This will quantify the economic, environmental, and social benefits of developing remote renewable energy sources and linking them to population centers via long distance electrical transmission lines. It will demonstrate that GENI represents an optimal sustainable energy solution for the world by comparing our projections to those produced by the World Energy Council (WEC) and others.
For the President, Prime Minister, Energy Minister, and Decision-Makers. For people and organizations dealing with: Environmental, Development, Population, and Peace Issues. For business and trade groups in the: Fossil Fuel, Renewables, and Transmission industries. Questions for Financial Decision-Makers too.
This proposal for a one hour documentary film will highlight the genius of Buckminster Fuller and the original critical thinking from the World Game simulation. Linking the power systems between nations and regions will be featured. The viewer will realize a fundamental paradigm shift in thinking, from a belief in energy scarcity to an awareness of abundance.
Why hold another International Conference? Electrical interconnections between countries and regions go far beyond energy transfer. It bears directly on pollution and global warming, the population explosion, environmental degradation, poverty and world hunger, and international trade/global economic prosperity. Interconnections affect the quality of life, as measured by infant mortality, longevity, clean water and literacy. Fundamentally, electrical interconnection between countries and regions has everything to do with world peace and stability.
It is anticipated that as conference delegates examine the benefits of interconnecting electrical grids across political and regional boundaries linking renewable resources, they will collectively spark the political will to accomplish this project. This has been the missing link despite the economic benefits and technological feasibility evident for the past two decades.
