Scott Seu, the new President and CEO of Hawaiian Electric Company, will be the featured speaker at the Hawaiʻi Energy Conference on March 19.

The conference will take a deep dive into how electrification can be “beneficial” and what is required to design an equitable energy transition, according to the Maui Economic Development Board.

In  a “Conversation with Scott Seu,” Seu will share his views on the direction of Hawaiian Electric – including how the company will work to effectively modernize the electrical grid to meet the state’s 100 percent renewable energy portfolio standards by 2045 and the outreach necessary to balance the needs of a diverse customer base.

Presented by Maui Economic Development Board and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development, the 7th Annual Hawaiʻi Energy Conference will explore the theme “Electrification and Equity.”

The program includes keynote speakers, panel discussions and case studies.
