In this episode of “Houston Matters” from Houston Public Media News 88.7, Director John A. Pappas of the Texas A&M Wind Energy Center joins a panel discussion about developments in wind energy.

Could wind power be a long-term answer to replacing traditional fossil fuels? How involved are traditional oil and gas companies based here in Houston in developing wind power?

The Wind Energy Center made news on April 5 when Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced the state would award it $2.2 million for a collaborative project to increase the capacity of offshore wind energy technology.
