  • RMI (formerly Rocky Mountain Institute) is an independent, non-partisan nonprofit “think-and-do” tank that drives the efficient and restorative use of resources. RMI advances market-based solutions, engaging businesses, communities, and institutions to cost-effectively shift to efficiency and renewables. RMI employs rigorous research, analysis, and whole-systems expertise to develop breakthrough insights. To advance the organization’s mission and propel the industry, RMI developed the Innovation Center in Basalt, Colorado in December 2015. Similar in size and program to about 90% of all commercial buildings in the United States, this project is the first in the world to achieve both Phius Passive Building Standard and Source Zero Energy certification and demonstrates the feasibility of achieving net zero commercial buildings today.
