Broadcasting from October 2007 to March 2009, the Seiji Mizushima-directed Mobile Suit Gundam 00 series is set in 2307 AD. Due to the depletion of fossil fuels, humanity relies on solar energy collected by three orbital elevators, controlled by one of the three “power blocs”, the Union (Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations), controlling the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan; the Human Reform League (controlling nearly all of mainland Asia sans the Middle East along with most of Oceania; and the AEU (Advanced European Union), which controls mainland Europe as well as many islands in the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. With this nearly inexhaustible source of energy benefiting only the major powers and their allies, constant warfare erupts around the globe among minor countries for fuel and energy.
The series follows the exploits of the organization Celestial Being in their crusade to end all acts of war through armed interventions using state-of-the-art Gundam type mobile suits.
The 00 series received a theatrical film in 2010, titled Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: A wakening of the Trailblazer set two years after the end of the series in 2314 AD.
