Hawaii To Host 2010 Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo
High-level speakers, workshops, exhibitions and networking focus on the transformation to a clean energy economy in Hawai‚Äėi and beyond
The Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo will be held August 30-September 2 at the Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawaii. Last year, approximately 800 energy industry representatives participated in the first Asia-Pacific Clean Energy Summit representing at least 14 countries and territories.
‚ÄúThe Hawai‚Äėi Clean Energy Initiative partnership between the State of Hawai‚Äėi and U.S. Department of Energy was a year old when we held the first energy summit and expo last year,‚ÄĚ said Governor Linda Lingle. ‚ÄúThis year, we look forward to discussing our state‚Äôs tremendous progress to move Hawai‚Äėi toward our goal of 70 percent clean energy by 2030, including renewable energy projects currently underway, new energy efficiency programs and movement toward a new regulatory framework.‚ÄĚ
This year, special breakout sessions will highlight energy efficiency, solar, wind, biofuels, geothermal, ocean energy, energy policy, and investment in renewable energy projects. Additionally, participants will learn about the status of development, economics, and competition of renewable energy projects in the global economy and will be provided with an update on Hawai‚Äėi‚Äôs Clean Energy Initiative.
