CES Film Series: Energy in Transition

As the world of energy undergoes dramatic change, a series of short documentaries from the Center for Energy Studies provides new insights on key issues shaping our energy future.

The first three films, produced by the Rational Middle Media Group, may be viewed below. 

“Energy Transitions: The Trials and Tribulations of the Cleaner Energy Future” explores the ways forward when a fossil fuel-based energy system and the climate are in conflict.

“LNG: A Global View of its Past, Present and Future” examines the potential of liquid natural gas as a fuel of the future and its impact on global energy markets.

“The Resource Curse: An Exploration in Global Energy Autonomy” considers why
countries with some of the richest energy resources are some of the most energy impoverished. This film also explores energy poverty by analyzing the glaring issues that prevent a country from developing its own energy resources and offering possible solutions to this problem.

Check this space throughout 2020 for the latest additions to the series.
