Mission Statement

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 decades ago.

Description

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.

Current Projects:

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.

Would you recommend Global Energy Network Institute?

I'd love to volunteer but I didn't because of location. I should have checked it before applying.

I was volunteer at GENI during the summer 2010 where i realized a very interesting report on renewable energies potential of Brazil which has now a really good position in Google Pagerank. The internship was also a great human adventure knowing that i met interns from many different countries during this summer. I recommand GENI for anyone who wants to be useful for a non for profit organization focused on sustainable development or/and to work on a research project in a friendly environment.

Volunteering at GENI has been very educational for me. I have learned how to use some aspects of Dreamweaver, and most important I enjoy the positive atmosphere and the friendliness of everybody at the office. The Intern Coordinator, Patricia Stevens, takes great care to see that I am working on projects that farther my education relating to all aspects of environmental issues. I am unemployed and want to understand more about environmental solutions around the globe and in the future hope to find an occupation that is related to this subject.

I've been volunteering with GENI for a few months, and it's been wonderful. They've been very friendly and personable - they make you feel really appreciated and that you are making a real contribution. What I've most liked is how easy it was to get started helping out, and their willingness to accommodate my weird hours. I've been able to volunteer remotely, according to my own schedule, which is really convenient.

The thing I enjoyed most from volunteering in GENI is that they help me to connect my interests, skills and backgrounds with its projects and mission, turning this volunteer experience into an enjoyable learning process. And everyone here is very friendly and more than willing to help and share their knowledge with me, which is another big plus.
