Global Energy Network Institute (GENI) fosters peace and sustainable development between countries. The GENI initiative advocates the interconnection of the electrical networks between countries, with an emphasis on tapping the renewable energy resources of each region. The awareness generated by the GENI initiative has fostered cooperative development projects between formerly hostile nations, including Israel and Jordan, India and Pakistan, and Russia and China. The benefits of this cooperation are increased trade, economic development, and political cooperation.
GENI is in development on the World Resources Simulation Center (WRSC).
To help drive investment to clean energy solutions, in 2005, GENI partnered with KLD Research and Analytics to create an Index that would allow investors to put their money into green/cleantech companies. The FTSE KLD Global Climate 100 Index, tracks the leading global public companies that seek climate change solutions in three areas: renewable energy, clean tech and energy efficiency and future fuels.
Recognizing the need in developing countries to accelerate access to clean energy solutions, The Village Projects Website is being designed and implemented to be a 'clearinghouse' for information on current projects in the poorest countries in the world engaged in rural electrification, poverty alleviation and social entrepreneurism with a particular emphasizes on energy efficiency and clean electricity. This website will shine a light on the successes and assist other villages adopt what is being modeled and is working elsewhere.
Mission: GENI's mission is to conduct research and to educate world leaders and the public about the critical viability of the interconnection of electric power networks between nations and continents, with an emphasis on tapping abundant renewable energy resources, what we call 'the GENI Initiative.' Our research shows that linking renewables between all nations will mollify conflicts, grow economies and increase the quality of life and health for all. This is a strategy rooted in the highest priority of the World Game simulation developed by Dr. Buckminster Fuller three decade ago.
