Topic: “Visualizing sustainable solutions to solve problems quicker"
How do we
provide a decent quality of life for all in an environmentally sustainable
renewable energy resources around the world remains our highest global
priority. i.e. using high-voltage transmission between regions and nations
to tap abundant and remote renewable capacity
trends are outpacing our ability to solve them (Scientists 2nd Warning to
Humanity, 2017) We seem to be smarter lemmings still headed for the cliff
engineers, scientists and policy-makers solve them? What’s missing?
sustainable solutions to global and local problems so we make informed
control rooms for space, war and business – why not for sustainable
Mr. Peter Meisen of Global Energy
Peter Meisen is a 1975 graduate of UCSD
in Applied Mechanics and Engineering Sciences.Drawing inspiration from renowned inventor and futurist Buckminster
Fuller, he founded the Global Energy Network Institute (GENI) in 1990, a
non-profit research and educational institute designed to explore global
solutions for peace and sustainable development.GENI’s goal is to establish an interconnected
electric grid that links the regional power systems to renewable energy
resources on every continent.Former CBS
News anchor Walter Cronkite called the idea “the most thoughtful strategy for
peace and sustainable development” that he had ever seen.The GENI Initiative has earned the
endorsement of seven Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, with Peter presenting his
plan at seven World Energy Conferences.
To spur investment into green energy
development, Peter helped launch the Global Climate 100 Index, designed for
investors seeking climate change solutions.Index companies provide leadership in the areas of renewable energies,
future fuels and clean/efficient technology. In 2011, Peter expanded this work
by launching the World Resources Simulation Center (SIMCenter) to visualize
sustainable solutions to global and local problems so that society makes more
informed choices quicker.Some of his
professional memberships include: UCSD Alumni Association, the IEEE Power
Engineering Society, World Affairs Council of San Diego, Global San Diego,
Union of Concerned Scientists.Peter was
born in Oceanside and he and his wife Ashley reside in San Diego.
