Alberta’s energy system requires us to be bold, fearless leaders; to collaborate in ways we never thought possible, be transparent and deliberate storytellers and be balanced while considering the climate, people and the economics. The energy system of the future calls us to to listen, learn from our mistakes and adapt accordingly.

The energy system that the future requires must take into consideration the future generations: the land, the air and the people that will live here.
