Six member organizations have joined to create the newly formed Distributed
Distributed Energy Resources Council members’ behind-the-meter technologies and solutions are integral to the sustainable development of the electricity sector in Hawaii. With the formation of DERC Hawaii, member organizations aim to work with all stakeholders willing to collaboratively achieve common goals.
“We are pleased to see the formation of this collaboration platform for distributed energy technologies in Hawaii,” said Dawn Lippert, Director of the Energy Excelerator, a program of the Pacific International Center for High Technology Research that funds seed-stage and growth-stage startups with compelling and immediate applications in Hawaii. “The utility landscape is changing and we need new technology companies at the table in order to help our utilities transform to a clean energy future. We hope DERC will work with policy makers, utilities and regulators to pave the way for new jobs, innovation and collaboration in Hawaii’s energy sector.”
The organization plans to actively participate in proceedings at the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission as well as monitor and engage in relevant legislative opportunities.
DERC Hawaii currently has a candidate selection process underway to identify an Executive Director. For more information please contact [email protected].
