Energy Management and
Climate Change

We’ll help you make changes for the better.


From the big picture of energy consumption and climate change, LMI helps local, state and national governments develop and implement policies for conserving water, limiting greenhouse gas emissions, using renewable sources of energy, preventing pollution, and reducing use of toxic and hazardous chemicals and materials. We also help government organizations build sustainable procurements and supply chains, incorporating sustainable practices into new construction and renovation projects and extending the useful life of information technology and other assets.

LMI’s goal is to bring more responsible practices into every aspect of how our clients acquire, distribute, maintain, and retire their assets through the following:

  • Legislative and regulatory analysis
  • Policy and standards development
  • Facility energy usage audits
  • Impact analysis
  • Studies of alternative fuels (hydrogen, biofuels, geothermal)
  • Strategic planning
  • Mitigation and adaptation strategies
  • Data management and analysis
  • Climate change training.

Exploring Frontiers and Sharing What We Learn

Our work often puts us on the leading edge of research and analysis for emerging issues. We look deep to find the answers to questions that may not ever have been asked. And we share our knowledge, to further advances across government.

For example, one of our energy experts, Stu Funk, recently participated in a panel discussion on fuel cells sponsored by Ballard Power Systems. Among the findings he discusses based on work done for the DoD is the importance of “tempo” to getting the full benefits of fuel cell technologies in a warehouse setting.

Supporting Public-Sector Climate Change Strategy

LMI has developed the Climate Change Knowledge Engine® (LMI-CliCKE), an innovative web-based platform that allows users to access reliable expert knowledge about the challenges brought on by climate change that national and state leaders are facing.

LMI-CliCKE presents nearly 3,000 existing, peer-reviewed findings from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), established by the leading global bodies for the assessment of climate change, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). LMI-CliCKE organizes these findings in a way that is both accessible and informative, enabling public-sector managers and the climate change community to easily access what is known (and not known) about specific aspects of climate change and associated uncertainty.
