Power to Change shows that a more rapid turnaround in energy policy towards 100-percent renewables is possible, even faster than what opponents would have you believe. With a strong story, breathtaking pictures, and an engaging musical score, this film offers an insight into how a renewable energy revolution can be achieved. For Fechner, the goal is that after watching his film it will be impossible to dismiss the vital transformation of our entire energy supply as an idealistic dream. By visualizing the struggle and the social quantum leap that this transformation requires, the film aims to provoke change.
