Transforming Energy is a documentary about the hope of
Alternative Energy as a solution to the problems of Global Warming and the end
of cheap oil and gas. It takes us into the lives, the passion, the commitment
and the hard work of the people who are on the ground now, working to create a
new energy paradigm.
From political activist Matt Baker of Environment Colorado to Dan Shugar,
president of the largest solar panel company in the world - to the student
engineers racing their own designed solar cars - to a family living off the grid
in rural Iowa.
These stories take on an added significance as the film also goes to Alaska
to document the experiences of Native Alaskans who must evacuate their village
near the Bering Sea because of the effects of Global Warming.
The film features interviews with Hunter Lovins, William McDonough, Jeremy
Rifkin and James Howard Kuntsler who provide inventive new ideas in the debate
about the possible solutions to the challenges we now face.
