Global Energy Network Institute Foundation

Mission Statement

"The GENI Foundation initiative involves building 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."

"We are passionate about the GENI Foundation initiative because it has shown us how electricity across time zones underpins every foundational need in any society. From lighting, heating, sanitation, refrigeration, irrigation, industry, transport and "climate-change". It shows us that if we can get electricity to where it is needed most, we automatically solve the major problems being experienced by all of us on planet Earth." - Ruanna Segal (Trustee)

The We R One World Game – 2 November 2019

Book now


Come and join us for a simulation experience you'll never forget

The We-R-One-World simulation experience is based on the work of the late Buckminster Fuller and his World Game.
We have taken it a step further and enhanced the experience where you will have an opportunity to learn and grow and understand the complexities we all face now and in the future. We guarantee that you will never look at the world the same way again.
The We R One World simulation experience is a unique experience where the unfolding of humanities journey past present and future is all laid out on a large scale Dymaxion Map originally created by the late Buckminster Fuller.

The World Game was a simulation exercise intended to answer the following big question:

  • How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?
After playing this World Game literally hundreds of times over many years, on college campuses and in corporate settings, one clear strategy for gaining 'spontaneous cooperation' and winning the game began to emerge.

Date: Saturday 2 November 2019
Time: 9.00am – 5.00pm

Venue: The Bourke and Wills Room, Moonee Ponds Bowling Club, 776 Mt Alexander Rd, Moonee Ponds

Cost: $180 per person (Lunch and Super provided)
*Bookings are essential

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 price of AUD$2599 +GST (per 2kw module).


With Government rebates of up to $2,225* available, Victorians can now combine solar with one of the most modern battery technology on the market today.
*Eligibility criteria apply. Visit the Solar Victoria Solar Homes Program to review your eligibility and to learn more about registering an application, please visit Solar Victoria to Apply for a rebate.

Fund Raising - Clean electricity in all nations

Geni Fund raising

Pledge your support for this initiative using our fund raising platform 'PATREON'.
Our current funding goals include:

Projects & Technology

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.
