Building local partnerships to invest in clean energy and sustainability projects as a part of HEI’s strategy to be a catalyst for a better Hawai‘i

Our mission is to accelerate Hawai‘i’s sustainability goals in a socially, economically and environmentally friendly way. We do this by investing local capital in long-term, sustainable infrastructure across the Hawaiian Islands.

We believe that investing in sustainable infrastructure is key in tackling three central challenges facing the Hawai‘i community: dependence on imported oil, inequitable access to clean technology solutions, and the risk of climate change.


As a tier-one subsidiary of Hawaiian Electric Industries, our mission provides a broad investment strategy that expands well beyond the energy sector.
