Aloha! The State of Hawaii has a bold energy agenda – to achieve 100 percent clean energy by the year 2045. Along with reducing our islands’ dependency on fossil fuels and increasing efficiency measures, the clean energy plan is also contributing to the state’s economic growth.
Because Hawaii is committed to re-powering the clean energy market, we have embraced bold solutions that will help develop this competitive industry making Hawaii one of the leaders in the clean energy race.
The Hawaii State Energy Office is leading the charge and has embarked on a strategic plan to position Hawaii as a proving ground for clean energy technologies and accelerate our transformation to a clean energy economy.
HSEO has launched a web page to provide information on the 13 solar-plus-storage and three standalone storage projects announced by the Hawaiian Electric Companies as part of the largest renewable energy procurement ever undertaken in Hawaii. The development of the web page is part of the HSEO’s ongoing effort to keep Hawaii’s communities better informed about renewable energy projects from the early stages of their development.

The 7th Hawaii Energy Conference will be a live stream event on July 30. This year’s theme, Imagining a Just Recovery. What Would that Look Like for the Grid? will discuss how the energy sector can and should respond to our current challenges by creating a “just” electrical grid. HSEO Chief Energy Officer Scott Glenn will join the panel, Solar Jobs – Being Part of the Solution? on how jobs in solar and other parts of the “clean“ energy sector can contribute to a Just Recovery.
