The energy infrastructure of Hawai`i is more dependent on petroleum than any other state`s. Denise Konan shares an analysis of the carbon intensity of Hawai`i`s commercial and residential activities. Her study indicates "greening" the visitor sector, utilities, transportation, and residential buildings does more than help our environment, it can cut the long-run power costs and strengthen our economy.

DENISE KONAN is a professor of economics and former chancellor of UHM. Konan heads the Energy and Greenhouse Gas Solutions of the UH Economic Research Organization, which monitors and models Hawaii`s energy, greenhouse gas emissions and economic activities. She has been an advisor to the World Bank and Council on Foreign Relations.

Funded in part by the Shunzo Sakamaki Extraordinary Lecture Endowment at the University of Hawai`i Foundation and the Hawai`i Energy Policy Forum`s Koaniani Fund at the Hawaii Community Foundation.
