Energy conference to be livestreamed

The Hawaii Energy Conference, originally set for March 18-19 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, has been rescheduled as a livestream event set for July 30.

A discussion on how the energy sector can and should respond to current challenges by creating a “just” electrical grid will be held, a news release said. Amid racial and economic inequalities, highlighted even more by the COVID-19 pandemic and protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of police, the panel will discuss strategies that policymakers and regulators can employ to benefit broad swaths of society.

The event is sponsored by the Maui Economic Development Board and supported by the county Office of Economic Development. Speakers will be announced later.

Admission to the three-hour event will be free.
