Hawaii Tribune-Herald: The Future of Hydrogen: Researchers at Puu Waawaa Ranch Explore Energy Solutions

Jun 30, 2019

Tucked among the old-time paniolo ranches in North Kona is a cutting-edge ranch of a different kind.

The Puu Waawaa energy ranch, the brainchild of visionary video-game developer and entrepreneur Henk Rogers, is an off-grid laboratory devoted to testing and developing renewable energy systems.

Rogers, the founder of the Blue Planet Foundation, is pushing to make the state’s energy use 100% renewable by 2045, ending the state’s reliance on fossil fuels that Rogers says is acidifying the ocean and killing the coral reef.
