About the Energy Futures Lab:

The Energy Futures Lab (EFL) is an Alberta-based coalition of innovators and leading organizations working together to advance solutions aligned with our 2050 vision for Canada's energy future. Powered by The Natural Step Canada, the EFL was created in 2015 as a response to harmful polarization on energy issues, which landed Alberta’s energy system at the centre of a complex, fragmented and divisive debate. As a social innovation lab, we address these issues by collaborating across traditional, organizational and sectoral boundaries.
