Global Energy Interconnection Development and Cooperation Organization (GEIDCO)
is an international organization among willing firms, associations, institutions dedicated to advancing the sustainable development of energy worldwide. The mission of GEIDCO is to promote the establishment of Global Energy Interconnection (GEI) to meet the global power demand with clean and green alternatives, to implement the United Nation "Sustainable Energy for All" and climate change initiatives, and to serve the sustainable development of humanity.
GEI is a clean energy-dominant, electric-centric modern energy system that is globally interconnected, jointly constructed and mutually beneficial to all. It is an important platform for large-scale development, transmission and consumption of clean energy resources worldwide. In the cause of building GEI, the overall plan is to adhere to a path of green, low-carbon and sustainable development, accelerate construction of trans-national and intercontinental backbone grids based on technologies like Ultra-High Voltage (UHV) and smart grid, and form global power channels.
Since establishment, GEIDCO has actively promoted GEI concept, organized to formulate plans on GEI advancement and established technical standard system. It has also conducted joint technical innovation study on key issues and international collaboration, driven the implementation of engineering projects and provided consulting services. More than 100 research projects have been carried out.
GEIDCO has 825 members from 112 countries and regions, including energy and power enterprises, equipment manufacturers, engineering constructers, research institutes, universities, societies, etc. Established cooperative relations with relevant United Nations agencies, international organizations such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), International Energy Agency (IEA) and International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE), and governments, enterprises, institutions and universities, and signed more than 40 cooperation agreements with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), World Meteorological Organization (WMO), IEEE, etc.
GEIDCO has successfully held 30 international conferences including High-level UN Symposium, International Conference on GEI, GEI high level Forums, World Hydropower Congress, and Forums on Energy Interconnection, attracting the attendance from politicians, leaders of international organizations, experts and scholars from more than 100 countries and regions.
