Energy Futures Lab Now Features 58 Fellows

This spring the Energy Futures Lab welcomed 13 new Fellows. Together with the 12 who joined earlier in 2017, the new cohort adds energy and fresh perspectives to the Energy Futures Lab.

Please welcome our second 2017 intake of Fellows to the Energy Futures Lab!

With the EFL Fellowship we are assembling an influential network capable of tackling the complexity and polarization of today’s energy challenges. In selecting these new Fellows, we aimed to increase the diversity of representation in the lab from, for example, rural Alberta and Albertans of Indigenous heritage.

All new Fellows attend a Leadership Bootcamp which includes the Newtonian Shift energy transition simulation. Bootcamps are also open to anyone interested playing an active role in shaping Alberta’s energy system and its future.

Please welcome our second 2017 intake of Fellows to the Energy Futures Lab!
