The Fourth Revolution: Energy, also known as Die 4. Revolution – Energy Autonomy, is a German documentary film about renewable energy by Carl-A. Fechner, released in 2010. It shows the vision of a global society, which lives in a world where the energy is produced 100% with renewable energies, showing a complete reconstruction of the economy, to reach this goal.
The production of the film lasted four years and was financed by volunteers. The parts of the film were made in 10 different countries, showing existing pioneer projects in different cultures: from the vision of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Muhammed Yunus and his micro-credits over the visions of the Right Livelihood Award laureate Hermann Scheer to enterprises that work hard to become all these visions' reality. The film started in the cinemas of Germany March 18, 2010 and had its U.S. premiere at the San Francisco Green Film Festival in March 2011.
In the German trailer to the film, the revolution in capitalist ownership of energy resources is stressed; Hermann Scheer says that "instead of a few owners we will have hundreds of thousands..." and "energy supply will receive a democratization". The film embodies the thinking of Hermann Scheer before his sudden death in 2010.
