Making the Future
Travelling across the US and Brazil, Dallas Campbell and Kari Byron reveal how innovation and collaboration hold the key to the energy of the future. From community based solar projects bringing energy to the favelas of Brazil to the radical and futuristic transport system Hyperloop in California, they will meet, interview and participate with the teams who are inventing new ways to create and use the sustainable energies of the future.
Africa & China+
In China, Dallas and Kari learn how the waste oil from the restaurant industry could be turned into 30 million tonnes of biodiesel. In Nairobi, Kenya, Dallas installs a gravity powered light and cooks with a stove that's saving millions of trees. In China, Kari visits a tidal current generator built by a beef jerky millionaire. In Rwanda, Dallas investigates the largest off-grid battery system in Africa. Finally, in Chengdu, China, the hosts set up a bio-digester that turns pig poo into methane.
In London Dallas and Kari learn about a use for coffee grounds. Dallas travels to Freiburg where architect Rolf Disch lives in a house that produces energy, then takes to the skies in an electric plane. In Hamburg, Kari drives a hydrogen fuel cell car and discovers that transport can be 100% green. She also learns about another Hydrogen hope for the future, ITER. In Iceland we learn how the country runs entirely on renewable energy. Finally, in Scotland the hosts meet an icon of energy generation and build their own turbine.
