The Energy Futures Lab (EFL) in Alberta recently reviewed over 100 applications and announced the carefully chosen names of 40 fellows—key influencers from industry, Aboriginal communities, government, NGOs and more. The fellows will collaborate together over the next three years to help Alberta shift to a more sustainable energy system. We are proud to report that Erin Welk from our Calgary office was one of the chosen fellows.
