The City Series – Houston was an invitation-only event with limited capacity, yet aimed to be inclusive and all-encompassing by welcoming diverse viewpoints from participants within and outside of the industry for true debate, dialogue and formation of solutions. This event was presented by Energy Dialogues LLC, a distinguished international alliance of energy leaders, and took place at the Baker Institute’s Center for Energy Studies at Rice University.
