Rocky Mountain Institute is a leading technical think tank on energy and transportation issues globally. With this support, the Institute will develop and implement an all-new mobility paradigm in a major U.S. city. The Institute will select the city and work with the required agencies and departments. The paradigm shift is transitioning away from a transportation system based on fossil-fueled personal vehicles to a mobility system that delivers a variety of shared, electrified, and automated mobility options. The main outcome will be the roadmap, policies and actions, for the implementation of this vision in the selected city. The results will be shared to other cities around the world through a global engagement platform.

for promoting climate equity through a just rural transition
RMI works to promote carbon neutrality in China’s rural development. Given China’s mandate to promote inclusive development for all, and the government’s Rural Revitalization centerpiece role, this project aims to incorporate low-carbon development into China’s rural development, in order to optimize opportunities to achieve the dual goals. RMI will establish a close working relationship with key decision-making ministries, develop a roadmap for rural carbon neutrality, tackle climate equity issues, demonstrate breakthrough technologies and innovative mechanisms at typical rural pilots, and mobilize key market players to mobilize private capital. In addition, RMI also plans to facilitate the effective scaling through a public report release and communications campaign. (Substrategy: China National Policy)
for the China program, India program, and Center for Climate-Aligned Finance
The Rocky Mountain Institute’s mission is to promote a transformation to a clean and prosperous low-carbon economy. This program grant will support its work on advancing clean energy in India and China, as well as establish its new Center for Climate-Aligned Finance. In India and China, the institute is well established and works in partnership with national and sub-national governments to advance clean power and electric mobility. This part of the work advances our substrategy in Electrification. The Center for Climate-Aligned Finance supports our Climate Finance substrategy.
