Houston Low-Carbon Energy Webcast Series

Discussing Greater Houston’s opportunities to lead on carbon capture and hydrogen in a low-carbon economy.

In 2019, the Center and the University of Houston released Houston Low Carbon Market Assessment: Four Ways Forward. The market assessment outlines four areas — carbon capture, hydrogen, the low-carbon grid and advanced plastics recycling — in which the Houston region can lead the global energy transition. We quantified the scope, size and challenge required to decarbonize Houston’s industrial energy sector and to envision what new industries might emerge from those efforts.

Out of that work, we released two white papers offering an expanded look into CCUS and hydrogen: Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage – Lynchpin for the Energy Transition and Houston Region: Becoming a Global Hydrogen Hub.

In 2021, the Center hosted a discussion on our research findings with panelists Chuck McConnell, Energy Center Officer at University of Houston’s Center for Carbon Management in Energy; Andy Steinhubl, Retired Partner at KPMG; and Cindy Yeilding, Retired Senior Vice President at BP America.
