The GENI-us Letter
Interns Change the World
Dear GENI Friend,
GENI is always looking for ways to leverage our time, staff and money
to make the biggest positive impact on our planet. One of our best resources
has come from interns who come to GENI from around the world to work for
2 - 6 months. After assessing their skills, goals, and desires, we identify
projects for them to pursue in several possible areas: international marketing,
research and writing, web site development, special projects and administration.
GENI has several incredibly bright students right now, and we'd like
to highlight a few of their projects:
- Bruno Cosso identified
the leading members of the E-8 (the 8 largest utilities in the world)
and prepared a package to send those executives prior to the World Energy
- Eleanore Queneudec studied
the Renewable Energy Potential of India, wrote an Executive Summary
and helped market that report to decision-makers throughout India.
- Alberic Davet expanded
our Endorsement Campaign by inviting the Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential
People to consider endorsing the GENI Initiative. (See attached letter)
- Leslie Hunter is researching
the resurgence of nuclear power in the Middle East and investigating
how solar energy could meet all that new electricity demand without
nuclear waste or proliferation issues.
- Sascha Garzke is conducting
market comparisons of the KLD Global Climate 100 Index, offering finer
distinctions on the benefits of this new climate investment option.
- Freya Reynolds is studying
the environmental positions of the major world religions and how the
climate change issue might involve them more in the GENI strategy.
There are many more, and
this work can be seen throughout the GENI web site.
This represents a few of the important projects in which GENI interns
are involved. We've found that bright students perform high quality work
when you give them a big enough reason. We have new interns starting this
summer, so if you have specific ideas that might make a good project for
research or marketing, send me a note. We are fortunate to have so many
top tier students who are committed to making a difference for all of
In partnership for the planet,
p.s. If you know a person who would like to intern with GENI, send us
p.p.s. Please consider renewing your GENI
pledge. It will make a real difference in our work.
