Successful Hawaii Seminar Focuses on Storage and Exceeds Expectations

Posted: 06–22-10

A seminar (Hawaii Energy Storage) sponsored by DOE and Sandia Laboratories (Sandia) with support from the County of Maui, Univ. of HI Maui College, Hawaiian Electric Co. & its subsidiaries, and developers Castle & Cooke, was conducted at Maui College on June 16, 2010.

Facilitated by Jennifer Stinebaugh, analyst for Sandia’s Energy Systems Dept, the Seminar Agenda featured presentations by experts from Sandia’s Energy Storage Systems Research Program (ESS) on storage issues and case studies.

The Sandians focused on both the pro’s and con’s of energy storage as a stabilizer in the naturally fluctuating power produced by renewable resources. Increasingly gaining support as a means of helping to reduce world-wide reliance on fossil fuels for producing grid-related electricity, energy storage is regarded by the County of Maui as one of the key factors in its efforts to achieve 95% reliance on renewable energy by 2020.

Expecting approximately 65 attendees, the sponsors were pleased to host more than 150 people that included not only interested individuals but also representatives from institutions and business firms, all from within the Hawaii area.
