Okinawa Prefecture Consignment (Okinawa Hawaii Clean Energy Partnership Promotion Project)

"Okinawa Prefecture, in 2010, signed the “Memorandum of Cooperation Regarding the Hawai'i Okinawa Partnership on Clean and Efficient Energy Development and Deployment” (renewed in 2015, completed in 2020) which was also signed by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the State of Hawai’i. Based on the background of the cooperative relationship and the history of exchanges between the State of Hawai’i and Okinawa Prefecture, in May 2021, the State of Hawai’i and Okinawa Prefecture signed the “Memorandum of Cooperation Regarding the Hawai’i Okinawa Partnership on Clean Energy” and will work together to realize sustainable island societies. As one effort, we will hold workshops on the theme of clean energy in an online format" ~Okinawa Prefecture HP.
