LAVA demonstrates ProjecTable 2.0 at HECO's Illumination Event at the Honolulu Convention Center to introduce attendees to the various tradeoffs in land use to take Hawaii to 100% renewable energy by 2045.

The ProjecTable 2.0 is system for displaying geospatial data layers over a 3D topography. In this particular instance, the data shown were scenarios with varying mixes of solar, wind and fossil fuels, and optimal locations for their deployment in Hawai'i to reach Hawai'i's renewable energy goals by 2045.

The system was co-designed by LAVA students, James Hutchinson, Ryan Theriot, Eva Morales, Nurit Kirshenbaum, and Kari Noe. ProjecTable 2.0 is twice the size of ProjecTable 1.0, which was initially developed for the Hawaii State Energy Office.

This project was funded in part by the Hawai'i State Energy Office, the Hawai'ian Electric Company, and the Department of Energy.
