Real Decarbonization at Scale with Alan Armstrong

As president and CEO of Williams, Alan Armstrong runs a $65 billion enterprise — so his time and insights are always valuable. But I wanted to pick Alan’s brain one more time for the latest episode of the Real Decarbonization podcast, because he has one of the best seats in the house when it comes to leading decarbonization action while running a business critical to our day-to-day life.

Our mini-pod conversation covers everything from geopolitics to novel technology for creating hydrogen from natural gas. You’ll come away understanding how Alan thinks about investing pragmatically in real decarbonization at scale.

A few of Alan’s insights

On challenges and opportunities: “We can't wait 20 years for new technology to get after it in reducing carbon. On the other hand, relying on sources that will continue to produce carbon for the long haul is not feasible either. We have really got to take it on from both angles.”

On achieving real decarbonization: “Simple technologies that require a lot of different resources are not necessarily the answer for us. We are going to have to [decarbonize] at scale. Our industry knows how to do that, and we've got a new generation that's excited about it.”
