February’s winter storm left millions of Texas in the cold and dark during the worst power blackouts in recent memory. Texans were understandably furious as critical infrastructure failed statewide. And political groups of all stripes predictably tried to capitalize on the situation. But we need to rise above politics if we are going to make sure Texans have the reliable and resilient energy infrastructure necessary to power our lives and economy.
To get an informed understanding of what went wrong – and what we need to do to shore up our state’s infrastructure against future disasters – Texas 2036 CEO Margaret Spellings hosted a conversation with Tracee Bentley, President & CEO, Permian Strategic Partnership, and Pat Wood, CEO of Hunt Energy Network and former Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Public Utility Commission of Texas.
