Swift Global Results participates in many worldwide affiliations for sustainable, clean energy advancement. The organizations represented here are those where Judd Swift and Wendy Beach have been the most active in recent times. The logos have links to their websites as they are valuable resources and the leaders of these organizations are good references for Swift Global Results.

Judd Swift and Wendy Beach are regular attendees at the annual Global Syngas Technology Conferences. In 2018, Judd presented on the Modularization of future plants and existing plant upgrades.
The GSTC promotes the uses of syngas in the economy. It encourages the use of economically competitive and environmentally conscious technologies to produce fuels, chemicals, fertilizers, substitute natural gas, hydrogen and electricity from a variety of feedstocks. GSTC facilitates relationships among technology, equipment and service providers, and plant owners and operators.
Swift Global Results works closley with the International Energy Association in London, https://www.iea.org/
We highly value our relationship with with Dr. Andrew Minchener, OBE who is the General Manager of the Clean Coal Centre's activities, with special emphasis on maintaining a strong international profile for all aspects of clean coal utilization, with a focus on outreach to developing and industrializing countries.
Swift Global Results actively serves the UNECE on the "Committee on Sustainable Energy" and as a member of "The Group of Experts on Cleaner Electricity Systems." We are also an active member of the "Group of Experts on Natural Gas," where we are currently examining the role of Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) for transportation in Eurasia.
The UNECE's 56 member States in Europe, North America, and Asia look to the U.S. while determining their own future sourcing and use of fossil fuels, creating various opportunities in foreign markets. The UNECE promotes international policy dialogue and cooperation among governments, energy industries, and other stakeholders.
Swift Global Results interfaces with the 70 international professional organizations and other non-governmental organizations that take part in UNECE activities. We have been working with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), in Geneva, to promote U.S. clean energy technologies and the development of alternative products from fossil resources. We support topics such as Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS), Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) and the Paris Accord, regarding climate change.
The UNECE's work on sustainable energy is designed to improve access to affordable and clean energy; reduce emissions; and "eliminate" the carbon footprint of the energy sector. The focus is on energy efficiency, energy security, renewable energy, cleaner electricity production from fossil fuels, coal mine methane, natural gas, and the classification of energy and mineral reserves and resources.

The National Coal Council (NCC) is a non-profit advisory group to the Secretary of Energy, which provides the Secretary with a well-balanced perspective on critical energy issues. Judd Swift's first annual appointment was in 2018, by Energy Secretary Rick Perry. Judd has been reappointed each year. In 2019 Judd was invited to the NCC Chairs Leadership Council which works with NCC leadership in advancing the strategic agenda and objectives of the NCC. Judd is also a member of the NCC Coal Policy Committee and the NCC Executive Committee and the Finance Committee to help provide strategic direction and focus on governance. Judd and Wendy participate each year in the development of the NCC annual studies as requested by the U.S. Secretary of Energy. Swift Global Results supports the advancement of coal to carbon products markets through the development of the 2021 NCC report requested by Secretary Brouillette. This report is available on the NCC website.
Judd Swift and Wendy Beach are proud to have had the honor of working closely with the legendary Barry Worthington, founder and past Executive Director of the United States Energy Association (USEA). Barry passed in 2020 and we and the industry will be forever be grateful to his unmatched contributions.
Swift Global Results continues to carry the torch in support of the United States fossil fuel markets, related US clean energy technologies, policies and alternative products from fossil resources, especially coal. As members of the UNECE, we work alongside the USEA to attempt to shift international attitudes toward clean technology and act as a liaison between the industry, environmentalists, and governments in areas related to fossil energy.
