Join us in creating the energy future we need!

The Energy Futures Lab (EFL) is entering a new phase, deepening our work in Alberta and exploring avenues to expand our impact nationally. We are working together to explore the question: how can we leverage our leadership position in today’s energy system to create the energy system that the future requires of us?

The EFL is a multi-interest, collaborative platform that facilitates constructive dialogue around Alberta’s energy future and enables real-world experimentation and learning. At the heart of the EFL is the Energy Futures Lab Fellowship representing diverse perspectives from across Alberta’s energy system. For the last four years, EFL Fellows have established working relationships, created a shared vision for Alberta's energy future, and prototyped numerous initiatives together. These successes have created the platform to test, refine and implement collaborative initiatives.

The Energy Futures Lab Fellowship invites you to join this collaborative platform, refine ideas, and scale the impact of these initiatives. New Fellows will:

  • Participate in EFL Fellow collaborative workshops and events. 
  • Join and refine existing initiatives or identify and implement new collaborative initiatives.
  • Be profiled on the EFL website alongside current Fellows.
  • Participate in a 90-min onboarding webinar and a full day orientation workshop for 2019 Fellows, to ensure a common level of understanding and experience.
To apply to be a Fellow of the Energy Futures Lab, please complete this single page application form below.
