The GOBI Energy Transformation Project is Chicago-based public charity (under IRS Tax Code 501(c)(3)) operated by a fun-loving team of passionate individuals dedicated to educating the community on sustainability and transforming the current paradigm of global energy resources.  GOBI was founded in 2010, by Tad Snyder. Most of 2011 was spent fundraising and building SOLARBEATZ.

Mission: To inspire a dramatic and lasting impact on the environmental social responsibility of the community through a high energy, interactive, solar powered spectacle!  We aim to be an inspirational multi-media showcase of the best environmental technology and ideas from around the world and transform the current “doom and gloom” attitude into one of infinite possibilities.  Team GOBI is committed to using FUN in place of FEAR to inspire a change or “awakening” with regard to sustainable and alternative resources.
