The Economics of Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Hawaii

Dr. Denise Konan, to speak at Hawaii Economic Association luncheon September 24, 2009.

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed legislation that would put a price on carbon. The State of Hawaii has committed to sharp reductions in carbon emissions, and the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative. Come hear the Director of UHERO’s EGGS project explain what this transition to clean energy means for Hawaii’s people, businesses, workers and visitors?
