Houston, like many growing cities worldwide, is being challenged by a growing population, increased energy and municipal service needs, economic housing shortfalls, and environmental justice and socio-economic issues. This has been heightened by the need to increase resiliency to global level problems like automation, the energy transition, and climate change driven weather, water, and energy problems. This has brought Houston to a cross-roads, where we can now redefine and prepare our city for the future or wait until it is too late to change.
Innovation, has always been a cornerstone of Houston; with NASA and the Texas Medical Center know worldwide as Centers of Excellence. Yet, while Houston has incredible expertise in individual companies, there has never been a Energy Center of Excellence that brings us together to identify innovative ways to produce and consume energy while minimizing our impact on the environment.
