The Switch Energy Project could not have happened without the generous support of the below foundations. They have our deepest thanks.
The O’Donnell Foundation
A private foundation devoted to building model programs to enhance the quality of education.
The AAPG Foundation
The educational foundation for the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, which supports earth sciences through educational grants and university scholarships.
The AGI Foundation
The foundation for the American Geosciences Institute, the largest non-profit provider of earth science teaching materials, which supports educational, scientific, and charitable activities.
The GSA Foundation
The foundation for the Geological Society of America, which supports geologists and the study of earth science at academic, government and industry levels.
The Verizon Foundation
The foundation focuses on using technology to solve the critical social issues of sustainability, education and healthcare, and to foster smart energy practice in communities and universities.
Most of the spectacular sites we visited for filming are remote, restricted, and/or required specialized transport. The energy companies, governments, NGOs and universities who own these facilities provided logistical, financial and/or organizational support, along with access to their employees, properties and technologies. We owe them, and many individuals who provided advice and supported the mission of the project from its earliest days, a debt of gratitude.
Facts, figures and forecasts in the Switch Energy Project film, website and education programs have been fact-checked by the filmmaking team and qualified research assistants. None of the above organizations influenced the content of the film, other than providing and verifying data. All content for this project is the responsibility of Arcos Films LLC, under the direction of Harry Lynch and with expert guidance from Dr. Scott Tinker.
