Critical Issues in Energy Symposium: Net Zero Texas by 2050

Thursday, December 1, 2022

11:00 am - 5:30 pm

The Division of Energy and Innovation, along with the UH Center for Carbon Management in Energy (CCME), are hosting a day-long symposium to discuss pathways and solutions to make Texas carbon neutral by 2050. The symposium is a culmination of a multidisciplinary University of Houston research initiative that aims to meet three concurrent objectives a) ensuring affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy for all, b) preserving and improving the quality of life for Texans as demographics rapidly change, and c) maintaining and strengthening the state’s global leadership in the energy industry. UH experts and our energy industry partners will serve as panelists to discuss the drivers, opportunities, and challenges for change, quantifying cogent and plausible pathways for carbon neutrality in Texas, cradle-to-grave lifecycle analyses and techno-economic analyses of proposed solutions, and understanding the associated carbon, socioeconomic, environment al, and equity impacts across five focus areas: · Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage · Electric Grid · Transportation · Financial Incentives · Workforce Development
