Forging a route to a low carbon economy for the city of Houston

Brett Perlman joins Alex to talk about how stakeholders from Houston’s energy, policy and technology sectors are coming together to forge a route to a low carbon economy for the city

Houston is not just the ideological center of the energy sector in the U.S but also in the region around it houses a large proportion of the U.S’ petchem and industrial complex. In this conversation, Alex talks with Brett Perlman, CEO of the Center for Houston’s Future, about how stakeholders from across the city and greater Houston area are coming together to create the projects that could transform Houston’s economy, and move it from fossil fuels to hubs focused on hydrogen, CCUS, electrification and circular economy. Lots to talk about here, from collaborations to lessons learned from other regions and countries.
