Dear GENI Friend,

Last year, US President George W. Bush spoke of the linking the three US energy grids into a national energy grid. The National Energy Plan continued to expand this plan to include Canada and Mexico, creating a continental electric network. This was the first President to make this pledge.

Now, China's State Power Grid Corporation is working to interconnect their national transmission system by 2005. Presently, the 15 regional grids remain separate, preventing trade between provinces that would benefit each party. The majority of people live near the east coast and abundant energy resources are in the west. With a national grid, China will be able to transport "clean" electricity across hundreds of miles and improve both the stability and reliability of the system.

Ten years ago, GENI delivered this strategy to the Chinese Power Ministry via our exhibit at a Beijing power conference. With Europe fully interconnected, and North America and China following suit, we expect this trend to spread across all continents in the next few years.

It seems there is a race between those who are pursuing the clean energy revolution — and the coal/oil/gas interests who remain in control of the present market. On the side of the former, GENI is constantly looking for partners and leading firms who are driving this effort. We have found a fairly new energy research/education firm that offers an excellent overview of this new economy. It's available to all at www.cleanedge.com. In a world of great uncertainly, we see many rays of hope. Thank you for holding that vision with us.

Please vote with your dollars by investing in the sustainability of our planet.

Peter Meisen

The Global Energy Network Institute focuses on the interconnection of electric power networks between nations and continents, with an emphasis on tapping abundant renewable energy resources. This strategy is the highest priority of the World Game simulation developed by Dr. Buckminster Fuller three decades ago.
