CLEER, Clean Energy Economy for the Region, will present Amory Lovins of Rocky Mountain Institute at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 17, at the Thunder River Theater in Carbondale.

Mr. Lovins will speak about RMI’s latest ground-breaking work, “Reinventing Fire: Bold Business Solutions for the New Energy Era.” Reinventing Fire maps pathways for running a 2050 U.S. economy 158 percent bigger than today’s but with no oil, no coal, no nuclear energy, and dramatically lower costs. Researchers at RMI spent much of 2010 and 2011 researching what was possible and how, while synthesizing current innovation with RMI’s 30 years of leading-edge research. The result is a grand synthesis that integrates the transportation, buildings, industrial, and electricity sectors, and shows how they can deliver the services society wants without relying on fossil fuels (see for more information). He also will discuss how Colorado can harness the economic opportunities of being at the forefront of this transition.
