Free Film Screening: Current Revolution: Transforming America's Electric Grid
How can the utility, auto, tech and defense industries help modernize the aging power grid to make it more secure and responsive to the needs of its users, while enhancing environmental performance? With a focus on national security, economic prosperity, and environmental justice, Current Revolution shows how the nation can embrace smart policies and investments that support grid modernization through distributed renewable energy generation and the development of an electric vehicle infrastructure.
In addition to interviews with top executives, military personnel, utilities workers and elected officials, the film features Arizona State University sustainability scientists Paul Hirt, Christopher Boone, Kris Mayes, Gary Dirks and others. Current Revolution tells the story of a towering American industry on the brink of massive change. Whether it fails, prevails or adapts, the outcome will profoundly affect us all.
ASU environmental historian Paul Hirt will moderate a post-film discussion, including Nate Birnbaum, co-founder and producer of the American Resilience Project.
