Switch Energy Alliance (SEA) is a 501(c)(3) dedicated to inspiring an energy-educated future that is objective, nonpartisan, and sensible to protect people and the planet.
Energy fuels the engine of the modern world and has the power to bring billions more out of abject poverty. Because energy reaches into every facet of our lives, it is highly political. Biases and emotions run deep, and facts and data are often distorted, or worse.
SEA's global video- and web-based approach engages students and general viewers in a positive conversation to work collaboratively on energy challenges. SEA reaches millions of people of all ages where they live and learn: online, in classrooms, in professional training, and in museums.
Switch Energy Alliance has established four pillars of energy education that guide the development of nonpartisan video- and web-based energy education programs.
Switch Classroom is a free, video-based online learning platform that provides innovative and entertaining lessons and activities about energy and energy resources to educators and students. Launched in the Fall of 2020, Switch Classroom was developed by the SEA Teacher Advisory Council (TAC). Our platform is appropriate for classes in many different subjects and grade levels - aligning with AP Environmental Science, IB Environmental Systems & Societies, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) standards.
The Switch International Energy Case Competition (SIECC) is a global competition in which university students compete virtually to address real-world energy challenges and develop potential solutions.
SEA is developing a captivating, dynamic, video-based online platform to educate industry and government professionals on vital energy topics. Different from existing continuing education approaches, we will help companies and organizations establish a minimum energy IQ for all staff, covering topics from energy fundamentals, to energy transition, to ESG, and beyond.
SEA's global video- and web-based approach engages general viewers in a positive conversation to work collaboratively on energy challenges. SEA reaches millions of people of all ages through our two documentary films, Switch and Switch On, our television series Energy Switch, and our 5-minute museum film, Energy Makes our World. Our video portfolio has been viewed over 9 million times on our website, YouTube, and social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), and continues to inspire an energy-educated future.
