Texas is known across the world as a top energy producer, primarily because of the state’s massive oil and gas industry. But as we continue to face the impacts of climate change, some in the state are pushing for Texas to be a national leader in the clean energy movement as well. Hydrogen initiatives are drawing interest. So is geothermal power. Companies large and small are working to figure out the next big thing when it comes to energy. Will these efforts help to secure Texas’ future as an energy and economic leader?
On March 28, join The Texas Tribune online and in Houston — the energy capital of the world — for a noon event that looks deeper into emerging clean energy technologies and what they mean for the state. Our event will be moderated by the Tribune’s climate reporter, Emily Foxhall, and will include brief presentations on various clean energy initiatives, as well as a panel discussion featuring experts discussing why renewable energy matters, the path to implementation and the potential impact on the Texas economy and environment.
This event will be livestreamed and available for viewing afterward.
