“There was a clear message of the need for engagement and empowerment in our communities at the 2023 Hawaii Energy Conference. Beginning with our first keynote speaker, youth climate and disability activist Daphne Frias, the conversation addressed equity and inclusion. Many of the panelists in the different energy sectors acknowledged the importance of all voices being heard and included in our energy solutions. This is the most holistic way of moving forward to achieve our goals.”
HEC Program Committee Chair; Executive Director and COO, Hawaii Island Economic Development Board (HIEDB); and President, Hawaii Leeward Planning
“The Hawaii Energy Conference is more important than ever. It is clear that meeting in-person is vital to building trust while discussing issues and solving challenges. Permitting, equity, community engagement, and the general pace of reaching our sustainable goals were key concerns discussed this year, and so much more. The responsibility of our energy transition falls on each one of us.”

“The Hawaii Energy Conference provides a vital service to our state by convening policymakers and stakeholders to discuss our energy future. As we all work together to help Hawaii stabilize and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important to embrace innovative technology, policies and regulation within the renewable energy sector, which will help protect our natural environment, shielding our island state from volatile world fossil fuel markets, strengthening its overall resilience, and aid in its economic recovery.”
President of Ulupono Initiative
“The two-day Hawaii Energy Conference was a great place to get together with the energy community. The event has progressed from the first Maui Energy conference I attended, with the implementation of new energy projects across the state. It provided a forum for best-practice sharing, with excellence in the application of environmental sustainability strategies, partnerships, performance, and governance.”
