A Wish From GENI

Dear E-8 Leader,

The upcoming World Energy Congress theme is "The Energy Future in an Interdependent World."

We are all interconnected today -- linked across borders via gas pipelines, electric grids, telecommunication cable and global finance.

The new international factor facing our industry is carbon. Power production and the transport sector create two-thirds of global CO2 emissions, and the public is becoming vocal in their demand for cleaner energy and fuels. It seems certain that a 'market price per ton of carbon' will soon be enacted and will dramatically alter the cost equation for fossil fuels.

As a member of the E-8, you are a global leader in how we produce electricity. The rules of the game are changing. In preparation for the 20th WEC in Rome this November, GENI would like to pose several questions for consideration by you and your staff:

  1. Renewable Potential: What's the potential capacity of all the renewable resources in your service territory, including your neighbors? Could you meet most of your electrical requirements from these non-carbon resources? (Five nations already do: Norway, Iceland, Brazil, Canada and New Zealand.)

  2. Interconnection: How could these renewables be integrated into your electric grid and provide the reliability, security and immediate dispatch that your customers require?

  3. Fossil Fuel Transition: As existing fossil fuel and nuclear plants need replacing in the coming years, could renewables meet that replacement capacity using the same criteria?

  4. Design: In the coming carbon constrained world of the future, how would you strategically plan, engineer and build this out?

You'll see from the enclosed material -- the GENI Initiative advocates the interconnection of renewable energy resources around the world as a priority objective. It's about cooperation between renewable developers, utilities and neighboring nations.

We look forward to seeing you in Rome. GENI will be in the Renewables Exhibit area.

In partnership

Peter Meisen
