Apply now: Rocky Mountain Institute’s eLab Accelerator | April 24-27

Know an innovative project at the forefront of electricity transformation? Consider applying for Rocky Mountain Institute’s eLab Accelerator April 24-27 — an invitation-only bootcamp for electricity innovation.

In April 2016, the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) will convene their third Electricity Innovation Lab (eLab) Accelerator event. This four-day working meeting brings together teams throughout North America that are working on high impact and innovative projects at the electricity system’s distribution edge. The purpose of the workshop is to take these projects to the next level through structured sessions designed to rapidly accelerate progress. This is accomplished by immersing participating teams in eLab’s collaborative approaches and subject-matter expertise that has a proven track record of delivering transformative change in the electricity sector.


Accelerator teams comprise 4–6 people representing multiple project stakeholders and partners. Successful teams bring together the right combination of vision, experience, knowledge, and commitment to a project that can accelerate change on the electricity system. A team’s project must be actively under development, although it may range from an idea just being nucleated to a project well under way.

More information about eLab Accelerator projects and teams is available on the Teams page.

This event is by invitation-only, and applications are being accepted now.  Completed applications are due to RMI by January 4, 2016. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis; early submissions are highly encouraged. All project selections will be made by February 15, 2016.  Apply today.

“Internet of Things” is a handy way to refer to the growing world of connected devices that can monitor and respond to events without humans lifting a finger.  While these devices are becoming prevalent in every aspect of our modern world, building systems have been a primary frontier for deployment and are already impacting energy consumption and patterns.  Not only is this a shift in operations best practice, but it is also a major new market opportunity.

Join us to learn about trends in the Building Internet of Things, and to hear about cutting-edge research and new business activity happening right here in Pittsburgh.
