Why is GENI doing this work?

The GENI Initiative has it's origins from The World Game simulation developed by Dr. R. Buckminster Fuller in 1969. Stated as the opposite of war games, this investigation posed the following question:

How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?

This research identified a premier global strategy – a global electric energy grid tapping abundant renewable energy resources.

What are the reasons that make this important for GENI?

Upon implementation, this initiative provides clean electricity to all people around the world, and the benefits include:

  • Reduced of pollution from fossil and nuclear fuels
  • Reduced hunger and poverty
  • Stabilized population growth
  • Increased trade, cooperation and peace between nations
  • Increased universal living standards
  • Making energy available to others
  • Decreased customer costs
  • Fewer interruptions (better service) due to redundant supply paths
  • Savings in electricity generation costs
  • A reduction of costs required to install new power generating plants to meet increased demand
  • An extension of the life of finite non-renewable energy resources
  • Conservation of non-renewable resources for future generations

If you ask the GENI staff why we do this work -- the answer usually includes a desire to make the world a better place for all. We want to make a difference, and the GENI Initiative is our trimtab to get this result.
