HCEI Transportation Energy Analysis
The Hawaii State Energy Office convened energy and transportation stakeholders to assess and recommend transportation energy industry strategies and tactics to significantly reduce the consumption of petroleum products in Hawaii’s transportation sector. The International Council on Clean Transportation was contracted to provide underlying assessments, analysis, recommendations, and stakeholder engagement to support the development of a new energy plan for transportation under the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative.
Transportation Energy Analysis Stakeholder Meeting
The Hawaii State Energy Office held a meeting on June 17, 2015 to present an introductory overview of The International Council on Clean Transportation’s Transportation Energy Analysis Draft Report.
The Transportation Charrette is dedicated to establishing a comprehensive transportation plan for significantly reducing the consumption of petroleum products in Hawaii’s transportation sector.
A primary goal of this charrette is to develop a comprehensive plan for reducing the use of petroleum in ground transportation by 70%, or approximately 385 MGY by 2030.
The Transportation Charrette’s planning efforts will revolve around the following key strategies:
- Improve the efficiency of the standard vehicle fleet;
- Reduce the overall number of vehicle miles traveled;
- Expand the use of renewable fuels for transportation;
- Accelerate the deployment of electric vehicles and related infrastructure; and
- Reduce petroleum based fuels in the transportation section (ground, marine, and aviation).
The Transportation Charrette was initiated in July 2014 and will encompass a 6-12 month collaborative planning effort. The following agenda has been set:
- Assess transportation energy industry and strategy tactics;
- Evaluate and develop a short list of recommended tactics;
- Review transportation energy strategy and develop master list of tactics;
- Rank top 3-10 priority tactics with rationale, analysis, and other accompanying data;
- Assess and review existing Hawaii plans and associated budgets;
- Identify and assess impacts of policy drivers;
- Assess existing Hawaii plans to identify strategies for implementation; and
- Identify private and public funding/investment opportunities.
The Transportation Charrette plan will include recommendations that address:
- How the transportation plan should be retooled;
- Review best practices and case studies internationally;
- Review options;
- Establish a timeline and realistic expectations; and
- Present the planning, policy/regulatory, and funding requirements necessary to carry out next steps.
