Big Ideas for Our Energy Future Series

In March 2020, the Lab’s Managing Director, Alison Cretney, co-wrote an article with Chad Park titled Five Big Ideas for Alberta’s Economic Recovery. These ideas included hydrogen, geothermal energy, Bitumen Beyond Combustion, artificial intelligence and machine learning as well as lithium. The article was well received and in response, Energy Futures Lab hosted two events featuring EFL Fellows with expertise in these fields. Of course, there are many more “Big Ideas” shaping our energy future, which is why the Lab has decided to extend this conversation through to October 2020.

Energy Futures Lab’s Big Ideas for Our Energy Future will be an interactive speaker series in which participants are invited to connect virtually with members of the EFL network. By discussing new ideas as a community, the Lab sees an opportunity to encourage cross-pollination across all stakeholders in the energy system on the topic of how we can create the energy system the future requires of us while fuelling economic recovery in Alberta. Participants are encouraged to build connections and explore how various topics might be shaping Canada’s collective relationship with the energy landscape.
