Germany faces the biggest structural reform since the beginning of the industrial age. “Power to Change” is the cinematic experience and exploration of this millennium challenge.

This is the story of a quest – a search, in which questions are raised and answers found.
What does the energy turnaround mean for us?
What are the economic, ecological and social implications?
What are the challenges and risks?
What is at stake and at what price?

The film shows the conflict over an energy revolution, which began as a grassroots movement and is being advanced through decentralized, regional players. It draws upon the personal stories of people who have taken the responsibility for their energy supply  and the protection of their natural livelihood into their own hands.

The film shows the daily struggle of activists, entrepreneurs, skeptics and critics in dealing with this energy revolution. The films aims to put an end to the doomsday scenarios and the cynical discussions over the feasibility of the energy revolution. It’s entertaining, exciting and fascinating, without succumbing to moralistic preaching.
