Houston Dynamo Will Add RE
The Houston Dynamo Football Club announced a naming rights agreement with Shell Energy that includes goals to pursue a variety of integrated energy and decarbonization solutions at the stadium.
The goals include a near-term goal to reduce the Club’s Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 50% by 2026 from a 2018 base year.
Beginning in early 2023, Shell Energy will institute a decarbonization program starting with energy efficiency improvements to venue-wide LED lighting, on-site renewable energy via a rooftop solar array, renewable electricity, energy monitoring and management with a sub-metering system and installation of EV charging stations.
The major league soccer stadium, home to both Houston Dynamo FC and Houston Dash NWSL, will re-open its doors as Shell Energy Stadium in 2023.
“On behalf of the Club, we are ecstatic to not only expand our relationship with Shell Energy but combine efforts to truly impact the city of Houston through an array of community and sustainability projects,” Club Majority Owner and Chairman, Ted Segal said in a statement.
