Hawaii Economic Development Boards

The Hawaii Economic Development Boards (HEDB) are an excellent first stop resource in gathering pertinent and valuable information, contacts and resources for prospective renewable energy companies seeking successful establishment in Hawaii.

The HEDB’s efforts support a healthy economy in the state by advocating the growth, retention and recruitment of businesses that support jobs in Hawaii. These organizations are also actively involved in infrastructure, planning, and workforce development to build the foundation for a prosperous economy.

Among the other initiatives listed, these boards seek the following as illustrated by Enterprise Honolulu, Oahu’s economic development board:

1. Retention of existing businesses in Hawaii and assist in their health and where possible, expansion.

2. Attraction of new high value businesses to Hawaii, including the growth of knowledge based companies.

3. Facilitation of progress on such infrastructure and planning issues that involve land, water and permitting in order to move the state towards energy independence and food independence.

4. Participation with other organizations in workforce development planning to ensure that Hawaii residents have the skills necessary to compete in a global economy.
