One World. One Energy. One Per Cent.
The interconnection of the world’s emerging mega-renewable projects could form a planetary energy grid to provide a permanent supply of abundant clean energy to end hunger, poverty, pollution and war.

GREEN stands for the “Global Renewable Energy Electricity Network”GREEN is a global grid linking together the world’s abundant sources of renewable energy, delivering clean energy to every country on the planet.
- GREEN addresses climate change, poverty and sustainability.
- GREEN costs 1% of global GDP per year and will take 20 years to complete.
- GREEN is spending better not more: we already spend more on polluting and finite conventional energy and subsidies.
- GREEN is co-operative and equitable: each country pays for and receives energy in direct proportion to its needs.
- GREEN is already happening: DESERTEC in EU-MENA. The Repower Initiative in the U.S. GCCIA in the Middle East.
- GREEN’s network is already 75% complete: existing national grids only need to be linked together by long distance transmission lines.
- GREEN will be public commons: paid for, constructed and managed by an independent supervisory body; funded by individual tax contribution delivered by national governments.
- GREEN’s vision: “One World. One Energy. One Per Cent.” A renewable energy network for the entire planet. Paid for equitably by all. Used by and shared between the entire global population.
