Each Tuesday of this month, Houston Matters has explored efforts here in Greater Houston to pursue alternative, renewable forms of energy. In previous weeks, we discussed solar energyhydrogenwind power, and biofuels.

On this edition of the program, we ask what you’d prefer to see energy companies here in Texas pursue – whether traditional fossil fuels, like oil and natural gas, or the alternatives we discussed in previous weeks, or alternatives we have NOT yet discussed – from geothermal to hydroelectric power and beyond. If you ran an energy company in Houston, what sources of energy would you want to pursue? Along the way, we’ll discuss the environmental impact and economic policies associated with all forms of alternative energy, with Dave Fehling, Houston Public Media’s State Impact reporter for energy and the environment.
