WEBINAR: Nature-Positive Solutions for Climate Resilience

Tuesday, April 4, 2023, 1:00 p.m. GMT | 9:00am ET (Virtual)

Register Here

Join multiple RMI experts at this webinar on naturepositive solutions, co-hosted with Climate LinkUP, a UK-Norwegian climate science foundation. This event, designed by and for early-career professionals, will bring together 10 emerging leaders who are developing innovative environmental resilience solutions to mitigate the impacts of climate change. RMI’s Zach Clayton will co-host the webinar and RMI experts Jacob Korn, Paula Valencia, and Suzy Schadel will discuss the value of urban nature in cities, nature-based solutions for the Philippines, and water reuse in California, respectively. 

WEBINAR: Unlock $6.3 Billion in DOE Funding: Best Practices for Industrial Facility Demonstration Applications

Monday, April 10, 2:00 p.m. ET (Virtual)

Register Here

Navigating the $6.3 billion opportunity from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Industrial Facility Demonstrations Program will require careful stakeholder coordination and planning to unlock the fund’s full potential. By taking a whole-project-lifecycle approach, this event brings together heavy industry, engineering companies and low-carbon solution providers like startups to encourage participants to collaborate and apply for this funding opportunity. Experts from DOE and RMI will lead the session to demystify the application through project execution processes. 

AEI Conference: Benchmarking Embodied Carbon in New Homes

Friday, April 14, 8:30-9:00 a.m. MT (In-person, $)

Register Here

Join Chris Magwood, one of RMI’s embodied carbon experts, at AEI Conference 2023 where he will discuss a new RMI report. The paper proposes a common methodology for assessing up-front embodied carbon and reviews some of the outstanding questions and issues in the field, including data accuracy, scope, and carbon-storage. 

Embodied carbon in new homes can represent between 8-125 years’ worth of operational carbon emissions. As homes get more energy efficient and sources of energy decarbonize, this significant piece of the carbon footprint of new homes will be the majority of emissions by 2030 and likely still a majority by 2050. This paper summarizes the results of four different studies of up-front embodied carbon that together have modeled over 750 new homes in Canada. 

Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) 2023

Wednesday-Friday, April 26-28, 2023 (In-person, $)

Register Here

The focus on the energy transition in the Caribbean has sharpened. Global geopolitical tensions, the pressure to decarbonize, and the critical need for energy independence have thrust clean energy to the top of the regional agenda. The time for talk and targets has passed. How do we translate this new urgency into progress and projects?

Join RMI and 450+ policymakers, utilities, developers, writers, financiers, and investors from across energy, climate, finance, technology, and industry at CREF 2023 for the Caribbean energy event of the year.

WEBINAR: Tackling Methane in the Oil and Gas Sector with the Oil Climate Index plus Gas (OCI+) Tool

Wednesday, May 3, 11:00 a.m. MT (Virtual)

Register Here

Methane is a powerful climate pollutant that heats our planet over 80 times more than carbon dioxide. The oil and gas sector is responsible for an estimated one-third of global methane emissions, therefore representing a significant near-term opportunity to reduce emissions and slow global temperature rise. RMI’s cutting-edge interactive tool — the OCI+ — reveals the size, scope, and nature of the methane problem. Notably, new OCI+ analysis reveals that methane drives one-half of oil and gas industry greenhouse gas emissions. Join RMI’s oil and gas sector emissions experts on Wednesday, May 3rd, at 11 a.m. MT for a deep dive on recent OCI+ findings, how to use the OCI+ web tool, and how the tool can inform oil and gas decision-making. With insights from and moderated by RMI’s Deborah Gordon.

Getting to Zero Forum

Wednesday-Friday, May 10–12, 2023 CT (In-person, $)

Register Here

The Getting to Zero Forum is the premier event dedicated to building decarbonization. It is cohosted by RMI and New Buildings Institute. Join us in Minneapolis or virtually from May 10–12, 2023.  

Getting to Zero amplifies the work of people and organizations that are accelerating and broadening efforts to deliver zero energy and zero carbon buildings at scale, and helping policymakers achieve ambitious climate commitments related to the built environment. Efforts cover both residential and commercial sectors for new and existing buildings and engages leading policy makers, designers, building owners, systems manufacturers, and commercial real estate professionals to overcome the remaining barriers to make net zero buildings the norm.
