Smart Garage Charrette Report

By Michael BrylawskiAmory Lovins

Bringing electrified vehicles, advanced net-zero buildings, and a smart renewable grid together in innovative ways to provide clean, cheap, and secure mobility and electricity: that is the vision of Smart Garage. But how to get there? RMI convened 80 individuals from 25 companies, universities, non-profits, and national labs who are all affected by the transition to Smart Garage in a “charrette,” or intensive interdisciplinary design workshop. The charrette focused on identifying and busting the most important barriers to successful Smart Garage implementation. This document details the process of the charrette and the conclusions of the group.
