background Energy


The most moving films about renewable energies, the energy revolution, nuclear power and fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas.

Energy is one of the most central topics in the field of sustainability. Global energy consumption has risen sharply in recent decades. More than 90 percent of the world's energy supply still comes from oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy. 

These energy sources cannot meet our growing energy needs without lastingly damaging the environment. They increase global warming and lead to the destruction or contamination of vast areas of land. They also encourage armed conflict and corruption in many places.

But alternatives already exist, for we are in the midst of an energy revolution! By switching to renewable energy sources such as sun, water, wind, biomass and geothermal energy, our energy supply can be made sustainable. And only so the preservation of quality of life and habitats for the future can be ensured.

«Today's additional costs for renewable energies amount to avoided environmental damage and low energy costs in the future. We are facing the greatest structural change in the economy since the beginning of the industrial age.»
