    • Synopsis
    • The documentary film "The 4th Revolution – Energy Autonomy", directed by Carl-A. Fechner, presents the truly thrilling vision of a world community with an energy supply that derives entirely from renewable sources – accessible to everyone, affordable, clean and free of pollution. A global restructuring process, shifting the balance of power and distributing capital more fairly, is now within our reach – all we have to do is embark upon it!
      Introducing us to exemplary projects in ten different countries, and to the pioneers behind them, Carl Fechner's film shows us how to do just that. For instance: the most energy-efficient office building in the world is located in Germany – it produces more energy than it consumes! Renewable energies are securing the livelihoods of families in Mali and Bangladesh, by means of carefully planned financing models. And alternative energy concepts are also revolutionising the automotive industry, inspiring entirely new approaches to mobility.
