050?
Today Thursday, December 1 at 1:00 p.m. (EST), join us for a live chat with Eric Maurer to answer all of your burning questions about Reinventing Fire, RMI’s boldest vision yet about how business can drive the new energy era and lead the transition to a more secure, robust, and healthy future for our nation. (See the live chat console at the bottom of the page. You don’t need to have an account to participate. Simply ask a question.)
A consultant with Rocky Mountain Institute, Maurer contributed to the research and writing of the electricity chapter, coordinating the post-submission production of Reinventing Fire and the Knowledge Center.
In today’s digital age, it is not enough to simply publish a book such as Reinventing Fire and call it done. To reach as many people as possible, we created an infographic and a video to tell the story. Additionally, we’ve posted dozens of reference points for our conclusions and recommendations in our new Knowledge Center. Thousands of people have taken the time to view and share these resources.
Check out the infographic and video below and then join us for a live chat to explore all the details.
The willingness of our visionary supporters to fund RMI’s work was critical to bring Reinventing Fire from vision to reality. And because so many RMI supporters and followers are passionate about energy and well-versed in the nuances of the topic, we know you have questions!
We look forward to a robust discussion touching on a variety of topics.
