Filmed around the world, POWER TRIP uncovers the hidden energy that is embedded in our modern way of life and takes viewers on a journey through the past, present and future of energy. As our world faces growing demand for and worsening environmental impacts from energy, we are at a crossroads and the stakes are high. But history shows us that energy’s great value is that it allows societies to reinvent themselves.
