Representatives from the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) shared cutting edge sustainable development concepts at a recent event hosted by WCTA.  RMI, a leading research and education non-profit, centered their discussion around efficient technologies and solutions.

Some highlighted innovations from their presentation included

  • Wireless electric vehicle charging stations—Nissan and other automakers aim for rolling it out in 2014.
  • IT-based transportation (e.g. driverless cars) in order to streamline traffic flows, increasing fuel efficiency and road safety.
  • Distribution of renewable generators for a customer-centric electricity system.
