Hawaii utilities competitive acquisition of integrated solar-plus-storage resources

Served the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission as Independent Observer for two procurements by two Hawaiian utilities for new variable, dispatchable renewable generation on the islands of Oahu and Hawaii: the first to obtain renewable energy and energy storage to replace the largest generator in the Hawaiian Islands, the second to obtain "grid services" from customer-sited distributed energy resources—such as residential rooftop solar and energy storage—to compete against utility-scale projects. Monitored every phase of the request for proposal (RFP) process, including (a) design of the RFP; (b) issuance of the RFP; (c) bid receipt and qualification; (d) evaluation and selection of the shortlist; (e) evaluation and selection of the final award group; and (f) contract negotiations. The highly successful procurement process resulted in record-low prices for the state.
