Henne, Austin L.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis examines the costs and benefits of two onsite energy opportunities for Command Naval Region Hawaii (CNRH) and the surrounding region. The project analyzes a proposed 50-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) system on West Loch Peninsula in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the economic impacts of a proposed liquid natural gas (LNG)-import terminal on Waipu Peninsula in Pearl Harbor, using net present value (NPV) and cost benefit analysis. CNRH is considering collaboration with Hawaiian Electric Companies to pursue the proposed PV plant and the LNG terminal in order to meet Hawaiian Clean Energy Initiative requirements for producing 40% renewable energy by 2030. The goal of this project is to calculate the economic impacts an LNG-import terminal might have on solar PV and potential indirect impacts of pursuing both projects.
