Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) is providing much needed leadership to help companies and policy makers navigate the energy transition. Hawaii in particular, in cooperation with RMI, has "cracked the code" on how to engage all stakeholders in reaching a consensus solution to achieving reliable energy supply in a decentralized energy supply chain with a changing fuel mix. Driven by customer demand, climate change and reliability needs, utilities and others are finding that rapid changes in today's power sector require something beyond traditional regulation. David Littell, Principal, Regulatory Assistance Project, a highly regarded expert in energy regulatory policies across New England provides us with a clear understanding of why innovtive thinking is needed now: "Existing regulatory processes were designed for the different purposes of the 20th century system and won't work in the rapidly transforming 21st century."
I've relied on the excellent, objective analysis of many RMI papers in the past, and I'm confident that RMI is the most proficient leader to rely on during this phase transition. Congratulations RMI and great work on the REBA marketplace - a true innovation for the 21st century.
