Hawaii Clean Fleets Certification

Transportation accounts for more than 60% of the energy consumed in Hawaii. While air transportation uses the largest portion; truck, buses, and cars consume roughly 23%. Using renewable fuels and fuel efficiency measure will help reduce Hawaii’s dependence on imported fossil fuels.

Alternative fuels and efficient driving practices will contribute to a more sustainable future for Hawaii’s transportation industry as we move towards a 100% clean energy economy.
