Decarbonizing Industry: RMI’s push for the Next Industrial Revolution

The Rocky Mountain Institute has long been at the forefront of designing pathways to a livable future.

Because industry decarbonization is critical to maintaining a 1.5°C pathway, Rocky Mountain Institute’s Industry program is on a mission to decarbonize the world’s goods and services, including how they are designed, produced, sourced, and delivered.

Hear LeeAnn Baronett on RMI’s push for the next industrial revolution that achieves massive decarbonization of industry worldwide as a necessary (and profitable!) response to the dictates of climate change and resource depletion.
LeeAnn will outline the Seven Challenges to Energy Transition which frame RMI’s approach and cover several key domains including mineral extraction, metals, methane, hydrogen, and heavy transport.

Before joining RMI, LeeAnn worked for the microgrid company HOMER Energy, for NREL, and in eduction.
