Oklahoma City University Screens Documentary about Future of Energy

Oklahoma City University will screen the documentary “Switch” at 6 p.m. April 24 in the Meinders School of Business at N.W. 27th Street and McKinley Avenue. The screening is free to the public and is part of the Karl F. and June S. Martin Family Foundation Energy Speakers Series.

The film is about the latest trends and the future of the energy industry. It was the premiere opening night film at the Environmental Film Festival and won the Best of Fest at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival. It has been lauded by supporters of both fossil fuel and renewable energy resources.

The documentary gleans the expertise of officials from around the world in a wide variety of energy companies, and from sources in government and academic institutions.

The film is part of the Switch Energy Project, an effort designed to build a balanced national understanding of energy.

Phil Dutton, vice president of independent engineering for the GL Garrad Hassan North America consultant firm, said of the documentary:  “Over the 30 years I’ve been working in renewable energy, ‘Switch’ is the most comprehensive and balanced documentary on our world energy situation I’ve ever seen.”
