Global Energy Interconnection (GEIDCO)

GEIDCO

The Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO), with its permanent office in Beijing, China, is a non-governmental, non-profit international organisation among willing firms, associations, institutions and individuals who are dedicated to promoting the sustainable development of energy worldwide.

The purpose of GEIDCO is to promote the establishment of a global energy interconnection system (GEI), to meet the global demand for electricity in a clean and green way, to implement the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All and climate change initiatives, and to serve the sustainable development of humanity.

GEIDCO will promote the concept of GEI, formulate GEI development plans, promote the creation of a GEI technical standards framework, organise concerted and collaborative efforts in researches and innovations, key studies, international communication and cooperation, engineering project implementation, provide consulting services, and lead the development of GEI.

The founding of GEIDCO marks the transition of GEI from a concept to strategy implementation. Looking forward, GEI will promote south–south and south–north cooperation, and help transform the resource advantage into economic advantage in regions like Asia, Africa and South America. This will help address power shortages and poverty and narrow regional gaps and differences. Life will be better as the world gradually turns into a bright, peaceful and harmonious global village with sufficient energy, blue sky and green land.
