SOLADYNE CAPITAL BRINGS TOGETHER THE WORLD'S LEADING
"Though Leaders": The Rocky Mountain Institute:The Rocky Mountain Institute is an independent, entrepreneurial nonprofit 'think-and-do tank™' that drives the efficient and restorative use of resources. Established in 1982 by Amory and Hunter Lovins, what began as a small group of colleagues focusing on energy solutions has since grown into a broad-based Institute with approximately 90 full-time staff, an annual budget of nearly $15 million, and a global reach.As a group of industry experts, thought leaders and engineers, RMI focuses on breaking through basic challenges related to energy and resources. Building on our success with the Empire State Building, RMI is taking retrofits to an even deeper level, finding ways to achieve bigger energy savings faster and applying them to a greater number and wider variety of building types.Under this new initiative, called RetroFit™, RMI hopes to spur the retroﬁt of at least 500 buildings within ﬁve years. RMI has teamed with SolaDyne Capital to advance projects under this initiative.Beyond that, RMI is designing additional projects with an even higher goal—to initiate a process that will encourage the retroﬁt of the entire U.S. commercial building stock to use, on average, 50 percent less energy by 2050.
