The Atlantic Mann Rebuttal

Journal or Magazine Article, 2013
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/2013-08_AtlanticMannRebuttal

On April 24, 2013, The Atlantic ran a cover feature by writer Charles C. Mann, “What If We Never Run Out of Oil?” The piece contained a number of inaccuracies, to which Rocky Mountain Institute co-founder and chief scientist Amory B. Lovins responded in a rebuttal the magazine posted on May 13, 2013. One day later, Mann offered a counter of his own, but perpetuated a range of errors. In this definitive reply, Lovins sets the record straight.

In its first year, eLab made significant strides towards building the capacity of change agents in the electricity sector, fostering the development of new ideas and solutions, and engaging directly with leaders to test and implement new ideas that can ultimately scale broadly throughout the industry.

 

A Review of Solar PV Benefit and Cost Studies

Report or White Paper, 2013
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/2013-13_eLabDERCostValue

This discussion document reviews 15 DPV benefit/cost studies by utilities, national labs, and other organizations to determine what is known and unknown about the categorization, methodological best practices, and gaps around the benefits and costs of DPV.  It also begins to establish a clear foundation from which additional work on benefit/cost assessments and pricing structure design can be built.

 

Comment on "Opportunities and challenges for a sustainable energy future" on Nature.com

Big Pipes, Small Pumps: Interface, Inc. Factor Ten Engineering Case Study

Report or White Paper, 2011
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/2011-04_BigPipesSmallPumps

This story of Interface Inc.’s Shanghai plant illustrates the pitfalls of the conventional design process—and the remarkable gains that are possible by rethinking basic assumptions. This paper describes how the lead designer Jan Schilham created a radical new layout with shorter, fatter pipes and smaller pumps to save nearly 90 percent of the energy—with lower capital costs. Several Factor Ten Engineering principles are highlighted in Schilham's design process.

Report or White Paper, 2011
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/2011-19_GoingDeeperEncouragingRetrofits
This paper describes a new approach to demand-side management that promotes whole-building projects and encourages owners, energy service providers, and utilities to work together for significant energy savings.

 

Autodesk AEC Headquarters and Integrated Project Delivery: Factor Ten Engineering Case Study

Report or White Paper, 2010
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/2010-16_AutodeskCaseStudy

This paper describes the design and construction of Autodesk’s Headquarters building. The building was a “triple win”: design and construction costs were below target (benefiting both the design-build team and owner); designer and contractor profits exceeded targets; and the building achieved LEED-CI Platinum and all other goals. The building demonstrates several principles of factor-ten engineering.
