As the Energy Capital of the World, Houston is the headquarters and the intellectual capital for virtually every segment of the energy industry. The world around us is changing and, as the industry evolves, Houston is uniquely positioned to lead the transition to a cleaner, more efficient, and more sustainable, lower carbon world.

Join us for a virtual discussion with Emily Reichert, CEO of Greentown Labs—North America’s largest climatech incubator. Headquartered in Boston, Greentown Labs announced this week they will be opening a second location in Houston to broaden their impact and help accelerate the energy transition through cleantech entrepreneurship. This comes at a time of great momentum for Houston’s innovation ecosystem and further positions the region as a leader in energy efficiency, transportation and generation.

Representatives from Greentown Houston’s founding partners and key academia will join Emily to discuss the impact of this announcement and how Houston plans to lead the global energy transition.
