In the first installment of Planting the Seed, our blogger, Tyler Seed gives you an overview of the inaugural Energy Futures Lab workshop. In the coming months, he will be following developments in the Energy Futures Lab, touching base with a number of the Fellows, and tracking EFL public engagement efforts.
