The Revers Center for Energy T'20 Fellows packed their Hawaiian shirts and traveled to Honolulu and Kona, Hawaii to examine the challenges of transitioning from exporting all energy to becoming 100% renewable energy by 2045. Visits included the Hawaiian Electric Company, the Hawaii State Energy Office, the Office of Climate Change, Sustainability, and Resiliency, the Elemental Excelerator, University of Hawaii, AES Hawaii (coal plant), Covanta Honolulu H-Power Waste to Energy plant, a microgrid, the Natural Energy Laboratory, and of course Parker Ranch with Dutch Kuyper T'92 and Jonathan Mitchell T'12. Come hear from the team on their conclusions about the state's diverging economic interests, technological limitations, cultural and religious elements, and competition for limited land that complicate this clean energy transition.
