Hawai'i Interactive Maps Website Showcases Renewable Energy Projects

Dec. 30, 2011

As a state taking on one of the most aggressive energy efficiency and renewable energy goals in the nation—transform to a 70% clean energy economy by 2030—Hawaii is working to implement numerous renewable energy and energy efficiency projects on each of its islands.

Through the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI), a partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the state of Hawai’i, NREL worked with the state’s Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism to develop an interactive maps website that highlights more than 40 clean energy projects.

The website includes details on select projects such as location, type of technology, amount of energy generated, project status, a brief summary, and links to more information. View the interactive maps on the HCEI Island Projects Web page.

The HCEI website is just one of the many accomplishments achieved so far through the initiative. HCEI working groups are addressing specific goals for end-use efficiency, electricity, fuels, and transportation. Learn more about the strategies and accomplishments of these working groups and the effort overall in the HCEI Road Map Introduction & Overview 2011 and HCEI Road Map: 2011 Edition.
