The Texas Energy Summit is in its 16th year as the leading energy conference specifically focused on Texas. In 2019, the Summit will be held at the Texas State Capitol, November 12-14 where we will explore the latest market, policy, and technology changes in the energy industry. The Texas Energy Summit is the place for conversations on renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, carbon capture, energy storage, and air quality.
Here are some of the topics and questions we’ll explore:
Renewable energy is growing rapidly in Texas with over 80% of generation in the ERCOT queue either wind or solar.
What impact is renewable energy having on energy prices? On air quality?
What will a projected quadrupling of solar energy in the state in the next 5-10 years mean for the state’s economy?
Electric vehicles are still only 1% of new car sales despite overwhelming public enthusiasm for them.
What are the projections for EVs going forward?
Can EVs help solve Texas’ air quality problems?
What are the opportunities for fleets? Buses? Delivery vehicles?
What role should utilities play?
There are many energy storage projects under consideration in Texas that could make the Lone Star State a prime market for storage.
How should own and operate storage in the Texas market? Utilities? Generators? Developers? Some combination?
What’s the market potential for energy storage in Texas?
Texas is #1 in carbon emissions in the US.
What are the best strategies to reduce carbon?
Will federal incentives for carbon capture and sequestration make a difference?
What are oil and gas companies doing to reduce their emissions?
Texas lags in energy efficiency despite a 20 year history of EE programs.
Will the state increase energy efficiency programs?
Can programs change to focus more on time and location?
Can demand response and electrification of buildings fit into energy efficiency programs?
About 2 out of every 5 Texans lives at or near poverty.
What kinds of policies reduce energy burden for those most in need?
Do low income Texans benefit from clean energy?
