The Catalyst Project was launched in 2008 to urge Texas lawmakers to support the clean energy industry in the 2009 state legislature. The project’s deliverable, a white-paper culled from two dozen interviews with clean energy and economic development experts, helped set the tone at the Capitol and — according to some insiders — still stands as the best articulation of Texas’ catbird position as the clean energy capital of the U.S.
