Alm also noted at a recent energy forum that the state has to come up with a portfolio of energy resources, including imported liquefied natural gas, to stabilize price risk.
Coincidentally, the future of renewable energy development in Hawaii happens to be the topic of Colorado-based Energy Utility Consultants Inc.’s conference from Nov. 14-16 at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa.
Energy Utility Consultants provides conferences, seminars and workshops for the energy industry.
The first day of the conference will focus on energy efficiency and distributed generation for commercial buildings. The remaining two days aim to provide developers, landowners, regulators and other energy professionals with an opportunity to better understand renewable energy development in Hawaii.
Additionally, energy industry leaders will be able to explore issues in energy development, including financing, permitting and integration of projects.
The conference is being sponsored by Yamamoto & Settle, a Honolulu-based energy law firm, California-based Champlin/GEI Wind Holdings LLC and the Hawaii PV Coalition.
