Guest Biography

Joel Garbon serves as President of the nonprofit The New Energy Movement, which educates about breakthrough energy technologies and their implications for human society and our imperiled planet, while also serving as an advocate organization for inventors of these technologies. He is a founding member of New Energy Congress, a forum of technical professionals who investigate new energy technologies.

Garbon is the author of an historic legislative draft titled Energy Innovation Act of 2007 which serves as a template for new energy legislation on the federal, state, local, and international levels.  The legislation’s provisions call for urgent and serious public support for research and development of breakthrough energy technologies, and was presented to senators and representatives in the United States Congress.

Garbon received a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Science from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. He has worked for more than 30 years as an international industrial science consultant and educator within the chemical, pulp and paper, and water treatment industries. He is the inventor and developer of several successful commercial technologies used within these industries.

Garbon is co-author with investigative journalist Jeane Manning of the award-winning book BREAKTHROUGH POWER: How Quantum-Leap New Energy Inventions Can Transform Our World which chronicles the challenges, opportunities, and progress in the new energy technology field. The authors make the appeal for a “tidal wave of wisdom” and the concurrent evolution of energy technology and human consciousness as foundations for a new era on planet Earth.
