Ask a simple question where are all the renewable energy resource
maps of the world? Thus began an in-depth research project for Kerstin
Damerau, our geography intern from Germany. If we are going to deal with
climate change, it's critical to know where your renewable energy is
We are proud to announce that GENI now has the largest collection
of Renewable Energy
Resource Maps on the web. These maps are categorized by resource:
solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, ocean and biomass for each world region.
There is a corresponding set of recent articles that give credence to
the growing renewable sector on every continent. Taken together, these
Renewable Resource Maps clearly show abundant clean energy potential exists
on every continent if we choose that path.
For years, GENI has featured the idea that cross-border power networks
are a force for peace between nations. Retired newsman Walter
Cronkite offered his powerful endorsement, stating:
"The GENI Initiative offers the most thoughtful
toward peace and sustainable development that I have seen."
Here is another credible article entitled: "Global
electric 'power highways' could become a force for peace,"
as published in the on-line magazine Power
Engineer (engineerlive.com). Interconnected systems that trade electrical
energy are mutually beneficial to both buyer and seller.
Neighbor helping neighbor is how we like to live in our communities.
Energy interdependency between nations is a political and economic form
of neighbor helping neighbor that fosters trade, cooperation
and peace. The GENI Initiative is being embraced around the world. Now
the challenge is to accelerate the process so that renewable energy becomes
the dominant energy resource for our world.
