Peter Meisen is President of the Global Energy Network Institute (GENI), conducting research and education on the interconnection of electric networks between nations with an emphasis on tapping abundant renewable energy resources around the world. The GENI Initiative has earned the endorsement of 7 Nobel Peace Laureates. The strategy to "link renewables" is now embraced in such projects as: Connect the Americas 2022, East Africa Power Interconnection from Cairo to Capetown and the ASEAN Energy Plan.
