Power Generation & Management – I

Clean Energy as the Economic Growth Engine

Chair and Moderator: Robbie Alm, Hawaiian Electric

The drive for “clean energy” remains a very high priority for President Obama as demonstrated by the continuing support in particular of energy partnerships with Asian and Caribbean nations.  One of the aspects of this drive is the opportunity for substantial economic growth in jobs, capital infusion and creation, and tax revenue growth, among other economic benefits.  The potential for such growth and its impact on particularly the local economy where the energy is created and used will be highlighted and discussed by the panel participants.  The examples provided by the activities in Hawai‘i will be used to show how clean energy is impacting the local economy.

Power Generation & Efficiency - II

Expanding RE Penetration via Undersea Transmission

Chair and Moderator: Gerald Sumida, Carlsmith Ball LLP

Undersea cable systems have been installed throughout the world to deliver electric energy beyond major bodies of water. These systems can also expand serviced, increase reliability, deliver power with price and supply diversity benefits and, for Hawai‘i, possibly provide a Statewide grid. The State of Hawai‘i has enacted a regulatory framework for an inter-island cable system and will be issuing a request for proposals to implement this system coupled with large-scale energy projects. This panel will examine the over-arching considerations in undertaking the actual development of such a cable system, planning for future uses and benefits of such a system, and exploring approaches to the effective involvement of key stakeholders in implementing such a project.

Power Generation & Management – I

Geothermal: Building to Utility Scale in Hawai‘i & Other Island Communities

Chair and Moderator: Guy Toyama, Friends of NELHA (Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawai‘i Authority)

Geothermal heat is considered one the most energy efficient, environmentally clean, and cost effective systems for electricity production and temperature control. Unlike solar and wind energy, geothermal energy is always available, 24/7 and 365 days a year and the technology is proven and has been used since the Roman Empire. If geothermal energy has so many advantages, why is its use not more widespread? This panel on Geothermal Energy has gathered experts from the industry to provide insights into geothermal development in the Asia Pacific region. The program will highlight geothermal projects, technologies, policies and development and will encourage interaction and discussion about government policies, projects developed and in development, market potential and the challenges/opportunities for a developer.

Regulating Myths with Math and Motivation: Energizing Energy Efficiency in Hawai‘i

Chair and Moderator: H. Ray Starling, SAIC

The Hawai‘i Clean Energy Initiative hopes to meet 70% of the state’s energy needs through energy efficiency and renewable energy by 2030. There is a need to prioritize investments in efficiency over renewables, expand financial analyses to include benefits beyond lower utility bills, and use better metrics when approving expense-reducing capital projects. This fast-paced session will explore all of these concepts and more in the context of innovative, ratepayer-funded educational programs currently being delivered by Hawai‘i Energy with the help of the Efficiency Sales Professional Institute.

Inside the Test Bed - Innovative Clean Energy Solutions for Island Communities

Chair: Ken Kelly, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)
Moderator: Mary Werner, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

Islands are often highly dependent on fossil fuels with economies suffering from volatile oil prices. Islands are also commonly blessed with abundant renewable resources that could serve as the source of energy to meet the local needs. As a result, islands serve as ideal places to showcase the potential of renewable energy at scale and innovative energy efficiency development and deployment.

This special keynote panel will provide case studies, success stories, and lessons learned from real-world efforts taking place across the pacific. The presenters will address policy, technology, and financial challenges and resulting innovative solutions being deployed in various island nations. Presenters include leaders from industry as well as key policy makers leading these efforts
