The city of Austin loves its titles. Live Music Capital of the World. Bat Capital of the World. BBQ Capital of the World.
But the next title it hopes to achieve – Clean Energy Capital of the World – is a bit more ambitious.
I spoke with Jose Beceiro of the Austin Chamber of Commerce about the city’s plans in terms of solar, electric cars and green technology. We also discussed the friendly rivalry between Austin and San Antonio, particularly when it comes to solar energy.
