IGP Future Procurement Update

September 20, 2023

On September 19, 2023, Hawaiian Electric informed the Commission of necessary changes to the timing of the future Integrated Grid Plan Request for Proposals (“IGP RFP”) contemplated for 2024.

Request for Information for IGP Future Procurement - Update

June 30, 2023

On June 16, 2023, Hawaiian Electric issued a Request for Information (“RFI”) for potential renewable energy or storage projects on Oahu, Maui, or Hawaii Island that could be submitted to an RFP in 2024. Responses to this RFI will guide Hawaiian Electric’s future resource planning and procurement for grid-scale renewable energy systems and may be used by the Companies in determining what area(s) should be focused on for future transmission upgrades, including new interconnection facilities.

The Companies appreciate the responses received to date and are extending the period of time for stakeholders to submit responses to the RFI in hopes of receiving a wide array of responses. Interested parties are requested to complete the Project Questionnaire (see Appendix A) and submit to Hawaiian Electric by August 11, 2023.


Request for Information for IGP Future Procurement

June 16, 2023

Hawaiian Electric is seeking feedback through a Request for Information (“RFI”) regarding potential renewable energy or storage projects on Oahu, Maui, or Hawaii Island that could be submitted to an RFP in 2024.

Project developers are encouraged to submit comprehensive responses to this request as the information obtained from responses may assist in the development of the Company’s drafting and issuance of a future RFP to meet energy needs on Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii Island, as set forth in the Integrated Grid Plan. The Company’s Integrated Grid Plan has identified the need for a wide variety of generation and storage projects to swiftly decarbonize the electric grid and manage risks to affordability, resilience and reliability.

To create a viable energy marketplace, the Company will need to routinely conduct procurements and adjust program and pricing mechanisms, in a similar but more efficient manner to the procurement activities since 2017. The Company is seeking a wide variety of feedback on potential project development, the procurement process, interconnection, and transmission capacity. Responses to this RFI will guide Hawaiian Electric’s future resource planning and procurement for grid-scale renewable energy systems and may be used by the Company in determining what area(s) should be focused on for future transmission or subtransmission upgrades, including new interconnection facilities.

Interested parties are requested to complete the Project Questionnaire (see Appendix A) and submit to Hawaiian Electric by July 28, 2023. If additional information or clarification regarding the RFI, or the RFI process outlined in the document, is required, questions may be submitted to renewableacquisition@hawaiianelectric.com.
