is to accelerate the attainment of optimal, ecologically
sustainable energy solutions in the shortest possible
time for the peace, health and prosperity of all.
Energy Network Institute (GENI) is a tax exempt, IRS
Sec 501(c)(3), organization in the United States of
America. We conduct research and educational activities
related to the international and inter-regional transmission
of electricity, with a specific emphasis on the interconnection
of renewable energy resources.
resource usage is currently not possible without interconnections
and high voltage transmission.
to date finds that, using today's technology, the
interconnection of large scale renewable resource
energy is an economic and environmentally sustainable
the decision making processes of the global electricity
industry, there exist three areas of activity that
will accelerate the attainment of optimal energy solutions:
the industry must be convinced that interconnection
of renewable energy sources via high voltage transmission
networks is both a financially viable and highly desirable
global energy option;
the general public and their representative organizations
need to be aware of sustainable global energy options;
our policy makers need to be aware of global, sustainable
energy options when determining their regional policy
direction and legislation.
of GENI have focused on researching the development
of transmission and distribution networks as a viable
option to meet our global energy requirements. Clear
evidence indicates that large scale remote renewable
energy resources can be made available via high-voltage
transmission. Extensive progress has been accomplished.
GENI continues to work with the electricity industry
to explore the implications of interconnections around
identified a hurdle for the industry's wider use of
interconnection of large scale renewable energy resources:
the lack of a suitable, validated computer simulation
model to demonstrate the cost/benefit analysis of
such a scenario, which includes a comparison with
other energy scenarios, for example, those of the
World Energy Council.
the decision making and approval process, we have
initiated a Computer
Simulation Project, enlisting the active support
of the electricity industry and the Society for Computer
Mission Earth project.
our communication with the general public, we have
initiated, in collaboration with Earth Vision Productions,
Film Project suitable for international broadcast
the education of the industry and our policy makers,
we work with other organizations promoting global
sustainable development, are actively involved in
international meetings, and are discussing with several
United Nations departments to co-sponsor an International
Conference on Electrical Interconnections.
