By News Release @ 3:38 PM :: 3944 Views :: Energy


News Release from US Department of Energy


In 2010, DOE announced its intent to prepare a PEIS for the Hawai'i Interisland Renewable Energy Program (HIREP): Wind (DOE/EIS-0459). In response to public scoping comments, as well as regulatory and policy developments since the scoping meetings, DOE proposes to broaden the range of energy efficiency and renewable energy activities and technologies to be analyzed in the PEIS and, accordingly, has renamed it the Hawai'i Clean Energy PEIS. DOE’s proposal involves the development of guidance to use in future funding decisions and other actions to support Hawai'i in achieving the goal established in the Hawai'i Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI) to meet 70% of the State’s energy needs by 2030 through energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Information on the Hawai'i Clean Energy PEIS is available on the PEIS website at


Comments on the Draft PEIS should be submitted by July 17, 2014:
