Everything is bigger in Texas, especially when it comes to energy. Our state is number one in total energy production, biodiesel production capacity and solar energy potential, with much of the sector’s leadership and production coming from Irving-Las Colinas based companies.
The energy cluster is made up of three sub-clusters: oil and gas exploration and production, electric/coal/nuclear power generation, and renewable and sustainable energy generation. With Texas’ geography and natural resources, sophisticated transportation infrastructure, highly skilled labor force and business acumen, we lead the way in powering the state and the country, and Irving is a major force in this sector.
The Irving-Las Colinas based Fortune 500 powerhouse, Pioneer Natural Resources, an oil and gas exploration and production company, has recently expanded and moved into a new 1-million-square-foot corporate campus.
Irving-Las Colinas-based industry leader Vistra, a premier, integrated energy company and parent company to Irving-Las Colinas-based TXU Energy and Luminant, is one of the largest competitive residential electricity providers in the country, and its retail brands serve approximately 3.7 million residential, commercial, and industrial customers with electricity and gas.
The demand for renewable energies, like wind and solar, is growing with increased pressure on companies to implement green, sustainable initiatives. Irving-Las Colinas companies like Freedom Solar are helping meet that demand.
