Eighty-five percent of all of the food consumed in Hawai'i is grown outside of the state. Revitalization of the agricultural industry through certification programs will offer both technical and hands-on learning, improve production efficiency, and share new marketing strategies needed to ensure the economic viability of food production and sustainability in Hawaiʻi.
The challenges faced by the alternative energy sector are: the diversity and number of employers, many of them small; ever changing technologies; and needs for training and coordination. The most significant state energy efforts are found in the Hawaiʻi Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI). HCEI outlines an aggressive goal of 70% clean energy for the state by 2030. This initiative requires the acceleration of workforce development in multiple green sectors.
