Hawaii, where ground transportation accounts for about 24 percent of the state’s fossil fuel consumption, has vowed to switch to completely renewable fuel sources by 2045, a commitment that seeks to ensure a resilient future for the island communities.

The proclamations signed at an event hosted by Hōkūleʻa, the Polynesian Voyaging Society, underscore the need for innovation by local governments and businesses in combating climate change and steering away from fossil fuels, writes Green Matters.

Hawaii, currently meeting 26 percent of its energy demands with renewables, has taken a series of steps towards a green future, including the bold move to agree to the Paris Climate Accord even after President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the agreement, notes Clean Technica
