Clean Energy Transformation
70% clean energy – 40% from renewable sources and 30% from efficiency, with a view towards 100% renewable energy by 2045
Clean energy paved the way for Hawai‘i’s Aloha+ Challenge sustainability goals, building on the 70% renewable energy target by 2030 set by the Hawai‘i Clean Energy Initiative in 2008. The State of Hawai‘i increased the ambition in 2015 by adopting the commitment to 100% renewable electricity by 2045 into state law, with the four Counties committing in 2017 to achieve 100% renewable energy in the transportation sector by 2045. The Aloha+ Challenge Dashboard measures Hawai‘i’s progress towards high-level clean energy goals.
