Energy Policy & Planning Group


Hawai`i sits on the precipice of an energy revolution. With plentiful and increasingly competitive renewable wind and solar energy, combined with the nation’s highest electricity prices and generous subsidies, Hawai`i  is poised to become 100% renewable by 2045.


Hawai`i’s green energy transformation brings new opportunities and challenges. How we manage the transition could serve as a model for the rest of the world. With the right policies, the State could eliminate most greenhouse gas emissions while reducing energy costs and becoming an innovation hub for renewable energy integration technologies.


The Energy Policy & Planning group at UHERO uses data analysis together with economic, engineering, and planning models to evaluate the consequences of current and prospective policies governing Hawaii’s energy transformation to facilitate clear-headed policy decisions surrounding renewable energy.
