REIL is a small, informal, below-the-radar network of international climate change and clean energy experts.  Its members represent the spectrum of actors: policymakers, private investors, technology developers, academics and others working to increase the deployment of cleaner, more efficient energy solutions.  REIL acts as a catalyst.  Its focus is on crossing silos, developing systems-oriented solutions, and bringing blue sky thinking to practical on the ground strategies.  Its members see REIL as a platform for exchanging ideas, often “edge” ideas or “cloud thinking”.  REIL members convene regularly, with an annual roundtable held at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies – one of its founding partners.
