Rich Barone, Director of Customer Resources & Markets at Hawaiian Electric chats to Clarion Energy at this year’s DISTRIBUTECH 2020 about the unique challenges the utility has faced and overcome in developing a client-sited, dispatchable resource value model in the face of the state’s ambitious goal to transition to 100% renewable energy by 2045.

More than half of the state’s capacity is expected to be sourced from customer-sited, dispatchable renewable generation assets, which promises improved grid support services, but Hawaiian Electric is also facing expected growth in load demand thanks to the electrification of transport in the state.

See how a leading utility in the energy transition is preparing for a renewables-powered, decarbonised future.
