Transportation accounts for almost two-thirds of our fossil fuel use. That's why moving Hawaii beyond oil also means cleaner transportation options. The road to 100% clean transportation starts now.
STCH is a program powered by Blue Planet that drives local efforts to reduce the use of imported petroleum in Hawaii’s transportation sector through education, outreach, and stakeholder engagement. STCH is part of a national network of nearly 100 coalitions that make up the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities program, tasked with accelerating solutions like alternative fuels, alternative modes of transportation, and vehicle efficiency.
Blue Planet recognizes the important role auto dealer associates play in the promotion and sales of electric vehicles (EV). Through the EV Expert Certification Program, salespeople are equipped with EV knowledge that allows them to provide the best EV buying experience for their customers.
Blue Planet conducts strategic communications and outreach campaigns to educate the public about clean transportation options including public transportation, bicycling, electric vehicles, and biodiesel. Programs like our EV ride-and-drives, the Oahu Commute Challenge, fleet workshops, and presentations are intended to begin to break down barriers and encourage adoption of adoption of more sustainable transportation options in Hawaii.
Blue Planet works with state legislators and other stakeholders to develop and implement policies that accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles, improve access to charging infrastructure, and boosting the number of people using alternative methods of transportation like public transit, walking, and biking (also known as "mode shifting"). Sign up to receive updates on proposed legislation and opportunities to testify on key clean transportation bills.
Blue Planet Foundation is a founding partner of Drive Electric Hawaii (DEH), a collaboration of the state’s best energy minds tasked with finding ways to accelerate clean transportation with electric vehicles powered by renewable energy. The partnership includes Blue Planet Foundation, along with representatives from the State and four counties, electrical utilities and the private sector. In 2016, we signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and agreed on a vision for powering ground transportation using 100% renewable energy.
