Hawaii's Climate Action Contribution

About Hawaii's Climate Efforts

Hawai’i’s energy paradigm of 100% renewable energy is based on the following five principles: (1) diversifying Hawaiʻi’s energy portfolio; (2) connecting and modernizing its grids; (3) balancing technical, economic, environmental, and cultural considerations; (4) leveraging Hawaiʻi’s position as an innovation test bed; and (5) creating an efficient marketplace that benefits producers and consumers. In adapting to climate change, Hawaiʻi
seeks to integrate climate change considerations into existing systems as well as develop new solutions. Hawaiʻi continues to push forward on mitigation and adaptation solutions, including during the 2017 legislative session, where it passed laws creating a green fund for the University of Hawaiʻi to finance and track energy efficiency improvements, adopting the latest building codes, and signing into law its commitment to the Paris Agreement through its newly established Climate Commission.
