Market transformation begins with reliable research. The Resource Innovation Institute is leveraging its relationships with utilities, public agencies and producers in multiple states to evaluate aggregate yield and utility bill data leading to the establishment of production metrics on energy and water consumption. 

This will enable an organized understanding of the industry and effective design of incentive programs that will drive down the cost of installing efficient technology. Furthermore, this critical research will position producers for a competitive future as product prices go down as expected. 

We are currently recruiting our Technical Advisory Committee, a body of industry stakeholders who will guide the development of market-based standards through a proven consensus-building process.
