The award-winning energy documentary series is back with 12 all-new episodes, featuring discussions about the future of energy in the Canada and North America.

In season one, the Rational Middle Energy Series created a series of short documentary films to look at the energy challenges we face – from extraction to consumption and its impact on our civilization and environment including perhaps the most important, climate change. The series was called “engaging,” “robust,” and “catalyzing” by experts and journalists across the country and is being used in classrooms, town halls, company boardrooms, and political offices alike with the goal of jumpstarting discussions around how to move forward to a cleaner, more sustainable energy mix.

In season two, the films will dive deeper into subjects like transportation, efficiency/conservation, renewables, and natural gas to begin looking for answers that will allow us to begin solving problems and moving forward with the infinite possibilities afforded us by technological advancement, policy action, and sheer will of humanity.

To celebrate the launch of the new season, Rational Middle director Gregory Kallenberg will be hosting a live Google Hangout event on Tuesday, November 5th at 2pm CST which will include the premiere of "Canada’s Way Forward: Finding a Path to the Energy Future," a 12-minute documentary short film followed by a panel discussion featuring a host of experts and your questions, in the spirit of open discussion where everyone can participate.

The future of battery tech, chronicled. 
This week, we've been highlighting the wind industry's record growth. As we continue to incorporate more renewable energy into the grid, energy storage technologies like batteries will be key to providing a continuous flow of clean energy even when the wind isn’t blowing.

Watch the video below to find out how our capacity to store energy at grid-scale might be here sooner than we think!

It's Friday and its hot. Use a fan instead of as much AC.
