The Business Case
for Full Scale
Facility (Phase V)
For 20 years, GENI has advocated the premier solution from the World Game™ simulation of Buckminster Fuller -- the interconnection of electric grids between nations with an emphasis on tapping abundant renewable energy resources -- i.e. to provide clean energy for all. We've earned the endorsement of 7 Nobel Peace Laureates, been featured at the World Energy Congress and covers of many industry magazines. [see www.geni.org ]
Yet with all the current awareness on clean energy and the green economy, wind/solar/geothermal supply just 9.3% of global electricity, but has the potential to power 100% of our needs. We see the need to accelerate the process. There are also numerous other issues: water shortages, disease migration, fishery loss, population growth ...
We have now developed Bucky Fuller's proposed World Resources Simulation Center -- an immersive visualization facility where leaders get educated and gain insights, see trends and scenarios of future options, and can then make more sustainable choices and act on them quicker.

In 2009 we hosted a Prototype Event, have 40 partners and institutions on the team, and in September 2010 we worked with the New School of Architecture and Design to host a month-long collaborative on “Energy & Water in Southern California: Moving to Sustainability.
From 2011 to 2016 the SIMCenter opened in downtown San Diego in a 4000 ft. remodeled bank space. We hosted hundreds of international students who were pursuing careers in renewables, sustainability, GIS and future modeling.
Weekly events with subject matter experts helped us define problems and propose solutions to businesses, policy-makers and citizens.
It’s about visualizing sustainability in multiple fields – and then accelerating action in that direction. Here's a presentation about a few of the trends that effect us all...
Our next step is to help universities, cities and institutions create their own SIMCenter. Every world region is experiencing challenges around energy use, transportation congestion, too much/too little water, increased fire danger, housing affordability, economic inequality, species loss, plastics pollution, sea level rise – yet every region is unique by geography and demographics.
These issues cannot be solved in silos. The SIMCenter enables you to surround your team in all the issues, visualize past trends and future options, and make smarter decisions quicker. . . . because we are running out of time.
