The Texas Clean Energy Coalition is committed to enhancing Texas’ economy by positioning our state as the world leader in the new clean energy industry as a complement to the traditional oil and gas energy industry leadership.
We support a clean energy economy in Texas, based on diverse clean technologies including energy efficiency, renewable energy and increased use of natural gas and other clean fuels, as a way to help Texas achieve its full economic potential in a manner that is affordable and available to all Texans.
We recognize that even though an investment in clean energy will pay big dividends in the future, there are some costs that must be paid up front. Clean energy policies must include provisions that utilize or enhance existing protections for those Texans with the least ability to bear the brunt of these costs on their own.
The Texas Clean Energy Coalition sponsors original research on the impact of clean energy and energy efficiency on the Texas economy, and highlights outstanding new research by others. Read more about our work here.
The Texas Clean Energy Coalition believes that as the global leader of the traditional energy industry Texas has enormous technical, financial and educational expertise in energy exploration, production and marketing.
Now is the time to harness our state’s expertise and our can‐do attitude to ensure that we emerge as the leading clean energy economy in the United States and the world. Doing so will create additional jobs and economic growth for Texas, secure a domestic energy supply and protect the opportunity of future generations of Texans.
