11:00 AM Energy Storage: Batteries, Hydrogen, Transportation, Grid & Off-Grid
As we seek alternatives to our current forms of stored energy (liquid and solid fossil fuels), batteries and hydrogen are emerging as a way to store renewable energy for use when and where it is needed. Grid-connected hydrogen and battery energy storage systems can smooth out power fluctuations, or capture cheap electricity for delivery when electricity demand is at its peak. In vehicles, batteries or hydrogen tanks provide emission-free energy for vehicles, displacing gasoline and diesel fuel. Hear about recent developments from industrial and research leaders who have designed, built, and are operating the state-of-the-art working systems.

11:00 AM Building a Sustainable “Green” Workforce in Hawaii: Sustainable UH and the Sustainability Internship Program (Case Studies)
Hawaii has some of the most impressive energy goals in the country, including reducing its dependence on fossil fuel by 70% by 2030. To accomplish these and other goals for energy and food independence, a green workforce of trained tradespeople and professionals for every sector of society must be developed. This panel will feature an overview of Sustainable UH, a student led organization that implemented many low-to-no cost energy, waste and water projects saving the university over $100,000 annually. From this program the Sustainability Internship Program (SIP) was created where students perform similar audits and implement projects for businesses and organizations throughout Hawaii. Students replace their part time jobs with paid green workforce experience, employers pay a minimum to save money and green their organizations, and Hawaii has a more sustainable future.

1:30 PM Utility Infrastructure/Renewables
Our utility systems were designed for central station power production that could be controlled (turned on and off; ramped up and down) to meet the demand. Customers demanded power; the utility was designed and equipped to meet the fluctuating demand. Now, with decentralized and intermittent renewables being added to the system, supply as well as demand can fluctuate, ramp up and down, and turn itself on and off. Hear from the experts about how existing systems, new controls, new approaches, and new technologies are being developed and deployed to meet the needs of this increasingly complex system.
