Hawai'i Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI)
The Hawai'i Clean Energy Initiative is charting a new path toward an energy-independent future for Hawai'i. Today, imported oil supplies 90% of Hawai'i's energy. Our dependence on oil threatens our most precious resources—the land, air, and water that sustain us. And it places our economic security at risk. Simply stated, our current way of meeting our energy needs is not sustainable. We must alter our course.
A partnership between the state of Hawai‘i and the U.S. Department of Energy launched in 2008, the Hawai‘i Clean Energy Initiative is bringing together business leaders, policy makers, and concerned citizens committed to leading Hawai‘i to energy independence.
