An award winning documentary screening in India
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.
Get the straight answers to today’s most pressing energy questions in Switch, the acclaimed new documentary and web video series.
In Switch, energy visionary Dr. Scott Tinker travels the world, exploring leading energy sites from coal to solar, oil to biofuels, most of them highly restricted and never before seen on film. He seeks the truth from the international leaders of government, industry and academia. In the end, he cuts through the confusion to discover a path to our energy future as surprising as it is practical.
Building on a successful US theatrical and university run, Switch will play across the globe this year. Dr. Tinker and director Harry Lynch will lead discussions at select screenings and are available for interviews.
About the Project:
Switch is part of the Switch Energy Project (www.switchenergyproject.com), a multiâ€platform effort to

The project was created by Arcos Films, directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Harry Lynch and coâ€produced with energy expert Dr. Scott Tinker. It also includes a continually expanding website of 300 videos on the energy topics that drive our world; a university screening and energy efficiency program coâ€developed with the Geological Society of America; an education program of videos and curricula codeveloped with NEED.org and the American Geological Institute; and eventually a broadcast/webcast
series to discover solutions to our most pressing energy challenges.
