Message from GEA President, Dr. Aram Vardanyan

We are at an important juncture in our long history, with rapid development and deployment of green energy occurring throughout much of the developed and developing world. This historical shift in how society obtains and uses its energy is the result of many factors, including the recognition of the economic value in using clean and indigenous renewable resources, the energy security these resources bring to society, and the significant human health and environmental benefits offered by a shift away from fossil fuels. With an effective web presence and communication strategy, GEA can and will be at the forefront in informing society on the benefits of these technologies, and advising policy makers and project developers alike with credible organizational, technical and scientific information on how global society can transform to a green energy future.
My goals as GEA President are based on our shared vision that GEA is a learned Association with a core membership of highly qualified technical specialists and related professionals, dedicated to educating and informing a much broader membership, in all aspects of green energy.
