Houston, "The Energy Capital of the World," has experienced three 500-year-flood disasters --including the destruction from Hurricane Harvey-- in the same amount of years. We've seen local talent rise to these challenges in the past, and want to give them a platform to take their solutions to the next level. In such a diverse city with a tremendous amount of resources, it seems only natural that Houston can help lead the way in developing local solutions that can scale to other contexts...especially in light of the Mayor's recently-announced Climate Action Plan
