Two state departments are developing an electronic permitting system for clean-energy projects as part of the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative.

The Hawaii Department of Health is joining with the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism to create a system to organize and analyze data from thousands of annual environmental permits, licenses, reports and reviews that usually are recorded on paper.

DBEDT will allocate $375,000 in federal stimulus money as part of the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative, whose goal is to reduce energy demand and replace oil and coal energy with renewable resources.

Windsor Solutions, based in Portland, Ore., has the contract for project. The first phase is expected to be completed within one year.
