Hawaii's Energy Future

This week on Insights, we'll track Hawaii's progress on the path to energy independence. Though we've been talking about alternative energy for decades, innovative projects by government, private and non-profit entities are currently underway. Join host Dan Boylan as he engages a group of experts in a conversation exploring how far we've come, where we're trying to go and what's taking so long in our quest for clean energy.

Guests include: Robbie Alm, Executive Vice President, Hawaiian Electric Company; Michael Hamnett, Co–Chair, Hawaii Energy Policy Forum and Executive Director of the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii; Hermina Morita, Chair of the State Public Utilities Commission; and Estrella Seese, Acting Energy Program Administrator, State Energy Office.

This conversation was recorded on May 5, 2011 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
