Join us for our twentieth anniversary! Border Energy Forum XX will take place November 6 - 8, 2013 at the Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk-Downtown.
The Texas General Land Office is excited to celebrate twenty years of insightful and enthusiastic conversation about the ever changing energy industry. We are especially looking forward to this year's Forum in San Antonio, right at the heart of the Eagle Ford Shale discussion. More than ever, the potential of clean energy like natural gas and renewables, combined with traditional oil production, in the ten border states is boundless. Last year's Border Energy Forum in Hermosillo, Mexico was a huge success, and we look forward to continuing the conversation in San Antonio.
The original idea for the Border Energy Forum was to gather 50 people each from the United States and Mexico once a year to exchange information about the best ways to produce and consume energy in our fast-growing region, forge new partnerships and help each other work together on our twin goals of economic development and environmental protection.
Although we have grown to an annual crowd surpassing 300, usually evenly divided between Americans and Mexicans, we have otherwise fulfilled that original concept to become a cornerstone of energy policy and program development for the region.
We have representatives from the federal governments of both Mexico and the United States, as well as state and local officials from both sides of the border. We have men and women from the private sector - energy producers and energy consumers - university professors researchers and members of environmental groups.
The Forum has met at least once in each of the 10 U.S. and Mexican border states, and are glad to return to Texas for the twentieth anniversary.
