2 Outline of Talk Hawaii Energy Situation PACOM-UH-ONR and Energy Select UH Research Activities Grid Systems and Storage Hydrogen Ocean Energy Biofuels

3 Estimated US Energy Usage: 2010 Oil provides 37% of all primary energy Oil used for less than 1% of electricity generation Renewables provides ~ 8% of all primary energy Natural gas offers flexibility across energy sectors

4 Estimated HI Energy Usage: 2008 Oil provides 84% of all primary energy (vs 37% US) Oil provides 73% of electricity generation (vs 1% US) Renewables provides 8% of all primary energy Renewables for electricity ~10%

5 Electricity Production in Hawai‘i by Source, 2010


7 More Renewables than Demand but Grid Issues Limit use 1300MW 75MW 5MW 200MW Isolated grid systems with no interisland connections Significant transmission and distribution issues - sparse system, mountainous terrain. Intermittency of wind and solar and substantive difference between peak load and base load leads to curtailment of renewable energy sources Excellent test-bed for modern grid technologies

8 Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI) Rationale and Objectives Objectives  The State of Hawaii and US DOE launched HCEI in January 2008 to help transform Hawaii to a 70% clean energy economy by 2030 and reap economic and environmental benefits: Increasing Hawaii’s economic and energy security Fostering and demonstrating Hawaii’s innovation Developing Hawaii’s workforce of the future Becoming the clean energy model for the U.S. and the world Rationale  Hawaii is, by far, the most petroleum-dependent state in the U.S.  Hawaii is burdened with high energy prices that have dramatic and potentially devastating impacts on the State’s economy  Hawaii is blessed with excellent renewable energy resources and climate Hawaii The most petroleum-dependent state in the US is on track to increase its clean energy (efficiency and renewables) to 70% by 2030 and will have the greatest penetration of variable renewables on a grid in the US
