Francis C. W. Fung
Chief Executive Officer Education: BS Aeronautical Engineering, Brown University; MS Fluid Mechanics, Johns Hopkins University; Ph.D. Aerospace Engineering, University of Notre Dame. Dr. Fung holds numerous provisional patent applications on electricity generation and solar thermal concentrator inventions that can revolutionize the solar thermal industry. During the energy crisis of the 1970s, Dr. Fung was active in energy commercialization projects with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Chinese government, ranging from waste heat recovery, Stirling engine, solar power, and district heating. His articles were a regular feature in the U.S. journal Energy User News.
As CEO of Genei Inc., a technology licensing start up, Francis Fung oversees R&D on innovative, highest efficiency, lowest cost and ease-of-assembly solar concentrator dishes for all solar thermal energy applications. These include solar Stirling engine, solar trough and high temperature triple-junction photovoltaic applications. For the first time, the industry can take advantage of Genei‟s load-bearing, glassless mirror elements, which do not require costly and heavy supporting super-structures.
Through his research, dedicated industry focus and high-level connections developed over a lifetime of scientific endeavors, and career as Harmony Renaissance Platform with the United Nations, he pursues his dream of green energy harmony.
Dr. Fung is a leading scholar and was an early publisher on Stirling engines some 20 years ago. In his first month US Secretary of Energy, Dr. Chu answered Dr. Fung‟s email within five days. His first paper on Magneto-Hydrodynamics was published by "Physics of Fluids" at the age of 20. Dr. Fung is responsible for the transfer of Stirling engine technology to China. His milestone publications include, "A Plan to Achieve National Energy Independence," November, 1979; "The Promising Future of Stirling Engines in China," July, 1984; "China‟s Harmony Renaissance: What the World Must Know," November, 2006; "Harmony Diplomacy: Golden Rule of Global Governance," December, 2007; "Harmony Renaissance Preamble and Declaration," the keynote speech at United Nations Staff Day, April 25, 2008; "Stirling Engine Alliance Grand Strategy," national energy independence proposal submitted to the Ministry of Energy, China, August, 2008.
Dr. Fung is a major asset and resource person to any organization involved in solar or renewable energy undertakings. He brings with him years of experience and diverse discipline expertise to innovate, monitor and evaluate new technology in the renewable energy revolution.21
Senior Advisor AIA - Architectural Physicist - Material Scientist Executive Director of BioPhysics Research Foundation (NFP) Founder of Orava Applied Technologies, Currently Senior Adviser of GENEI, Inc. Beginning with his paper, "Physics of Consciousness" in 1963, John Orava has pursued a multi-disciplinary path for solving difficult problems relating to medical, advanced materials, manufacturing processes, equipment, construction and energy. Past projects include start-up companies, creation of industry models such as "Super House" which was the subject of NBC Television special in 1979, creation of a new medical field now known as "rTMPS" or Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Pulse Stimulation, and creation of new, disaster-resistant, construction materials and methods involving nano-ceramic replacements for 90% of all building materials. Consulting clients included Fortune 100 companies, defense contractors, and the Pentagon. Current efforts focus upon solar energy concentration and utilization devices and methods. 22
