City of Houston’s Climate Action Plan

The City of Houston recently announced its Climate Action Plan that will bring together stakeholders from across the community to develop a variety of cost-effective energy efficiency, renewable energy and transportation measures that will reduce community-wide greenhouse gas emissions and uphold the goals of the Paris Agreement.

HARC will serve as the technical advisor and lead researcher on the project. Directed by a team including Dr. Gavin Dillingham and Marina Badoian-Kriticos, researchers will provide expertise to run the models and to develop the most effective climate mitigation measures in the region.

To design the plan, the City is also partnering with C40, a global non-profit that works with cities to develop and implement plans to mitigate carbon risk.

The target completion date for the plan is December 2019 and its publication will allow the City to start in 2020 with a defined path forward to reduce carbon emissions and continue to lead global cities in efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The plan is funded by CenterPoint Energy and the Jacob and Terese Hershey Foundation. Learn more about the plan by visiting City of Houston’s Climate Action Plan website.
