STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2087

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: S.B. No. 2563

 

 

 

Honorable Colleen Hanabusa

President of the Senate

Twenty-Fifth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2010

State of Hawaii

 

Madam:

 

Your Committee on Energy and Environment, to which was referred S.B. No. 2563 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO ENERGY EFFICIENCY,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose of this measure is to amends the lead by example goals of state energy efficiency to target thirty per cent energy efficiency by 2030.

 

Testimony in support of this measure was submitted by one private organization.

 

Written testimony presented to the Committee may be reviewed on the Legislature's website.

 

Your Committee finds that currently the goal of achieving alternate fuels standards requires the State to facilitate the development of alternate fuels and support attainment of a statewide alternate fuel standard of ten per cent of highway fuel by 2010, fifteen per cent by 2015, and twenty per cent by 2020.

 

Your Committee is strongly supportive of this measure, which is endorsed by the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative, which would continue and expand the State's commitment to achieving an alternative fuels standard of thirty per cent of highway fuel by 2030.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Energy and Environment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2563 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Energy and Environment,
