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.
Areas of Review
Applications to the Hawaii Clean Fleets Certification Program will be assessed in two key areas, fuels and efficiency methods as shown below for a one-year period of time from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015.
