Houston’s economy has long been tied to the energy industry, and the energy industry has invested in the city’s growth. As the transition to a lower-carbon economy accelerates, Houston is evolving apace—working hard to meet growing global demand for energy while building on its economic strengths.

The energy transition will reshape not only Houston’s economy, but also the city’s role in the global economy. In this report, the Houston Energy Transition Initiative—a strategic initiative led by the Greater Houston Partnership—examines how the city can become the world’s energy-transition capital.

With input from Vinson & Elkins, the report focuses on how Houston can leverage its talent, industry expertise, financiers, and infrastructure to promote capital formation in the energy transition, while fostering, attracting, and developing energy-transition projects across the value chain. It calls for action from the Houston business community to secure future investments and the city’s energy-transition future.
