A two-day workshop heading to Grande Prairie is hoping to give experts something to think about when it comes to the energy sector.
The Energy Futures Roadshow swings through the city on the weekend of April 3rd, and it will showcase a fictional Canadian city, and participants will role play through decades of energy transition scenarios from all aspects of the sector.
Energy Futures Lab Managing Director Alison Cretney says the simulation style event is something they’ve used a lot over the last couple of years.
“We’ve played it over 40 times over the province over the last few years with various groups of people. It’s turned out to be an excellent learning experience.”
Cretney believes from CEOs to stakeholders, it’s an opportunity for those interested to open their eyes to a completely different viewpoint as to where the province could be heading.
“Invariably there is different insights with players saying ‘Wow, I had no idea that group over there experienced those challenges day to day or it wasn’t as simple as I thought’.”
The Energy Futures Lab was created in 2013.
