Mission Statement


"To build awareness and powerful support, in the shortest possible time, for the integration of electrical energy grids around the world into a single interconnected grid that spans the globe*, generating and distributing power from the Earth's naturally abundant renewable resources - an initiative that will improve the quality of life for everyone without damage to the planet."
*Walter Cronkite uses the analogy of "a world wide web of electricity using green energy resources."


Forthcoming Events

meetups

Come and join us on the first Thursday of every month from 6:30PM to 8:00PM.

Exploring practical solutions to global and local problems, to build a world that works for everybody - not just a minority!

* 4th October was very inspiring for solar and battery installations.
Because of this exciting meetup, we can now offer a specail deal on Battery technology.


GENI Foundation Special offer - Battery Storage


zenaji battery

Zenaji Australia

Using Lithium Titanate (LTO) cells, Zenaji’s Aeon Battery is a leap forward in battery storage. Zenaji Aeon batteries offer the most robust, safest, longest life and most cost effective solution available in the world today. The Aeon Battery is designed for use in domestic and commercial solar and stand-alone energy storage installations. We have developed manufacturing processes and a Battery Management System (BMS) which optimizes the Lithium Titanate (LTO) cells, simplifies the battery design and reduces the circuitry required for effective cell management. With a 20,000 cycle life and high maximum continuous charge rate Zenaji Aeon Batteries take full advantage of solar & wind energy. The average home has peak usage in the morning and evening. By cycling twice per day the Aeon Battery allows use of all available solar energy to provide stable power supply throughout the entire day. No other battery on the market has the cycling ability, performance, life span and high safety of Zenaji Aen Batteries, making them a sound economic investment.


Use our promotions code 'GENI-Zenaji' and you can purchase this new Battery Technology from Zenaji Australia at the discounted pre-sale price of AUD$2700 +GST (per 2kw module). This normally retails at AUD$3299 +GST.

*This special offer will end at midnight 23rd December 2018.
What a great Christmas present.

6 Startling Statements on Population vs Electricity:

  1. The foundational difference between rich and poor countries is the availability of electricity
  2. Electricity availability leads to population reduction
  3. The Sun gives the Earth our annual global usage in 1.7hrs
  4. The only safe place for a Nuclear power plant is 93 million miles from the Earth (ie. the Sun) - Buckminster Fuller
  5. What makes us human is freedom of choice – Education enables us to make informed choices about Electricity
  6. Sustainability is only too expensive:
    • if we don’t innovate
    • if we only think short term
    • if we think scarcity not abundance
    • if we continue to ignore our grandchildren's future

Strategy for Australia

1. To help facilitate the linking up Australia's national grid via underwater cable to Papua New Guinea and Indonesia thereby linking more than
250 million people to a potential renewable energy supply. By canvassing industry leaders and educating the general public to the potential of this project.

2. Playing the Global Integration Game (GIG). 120 people have the opportunity to play a fun and interactive game on how the world works on a huge Dymaxion Map.
This game brings up insights in what is being done in the current world, what needs to be done, and what one can do about it. This game can also be played in Schools.

3. Presenting GENI Initiative in schools the 'Spaceship Earth School Presentation'.
90 minute interactive workshop presenting highlights between the Mercator Projection Map and Buckminster Fuller's more accurate Dymaxion Map.
Students are actively involved in exploring the implementation of a global energy grid as a solution to world's most pressing problems by the
interconnection of renewable energy resources.

4. IREC - Independent Renewable Energy Centre
GENI is currently in discussion with organisations interested in developing our project to deploy IREC's (Independent Renewable Energy Centres). This is a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), project where IRECs (like solar energy generators), are installed in 10,000 villages (in Africa, India, East Timor, Haiti or Australia), and financed by 10,000 sponsoring Australian Corporations. One Corporate sponsoring One village at a time.
We also want to encourage the building of small renewable energy centres in remote communities within Australia that are not currently connected to the national grid. This will eventually make it easy for the national grid to be extended because the distances between the new IRECs will progressively get shorter and shorter each time a new one is added.
As the network infrastructure is extended, these remote communities will generate their own revenue by supplying the national grid with renewable energy.



GENI Initiative to extend the Backbone National Grid

The Australian Energy Market Operator(AEMO), has produced some fantastic information which GENI has utilised for this initiative and it starts with the representation of the Australian National Grid as at 2016.
