For several decades now, the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) has become known for their cutting-edge research on renewable energy technology (Soft Energy Paths), resource planning expertise, and more. Recently, they also launched their Built Environment Team (BET) and Mobility + Vehicle Efficiency Team (MOVE).
“…is a new energy paradigm focused on the integration of how we use energy. It is made possible by the convergence of energy in the transportation, electricity grid and building sector enabled by plug-in vehicles. It combines key industry endeavors such as smart charging, Vehicle to Grid, V2Building, and the smart grid.
