Energy in Hawaii

Hawaii's geographical isolation has made it that much more critical that the state develop renewable energy technologies and wean itself off expensive fossil fuels for transportation and electricity. The Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative, a partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy and the State of Hawaii formed in 2008, "aims to transform Hawaii into a world model for energy independence and sustainability." The goal is to by 2030 improve energy efficiency by 30 percent and produce 40 percent of the needed energy from renewable sources.
