It was the largest one-year increase since the company began tracking solar capacity in 2005. There are now an estimated 3.5 million solar panels producing electricity on the company&#8217;s five grids.</p> <p> In addition, nearly 3,500 new systems across Oahu, Hawaii Island and Maui County were completed, supporting the company&#8217;s drive to reach the state&#8217;s next milestone of 30 percent renewable energy by the end of 2020.</p> <p> Installation of residential rooftop solar systems used by Hawaiian Electric customers increased 4.6 percent in 2019 from 2018, and Hawaii continues to lead the nation in rooftop solar adoption. </p> <p> Year-end figures show that 19 percent of residential customers in Hawaiian Electric&#8217;s five-island service territory are using rooftop solar, up from 18 percent in 2018.</p> <p> Hawaii&#8217;s percentage of residential customers with rooftop solar is more than double that of California, which is second at 6.6 percent; Arizona is third at 5.5 percent; Rhode Island and Guam, both fourth at 4 percent; and Utah at 3.6 percent, according to an analysis of 2018 data by the Smart Electric Power Alliance.</p> <p>Residential rooftop solar systems installed on Oahu, Hawaii Island, Maui, Molokai and Lanai rose to 77,801 in 2019 from 74,331 in 2018, up 4.6 percent. </p> <p>Residential systems 2018 2019<br> Oahu 53,222 19% 20%<br> Maui County 11,956 19% 19%<br> Hawaii Island 12,623 16% 17%<br> Consolidated 77,801 18% 19%</p> <p>Including commercial and grid-scale units, there are now 81,783 solar systems online, capable of producing 902 megawatts. </p> <p>&#8220;The numbers show the adoption of residential rooftop solar remains strong, increasing year after year across all of our islands,&#8221; said Shelee Kimura, Hawaiian Electric senior vice president of customer service. &#8220;Rooftop solar is a critical piece of the renewable mix, and our plans call for tripling the amount already installed to help move the state toward a clean energy future.&#8221;</p> <p>On Oahu, 37 percent of single-family homes now have rooftop solar; on Hawaii Island, 21 percent; in Maui County, 27 percent.</p> <p>In addition, three solar arrays built by Clearway Energy Group totaling 110 megawatts and Hawaiian Electric&#8217;s West Loch solar array producing 20 megawatts came online on Oahu in 2019.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com/energy/solar-power-capacity-jumped-21-percent-last-year/">Solar power capacity jumped 21 percent last year</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com">Hawaii Tech</a>.</p> UH scientist says Venus may be volcanically active https://www.hawaiitech.com/science/uh-scientist-says-venus-may-be-volcanically-active/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=uh-scientist-says-venus-may-be-volcanically-active Hawaii Tech urn:uuid:191809dc-70d6-2cc2-74c2-8b4d89f018b8 Thu, 16 Jan 2020 17:13:25 -1000 <p>A University of Hawaii at Mānoa planetary scientistco-authored a study published this week in Science Advances that shows lava flows on Venus may be only a few years old, suggesting that Venus could be volcanically active today—making it the only planet in our solar system, other than Earth, with recent eruptions.  David Trang of UH Mānoa conducted the [&#8230;]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com/science/uh-scientist-says-venus-may-be-volcanically-active/">UH scientist says Venus may be volcanically active</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com">Hawaii Tech</a>.</p> <p>A University of Hawaii at Mānoa planetary scientistco-authored a study published this week in <a href="https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/1/eaax7445">Science Advances</a> that shows lava flows on Venus may be only a few years old, suggesting that Venus could be volcanically active today—making it the only planet in our solar system, other than Earth, with recent eruptions. </p> <p><a href="https://www.higp.hawaii.edu/cgi-directory/directory.cgi?func=disp&amp;searchname=DavidTrang">David Trang</a> of UH Mānoa conducted the study with Justin Filiberto, the study’s lead author and Universities Space Research Association (USRA) staff scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute.</p> <p>&#8220;If Venus is indeed active today, it would make a great place to visit to better understand the interiors of planets,&#8221; said Filiberto. &#8220;For example, we could study how planets cool and why the Earth and Venus have active volcanism, but Mars does not. Future missions should be able to see these flows and changes in the surface and provide concrete evidence of its activity.&#8221;</p> <p>Radar imaging from NASA’s Magellan spacecraft in the early 1990s revealed Venus, Earth’s neighboring planet, to be a world of volcanoes and extensive lava flows. In the 2000s, the European Space Agency’s Venus Express orbiter shed new light on volcanism on Venus by measuring the amount of infrared light emitted from part of Venus’ surface during its nighttime. These new data allowed scientists to identify fresh versus altered lava flows on the surface of Venus. However, until recently, the ages of lava eruptions and volcanoes on Venus were not well known because the alteration rate of fresh lava was not well identified.</p> <p>Trang, a researcher in the UH Mānoa<a href="http://www.soest.hawaii.edu/"> School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology</a>’s<a href="https://www.higp.hawaii.edu/"> Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology</a>, Filiberto and co-authors, recreated Venus’ hot caustic atmosphere in the laboratory to investigate how the observed Venusian minerals react and change over time. Their experimental results showed that once erupted onto the surface, an abundant mineral in basalt—olivine—reacts rapidly with the atmosphere and within weeks becomes coated with the iron oxide minerals magnetite and hematite. </p> <p>Trang&#8217;s efforts included comparing laboratory results to the results from spacecraft data. They further found that the Venus Express observations of this change in mineralogy would only take a few years to occur. Thus, the new results by Filiberto and coauthors suggest that these lava flows on Venus are very young, which implies that Venus does indeed have active volcanoes.</p> <p>“It has been decades since the last space mission to explore the surface of Venus and hopefully our findings will persuade the community that we need to go back to further investigate our dynamic neighbor,” said Trang.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com/science/uh-scientist-says-venus-may-be-volcanically-active/">UH scientist says Venus may be volcanically active</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com">Hawaii Tech</a>.</p> Gallery: Grow with Google in Kaimuki https://www.hawaiitech.com/events/gallery-grow-with-google-in-kaimuki/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=gallery-grow-with-google-in-kaimuki Hawaii Tech urn:uuid:b592dd8e-3314-8301-af1a-bb60ce967066 Thu, 16 Jan 2020 15:40:44 -1000 <p>Visiting Google presenters and coaches hosted free ‘Grow with Google’ workshops today at Kaimuki Public Library, with onsite instruction provided to local jobseekers, small business, and nonprofit leaders on integral digital skills necessary in today’s business environment.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com/events/gallery-grow-with-google-in-kaimuki/">Gallery: Grow with Google in Kaimuki</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com">Hawaii Tech</a>.</p> <p>Visiting Google presenters and coaches hosted free ‘Grow with Google’ workshops today at Kaimuki Public Library, with onsite instruction provided to local jobseekers, small business, and nonprofit leaders on integral digital skills necessary in today’s business environment.

They recently co-authored <a href="https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/5/12/eaax6720.abstract">a study in <em>Science Advances</em></a> that investigated the characteristic surface motion that occurs in the weeks to months to years after very large earthquakes, combining Global Positioning System (<abbr>GPS</abbr>) measurements with a new numerical modeling method.</p> <p>The GPS instruments are similar to but much more precise than those in mobile phones or automobile satellite navigation systems. </p> <p>Weiss, <abbr>SOEST</abbr> researcher James Foster, graduate student Jonathan Avery, and international colleagues used a network consisting of hundreds of permanent <abbr>GPS</abbr> stations installed across South America—from the Chilean coastline in the west to the rainforests of Brazil in the east—to measure horizontal and vertical ground motions as small as a few millimeters per year. Studying these motions can reveal detailed information about numerous processes ranging from the forces responsible for mountain building over long timescales, the short-term behavior of rocks in response to large, earthquake-induced changes in stress, and even seasonal cycles of rainfall in the Amazon basin.</p> <p><strong>Chilean earthquake provides opportunity for investigation</strong></p> <p>The team analyzed continuously recorded&nbsp;<abbr>GPS</abbr>&nbsp;data from after the 2010 magnitude 8.8 Maule earthquake in Chile, which was the largest event to occur in that region in 50 years, using a novel geophysical data inversion technique. Their modeling approach used surface motion measurements from&nbsp;<abbr>GPS</abbr>&nbsp;data to reveal details of the physical properties of the rock in the crust and mantle, and how it responded to the stresses generated by the earthquake.</p> <p>The newly published results of their study confirm that the combination of a dense network of&nbsp;<abbr>GPS</abbr>&nbsp;sites with the new inversion algorithm can significantly increase our knowledge of subduction zone and deep crustal and upper mantle structure, which ultimately controls the distribution and frequency of large earthquakes and volcanic activity.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com/science/earthquake-gps-algorithm/">UH scientists propose new tools to understand, predict large earthquakes</a>

professionals — but the company plans to double the size of its Arizona team.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow"

href="https://www.hawaiitech.com">Hawaii Tech</a>.</p> <p>Hawaiian Airlines yesterday celebrated the opening of an Information Technology Center in Arizona, the carrier’s largest office outside Hawaii. The 15,000-square-foot center in Tempe will house 60 employees, nearly 30 percent of the company&#8217;s team of 220 IT professionals — but the company plans to double the size of its Arizona team.</p> <p>With the opening of the new facility, Hawaiian Airlines tells HawaiiTech.com that a handful of employees relocated from Honolulu to Arizona.</p> <p>The company says the new space increases its ability to hire IT professionals across the U.S. mainland, and to seek specific skillsets, such as expertise in technologies like MongoDB and Mulesoft. But the expanded team &#8220;complements&#8221; its business-facing IT functions and intra-company operations that remain headquartered in Honolulu.</p> <p>&#8220;As of today, 6,800 of Hawaiian’s 7,400 employees are proudly based in Hawaii,&#8221; the company told HawaiiTech.com. &#8220;We will continue to invest in our infrastructure and staffing in Hawaii while maintaining our strong economic impact as the hometown carrier.&#8221;</p> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i0.wp.com/s3.amazonaws.com/cms.ipressroom.com/249/files/20200/5e1394912cfac2663ca76913_Tempe_Group/Tempe_Group_18627371-2bed-4803-af1b-7d489800f077-prv.jpg?w=696&#038;ssl=1" alt="Hawaiian IT Center" data-recalc-dims="1"/><figcaption> From left: Kevin Sullivan, executive vice president of sales and client services for the Arizona Commerce Authority, Peter Ingram, Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO, Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell, and John Jacobi, senior vice president for Information Technology at Hawaiian Airlines, at the dedication ceremony for the airline&#8217;s new IT center in Tempe, Ariz. </figcaption></figure> <p>After a multi-state search, Hawaiian Airlines chose Tempe, Ariz., in part because it&#8217;s daily nonstop service to Phoenix, which it has offered since October 2002 and has served as a regional hub for the southwestern U.S.</p> <p>&#8220;The route, operated by our long-haul Airbus A330, continues to perform well,&#8221; a Hawaiian Airlines spokesman said. &#8220;We carried more than 172,000 passengers between HNL and PHX in 2019.&#8221;</p> <p>Hawaiian Airlines operated a temporary IT office in Arizona last year prior to moving into the new facility two months ago. The carrier says it plans to recruit employees through partnerships with Arizona State University and other local educational institutions to offer IT internships and recruit positions ranging from software engineers and architects to database managers and business analysts.</p> <p>Arizona officials were elated to have Hawaiian Airlines&#8217; support.</p> <p> “This new Hawaiian Airlines technology center is another significant addition to Arizona’s tech sector, which is growing at a rate 40 percent faster than the rest of the country,” said Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey in a press release.</p> <p>“We’re so honored that&#8230; Hawaiian Airlines chose Tempe for its new IT center,&#8221; Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell added. &#8220;It’s a testament to the terrific access to talent and competitive cost of living in our community. We’re pleased to welcome them and can’t think of a better place for these excellent tech jobs to land!”</p> <p>Sandra Watson, Arizona Commerce Authority president and CEO, said: “Hawaiian Airlines’ selection of Tempe for its new IT operation demonstrates the high quality of tech talent and pro-business climate our state provides to growing companies. We thank Hawaiian Airlines for investing in Arizona and creating new jobs for our residents.”</p> <p>The facility opening ceremony included a Hawaiian blessing.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image"><img src="https://i1.wp.com/s3.amazonaws.com/cms.ipressroom.com/249/files/20200/5e13949e2cfac20473a80ac1_Maile_Tempe/Maile_Tempe_dc0414bd-588c-43c4-a410-002bbe5dd867-prv.jpg?w=696&#038;ssl=1" alt="Hawaiian IT Maile Lei" data-recalc-dims="1"/><figcaption> From left: John Jacobi, senior vice president for IT at Hawaiian Airlines, joined Matthew Chimbos, managing director of IT at Hawaiian, in untying a maile lei to dedicate the carrier&#8217;s new IT center in Tempe, Ariz.  </figcaption></figure> <p>“We appreciate the warm welcome we have received throughout Arizona in support of our IT center, and we are delighted to grow our business in a state we have enjoyed serving with nonstop flights to Hawaii for nearly two decades,” Hawaiian Airlines president and CEO Peter Ingram said in its press release. &#8220;Our Tempe office will augment the core work of our Honolulu team to advance our IT systems across departments so we may continue to deliver the greatest value to our guests.&#8221;</p> <p><strong>About Hawaiian Airlines</strong></p> <p> Now in its 91st year of continuous service, Hawaiian is Hawaii’s biggest and longest-serving airline. Hawaiian offers nonstop service to Hawaii from more U.S. gateway cities than any other airline, along with service from Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti. Hawaiian also provides, on average, more than 170 jet flights daily between the Hawaiian Islands, and over 260 daily flights system-wide.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com/business/hawaiian-airlines-opens-mainland-it-center/">Hawaiian Airlines opens Mainland IT center</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.hawaiitech.com">Hawaii Tech</a>.</p>
