    Better Energy Solutions

    New technologies and business models are fundamentally changing the way we make, manage, and use energy. We call these technologies “advanced energy,” and they are leading toward a prosperous future.

    An Economic Opportunity

    Texas is a natural for advanced energy. Texas has abundant homegrown resources for making the energy we use secure, clean, reliable, and affordable. And Texas has the pro-business, pro-growth spirit to make the most of the advanced energy opportunity.

    Unleashing America's Advanced Energy Future: Federal Resources to Combat Inflation, Create Jobs, and Achieve Energy Independence

    TAEBA has developed three guides, tailored to specific decision makers – the Governor's office and executive agencies, utility regulators, and Texas lawmakers – to help increase their understanding the far-reaching federal Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and bipartisan Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law). The guides provide succinct descriptions and analyses of the tax incentives, programmatic funding, and other policies in the IRA and IIJA relevant to transportation electrification, domestic manufacturing, and the energy transition. They also identify how the IRA and IIJA can help Texas decision makers achieve their goals - from reducing energy costs, creating jobs, and revitalizing industry to bolstering disadvantaged communities and cutting pollution. Download a guide to learn more about how these federal programs can enable and support an American energy future that’s more affordable, reliable, clean, and independent. 


    Future Proofing the Texas Grid with Distributed Energy Resources

    A new TAEBA white paper, prepared by Converge Strategies, LLC and Synapse Energy Economics, shows how a suite of small, advanced technologies called “distributed energy resources” should be used to help improve the way Texas responds to emergencies like natural disasters. “Future Proofing the Texas Grid With Distributed Energy Resources” outlines how DERs can be better used to make sure food, water, shelter, fuel, and emergency rescue operations can still be provided in extreme situations, like those experienced during Winter Storm Uri in 2021.

    January 2022 Poll of Texas Voters on Electric Grid Reliability

    In January 2022, TAEBA sought opinions from Texans close to the one-year anniversary of Winter Storm Uri. Texans were asked about their experiences with Winter Storm Uri, attitudes about electricity grid reliability, and new technologies like solar energy and electric vehicles. Several voting districts were over-sampled to provide district representative polling results

    Advanced Energy Infrastructure: A Roadmap for Implementation

    With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, funds will be available to state, local, and tribal governments for a variety of advanced energy infrastructure projects. The bill provides funding to address some of Texas state and local policymakers' top energy priorities, such as ensuring a reliable electric grid, lowering energy bills, and supporting advanced energy jobs. This document outlines key federal funding streams for supporting these priorities and includes information about how to access funds

    Electric Transportation Supply Chain in Texas

    This BW Research analysis prepared for Texas Advanced Energy Business Alliance (TAEBA) concludes that Texas is well positioned to benefit form the growth of Electric Transportation (ET), which could give the state's economy a significant boost. Already in 2019, the ET sector contributed nearly $690 million to Texas's Gross State Product (GSP) and employed over 7,000 workers in more than 1,200 companies across the state. The number of workers is expected to grow to over 13,000 workers by 2024, and there are more than 5,000 Texas companies and over 400,000 Texans in industries that could directly benefit from ET growth.

    2020 Report: Economic Impact of Stimulus Investment for Texas

    Texas Advanced Energy Business Alliance (TAEBA) released results of a report that quantified significant economic benefits associated with investments in advanced energy deployment for the state of Texas. The analysis shows $55 billion in stimulus investment in advanced energy would add $350 billion to Texas gross state product, a six-fold return on investment; increase tax revenues; create 2 million jobs; and deliver billions in annual savings to consumers.

    Advanced Energy Jobs in Texas 2020

    Texas Advanced Energy Business Alliance (TAEBA) released its latest employment fact sheet showing that Texas had 254,300 people working in advanced energy as of 2019, more workers than those working in Real Estate (231,031), and more than triple those in Chemical Manufacturing (83,470) across the Lone Star State. Advanced energy employment grew at nearly twice the rate of Texas jobs overall from 2018 to 2019 (4% versus 2%). While hard hit by the coronavirus public health crisis, like many other industries, the track record of job growth and expected future growth suggest that the advanced energy industry could drive economic recovery in Texas.

    Advanced Energy Jobs in Texas 2016

    At just over 143,000 workers, advanced energy employs twice as many Texans as airlines, more than chemical manufacturing and petroleum refining, and nearly as many as building construction. The advanced energy industry now supports just over 1% of statewide employment and is expected to grow 7% by the end of 2016, with employers adding 9,334 new jobs by the end of the year. These are some of the results drawn from a new national Energy Employment Index, produced by BW Research Partnership, a leading workforce and economic development research firm. Advanced Energy Jobs in Texas 2016, prepared by BW Research for TAEBA, is the first report on the size of advanced energy employment in the Lone Star State.
