HEPF sponsored Dr. Beverly Scott to present the keynote speech at the Hawaii Climate Conference (Hā O Ke Kai) on January 14, 2019. Over 200 people attended the conference from the public, private, and government sectors. Dr. Scott gave an inspiring speech on how addressing climate change is fundamentally about community building, focusing on people, communities, and outcomes. She noted Hawaii’s leadership in tackling climate change through our 100% renewable energy, carbon neutrality, and clean transportation sector goals.  Following the conference, Dr. Scott met with Forum members and other energy stakeholders. A big mahalo to Dr. Scott for sharing her knowledge with Hawaii and a hui hou!
