Rocky Mountain Institute transforms global energy use to create a clean, prosperous, and secure low-carbon future. That is our mission. That is our passion. And every day, every member of our team of nearly 230 works tirelessly to achieve it. We are driving the global energy transition from fossil fuels to efficiency and renewables by working in partnership with businesses, communities, institutions, and entrepreneurs to advance market-based solutions. We achieve this by developing breakthrough ideas, testing and refining them, reshaping markets, and bringing solutions to scale. RMI is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with an annual budget of $46 million and offices in Basalt and Boulder, Colorado; New York City; Washington, D.C.; and Beijing.

Our cutting-edge work includes reducing carbon emissions from the buildings, electricity, industry, and mobility sectors. We help US cities and states meet their energy and climate targets, advise people of emerging economies how to leapfrog straight to the clean energy revolution, help align global investment with clean energy goals, and identify and scale new pathways to speed the global energy transition.
