Energy Quote

The state's combination of abundant renewable resources, high fuel prices, limited geographic area, and recognized expertise in hydrogen technology R&D, makes it an ideal location to lead the state's transition to a renewable energy-to-hydrogen economy. By attracting considerable investments of capital and expertise to Hawaii, we will be investing wisely for our future needs.

Smart Grid

Smart Grid attempts to predict and intelligently respond to the behaviour and actions of all electric power users connected by adding monitoring, analysis, control, and communication capabilities to the national electrical delivery system. It aims to maximize the throughput of the system while reducing the energy consumption. The Smart Grid will allow utilities to move electricity around the system as efficiency and economically as possible. It will also allow the homeowner and business to useelectricity as economically as possible.

With smart grid, it is possible to employ tactics for improved efficiency:

  •  smart meters,
  • dynamic pricing,
  • smart thermostats and smart appliances,
  • automated control of equipment,
  • real-time and next day energy information feedback to electricity users,
  • usage by appliance data, and
  • scheduling and control of loads such as electric vehicle chargers, home area networks (HANs), and others.
