The AEE Lone Star Chapter invites you to come to our May 2019 luncheon meeting. We have a very time topic for our agenda.

After three 500-year floods in as many years culminating with the largest rain event in North American history, climate change is an unprecedented challenge for Houston. Time for a climate action plan essential to the health and economic vitality of Houston’s future. AEE Lone Star chapter members will be asked for their feedback on building optimization. Participants will have the chance to discuss programs, policies and technologies being considered by the City of Houston 

Participants will work with a table-sized policy/program prioritization matrix and will be asked to evaluate and rank the specific programs and policies for Houston. During the exercise, participants should engage directly with each other to evaluate priorities and trade-offs, which will help set the tone for continued interactive dialogue around the climate action plan. Participants should also feel free to provide additional programs and policies that they feel are important.
