Kailua, HI (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Richelle Kim to the position of President and CEO of Green Energy Live, as of February 2, 2011.
GELV has relocated the company headquarters to Kailua Hawaii. GELV believes there are tremendous opportunities for Green Technology in the state.
The Hawai‘i Clean Energy Initiative is leading the way in relieving our dependence on oil by setting goals and a roadmap to achieve 70% clean energy by 2030 with 30% from efficiency measures, and 40% coming from locally generated renewable sources. Hawai‘i’s clean energy goals are the most aggressive in the nation – and if we succeed, we will become a world leader in clean energy. – HawaiiCleanEnergyInitiative.org
- These goals exceed those of California and Texas, both with 33% goals
- Hawaii is the nation’s leader in per-capita photovoltaic solar energy generation
- Hawaii grows more corn seed for export than any other state in the United States
- Hawaii has the lowest per capita carbon emissions among large cities in developed countries.
- Hawaii is the center of major renewable energy sources including biomass, algae, geo-thermal, hydropower/ocean, wind power, and solar/photovoltaic.
In 2010, Green Energy Live was unable to generate sufficient revenues to cover operational expenses and capitalize on the development of other green technology projects, which negatively impacted its stock price.
The Company was unable to obtain adequate financing to acquire Peck Electric and Electrocell, and, as a result, GELV has elected to withdraw its letters of intent. Green Energy hopes to re-establish negotiations with both companies at a later date when financing becomes available.
The financial circumstances of GELV have resulted in delayed filings of its audited financial statement. The Comanche acquisition has not been completed, and we hope to renegotiate our terms in the future and complete the acquisition.
Green Energy Live is still committed to developing green technology for fuel, farming and waste management. Various projects such as bio fuels, organic fertilizer and a patent pending gasification and heat monitoring process will continue to be part of our business model.
Ms. Kim believes that attention should also be focused on other green technologies that can produce revenues much sooner for the company such as solar, wind and hydro.
“We intend to pursue all projects that will generate revenues for GELV now and delay projects that are in early stage development until we have the resources to complete such projects. Though I commend the efforts by my predecessor, too much time and money has been directed towards projects that are not immediate revenue producing ventures.”
Ms. Kim has reduced operating expenses and is working on completing audited financials, hoping to re-establish Green Energy as a fully reporting company. “We hope by addressing this issue and implementing other new strategies we will improve the price of our stock for our shareholders.”
“We are recommitting ourselves to the mission of Green Energy Live, Inc.” says Ms. Kim.
