The January EFL workshop was the first chance for the EFL Fellows to dip their toes into backcasting waters. Backcasting is central to the Lab because it establishes the creative tension between our desired future and the current reality that will drive innovation in the Lab.
The Energy Future Lab is proud to announce the Government of Alberta as a convening partner. The Hon. Shannon Phillips, Minister of Environment and Parks offers her support for the Energy Futures Lab.
Chad Park sits down with Imaginea Energy President and CEO (and EFL Advisory Council member) Suzanne West to discuss her vision for Alberta’s energy future (including her aspirations for hydrocarbons).

Chair of the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association and Energy Futures Lab Fellow Alison Thompson discusses the opportunities ahead as Alberta looks to create a new, innovative and diversified energy system.
