Reinvent Fire: Change Energy Use Forever

Reinventing Fire maps pathways for running a 158%-bigger U.S. economy in 2050 but needing no oil, no coal, and no nuclear energy.

Reinventing Fire: Transportation‬

To wean our transportation system off of oil by 2050, America must tackle two main issues--vehicle design and vehicle use.

Reinventing Fire: Buildings

Energy efficiency technologies exist today to transform the nation's buildings--both old and new. The time is ripe: technologies are available, smart regional policies are proliferating, and the opportunity to deliver innovative, hassle-free energy products at scale is increasing.

Reinventing Fire: Industry

America’s strongest economic engine can become more competitive by accelerating adoption of energy efficiency, boosting cogeneration, and increasing on-site renewable supplies of heat and electricity.

Reinventing Fire: Electricity

Renewing our electricity system creates the ultimate clean energy carrier that will power our passenger cars and light trucks in addition to our buildings. And, thanks to innovation in maturing renewable technologies—like wind turbines and solar photovoltaics—the cost is rapidly becoming competitive with fossil-fuel burning alternatives.

I've always admired the Rockey Mountain Institute. Their emphasis here on the need to convert to distributed electricity production makes sense. I'm glad somebody's thinking clearly enough to plan coherently.
