Abstract: "Unsolicited research proposal submitted to the National Science Foundation."
"In accordance with the U.S. Department of Energy programs, the State of Hawaii Department of Planning and Economic Development proposes a planning project which will develop realistic scenarios for the development and commercialization of geothermal energy resources in Hawaii. The preliminary electric and direct-use scenarios developed by DOE regional contractors, SAl and SOC, will be used as a foundation for further refinement. These realistic scenarios will be developed in conjunction with other State and County agencies, private industry and community groups to insure that the resulting development program will reflect local aspirations. The scenarios will assist in identifying the barriers and time contraints to th e aspired development. Mechanisms will be established to review, update and monitor progress. Support to the Pacific Region Team and its Federal Commercialization Plan will be provided.
The results of the proposed project will include lists of recommended State, Federal and local actions to be pursued to realize the goal of early commercialization of geothermal resources in Hawaii. The State Geothermal Advisory Council will provide input in guiding the development of such action plans."
