About Us


What do you predict will happen to our planet if we do not complete the global electricity grid?

Key Words:

predictions, planet, global electricity grid, environmental trends, societal trends, deforestation, air pollution, water pollution, land pollution, overpopulation, infant mortality, illiteracy, minimum energy use 2000 kWh per person per year, destructive trends


If the world remains as it is — i.e. the status quo many existing environmental and societal trends will continue and worsen the quality of life for everyone.

The most important negative trends include: deforestation, desertification, climate change, pollution (air, water, and land), and overpopulation. As well, high infant mortality and illiteracy rates would persist in unserved areas.

GENI looks to achieve a minimum energy use of 2000 kWh per person per year. Research show that this threshold will minimize the vicious cycle of these trends.
