-Sound of erupting volcano over black screen
-Video of erupting volcano, video of vegetative growth (time lapse) (Picture in Picture)
-Video of wave crashing, video of calm ocean (PIP)
-Video of gusting winds (tornado), video of calm winds (PIP)
-Video of raging flames, video of sunset (PIP)
V1 (Male): We can control what is seemingly out of our control. From earth, water, wind, fire—comes energy—created by the natural world. Three of these resources produce unlimited energy. The other represents the ground on which we stand. Ground that we must preserve, protect.
-Icons (4) appear and join as one to form logo
-Small video frames (Video montage B) appear toward bottom of people living daily lives (relying on energy)
V2 (Female): Welcome to The Energy Lab
Scene 2 (What Energy Powers)
-Video Montage B (from scene 1) fills the screen. Rapid succession of video, simultaneous, overlapping. Shows people in vehicles, pumping gas, playing video games, at sports venues, on phones, at concerts, etc. Keys in on electricity sources, gas/oil sources. Lights, stereos, cars being turned on. Clips get faster and faster.
V2 (Female): Energy is everywhere. We count on it—day and night.
-Graphic of objects (car, computer, camera, etc.) surrounding icon of the elements
V1 (Male): Billions of people go about their lives using fuel and electricity to power cars, phones...
V2 (Female): …video games, computers, televisions, cameras, lights, homes
Scene 3 (Non-Renewable Energy)
-Video of oil rig on land and in the ocean, coal excavator inside mine or on mountain top, drill on land (nat. gas) or gas well burning off excess (flame on top of smokestack)
V1 (Male): Now listen to this. We depend—almost completely, on energy created from non-renewable resources. Oil, coal, natural gas, and uranium for nuclear power. And like anything that is in limited supply. The more you use...
V2 (Female): …the less you have. What would [video cuts out, simulates power outage] we do if we lost power. Everyone has been home during a power outage. No big deal right, light a few candles, wait it out.
V1 (Male): But what if the power didn't come back on? It's not out of the question.
Scene 4 (Renewable Energy)
-Video of surfer riding pipeline
V1 (Male): There are new ways to create fuel and electricity—new ways. Surfers have been harnessing the energy from waves for over a thousand years. Easier said than done, right? (surfer falls off board)
-Video of person chasing paper that is blowing in the wind
V1 (Male): Sometimes we find ourselves chasing the wind. Not so easy. But when we know where the strongest winds will be, when we're ready and waiting—we can harness energy.
-Video of outfielder losing sight of ball in the sun
V2 (Female): Everyone counts on the sun for energy, (ball hits outfielder or hits ground) not just the opposing team. Solar panels collect it—and not just for calculators. More and more homes are using it to power nearly everything.
Scene 5 (How Renewable Energy is Harnessed)
-Video of waves/ocean, graphics of water buoy in action
V2 (Female): As long as there is ocean, there is energy. We can extract it through temperature differences in the water, high and low tides—and waves. Wave energy is produced when electricity generators are placed on the ocean's surface. [Water buoy animation begins, script to coincide]
V1 (Male): Wind is another energy source that will always be available. Wind turbines will harness energy when placed in ideal locations based upon wind speeds and patterns, and potential obstructions such as trees or buildings. [Wind turbine animation begins, script to coincide]
V2 (Female): Scientists expect the sun to to burn bright for another 5 billion years. Until then, we have the most abundant source of renewable energy on the planet. The sun's rays reach the earth in the form of solar energy. [Solar panel animation begins, script to coincide]
Scene 6 (How Electricity Gets to Me)
V2 (Female): So we've got all this energy now, and from renewable resources—now what?
V1 (Male): Well, we generate power for a reason—we need it. It gets distributed to our homes, businesses, and transportation systems through the power grid. [Power grid animation begins (spark of electricity from power plant > running through a wire > reaching utility pole > running through a wire in to a home > to a wall socket), script to coincide]
Scene 7 (How Electricity Gets to Me)
V2 (Female): In this country, we use—a lot—of electricity and fuel. The entire planet can use up to 12.5 trillion watts of power at any given moment. Can we satisfy this demand with renewable resources alone? Well, water power can provide 2 trillion watts, wind power can provide 85 trillion watts—and solar power can provide up to 580 trillion watts of power at any single moment. The sun shines more available energy on to the earth in one hour than we use in a year.
Scene 8 (Conclusion)
V1 (Male): There is an abundance of energy from renewable resources. There always will be. Scientists and engineers have made great strides creating technology to harness energy from these sources. We must continue to push the limits of technology—to discover, design, build. Energy is all around us—we just need to grab it. It's not quite that simple, we know, but it's comforting that if scientists, engineers, and students continue to innovate, we will continue to have power.
