EnergyCents - Ep 42: Texas Forever: Why Houston will maintain its role as the world’s energy capital
More than 20% of Houston GDP relates to activities in the traditional energy industry – a sector that is being disrupted by innovation in low-carbon energies. How will the effects of this disruption compare to the economic decline observed in 1990s Detroit, whose GDP was heavily reliant on an evolving automobile industry? IHS Markit Regional Economist Karl Kuykendall joins EnergyCents this week to discuss the historically resilient Texas economy, and why we should be optimistic for Houston, the Energy Capital of the World, as it undergoes economic transition.
