“The Future of Energy” is a documentary that captures the movement across the Unites States to transition to renewable energy and what everyday people are doing to help foster that shift. It’s a positive film about the renewable energy revolution, and a love story about the countless individuals and communities that are re-imagining their relationship with the planet and with each other. The film focuses on solutions to climate change and advocates for the use of 100% renewable energy.

The work of 350.org, Green for All, Alliance for Climate Education, and Go100%, along with that of many other organizations, is featured in the film. The documentary highlights the work of influential climate change activists and visionary renewable energy advocates including: Jeremy Rifkin, best selling author of The Third Industrial Revolution and principle architect of the European Union’s renewable energy movement; Bill Mckibben, author and leading environmental activist on climate change; Joanna Macy, author and eco-philosopher; Danny Kennedy, author of Rooftop Revolution and co-founder of Sungevity solar company; Diane Moss, founder of Renewables 100 Policy Institute; Mark Jacobson, Director of Atmosphere and Energy program at Stanford University and co founder of the Solutions Project; and Pandora Thomas, sustainability consultant and environmental educator. In addition, there are also appearances by Billy Parrish, Co Founder of Mosaic, Marco Krapels, co founder of Solutions Project, and many more. The Film also features the Mayors of two U.S. towns that have transitioned to renewables already; The Mayor of Lancaster, California, Rex Parris, who’s transitioned to solar energy, and the Mayor of Greensburg, Kansas, Bob Dixon, who’s transitioned to wind energy.
