Are You Ready?

Economic Recovery
Environmental Recovery

Renewable energy is at the forefront of both of these issues. Issues the presidential administration has made a priority.

Houston is poised to be the nation's leader in renewable energy. We are already the hydrocarbon based energy leader. We have the ability, and the responsibility, to lead the transition from carbon positive energy to carbon neutral Energy. Much of the infrastructure is already in place. We are a technology leader. We have a higher concentration of energy knowledge than any other city. So what are we missing?


We are missing you: The entrepreneurial minded individual, the energy professional, the ancillary services professional, the business professional, the professor, the researcher, the engaged student. We need you to join us in leading the nation in the transition from traditional thought, to renewable energy!

We look forward to seeing you in future events and continuing to work with you as the leaders in the Renewable Energy Revolution.
