The top 5000 global energy
officials convene next month in Korea at the World Energy Congress (WEC) —
Energy Ministers, utility executives and global engineering firms. The WEC
meets every three years and GENI has been exhibiting since the early 90's, advocating
the interconnection of renewable energy between all nations as the premier energy
strategy. This year GENI is the only voice on the exhibit floor
pushing this message!
At www.geni.org you can get all the WEC 2013 details: Program,
Speakers, Exhibitor list — plus our "Open Letter to all WEC delegates."
We pre-promote our work to attendees to foster the debate among the delegates.
It is still an uphill climb.
The WEC agenda is "Securing
Tomorrow's Energy Today" which is what the GENI Initiative supports. Yet
the reality of the world and most WEC members is the continued extraction and
use of fossil fuels for power and transportation fuels.
Globally the energy industry has invested trillions into power infrastructure and fuel supply
chains — and this momentum is difficult to change. Imagine the challenge of
Gazprom (Russia), Qatar Petroleum and Pemex (Mexico) shifting their business model to clean energy resources?
The stakes have never been greater. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change released their updated report today – stating 'unequivocally that
humans and fossil fuels are behind the severe storms and droughts we are seeing
around the world.' If we don’t change course we will all suffer "dire consequences."
We invite you to support our Exhibit (Booth #B450). Our goal is $10,000 to cover the fee.
