The Hawaii State Energy Office's Renewable EnerGIS map provides a large amount of information on renewable energy production and potential in Hawaii. The interactive map includes:

  • Identified warm springs, areas of warm ground water, and high geothermal potential
  • Geothermal wells
  • Hydroelectric sites
  • Estimated solar resource
  • Estimated ocean wave energy resource
  • Wind power density at 50 meters

Other layers include information on volcanic rifts and calderas, property parcels, agricultural land, annual rainfall, whale sanctuaries, ocean bathymetry, and the differences between shallow and deep ocean temperatures.

Note: to use the interactive map you must have the Microsoft Silverlight Plug-In installed and enabled.
