"Switch," a Documentary About the Future of Energy

Preceded by Corvallis and OSU sustainability info fair, and followed by an energy experts Q&A panel

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

 

Doors open at 5:30PM for a Corvallis and OSU sustainability info fair, and the documentary Switch will begin at 6:30PM (see below for a description). After the film, an panel of energy experts will answer questions related to the film and the future of energy.

Every energy resource — fossil, nuclear and renewable — is undergoing profound changes. And overall, we're gradually shifting from coal and oil to the energies of tomorrow.

This sweeping transition is the subject of Switch. But rather than advocate for how it should happen, Switch travels the world to discover how it most likely will happen.

Switch is also about a changing energy conversation. Today, it’s polarized and unproductive. Switch focuses on practical realities and encourages a balanced understanding.

Finally, Switch is about changing the way we use energy, to realize the many economic and environmental benefits of efficiency.
