We are very excited to announce
a new challenge
grant from the GENI Board of Directors. At our recent meeting, $60,000
was pledged as a match to all new contributions! In other words, your
donation gets doubled. That=
s good for you and great for GENI.
While most capital campaigns
focus on year end, we actually have several major projects that need your
support now. Attached is a short list of our major
- An exhibit at the
World Energy Conference in Sydney, Australia, attended by energy
ministers, engineering firms and utility executives from around the
- The newsletter "Best
Renewable Energy Policies from Around the World" is a 12
page summary of what local, state and national officials can do to encourage
- Production of a one
hour documentary/film, "The Powerful Planet". A television
feature on public broadcasting, CNN or the BBC would reach millions
of people around the world
- Early development of
a renewable energy investment fund. GENI has been researching
the growth of this emerging industry and is working to form an investable
product for institutional and individual investors.
Each year we get together
and ask the simple questions: "What's wanted and needed in the
world?" and "What can GENI do to fulfill this?"
We look for the "trimtab" where GENI can make an impact using
our limited resources and staff.
As an example - the "Best
Renewable Energy Policies" newsletter has just been sent
to all Presidents, Prime Ministers, UN Ambassadors, Energy and Foreign
Ministers from every nation. From this, we expect to see new policy commitments
that support renewable energy from many nations this year.
