Growing Sustainable Industries for Hawaii: NELHA Programs and Prospects
Brian Goldstein, President, Kona Bay Marine Resources
Jeff Smith, Executive Director, Natural Energy Lab of Hawaii Authority (NELHA)
David Lassner, Chief Information Officer, University of Hawaii

The Natural Energy Lab of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) is a state agency that operates a unique and innovative ocean science and technology park in Kailua-Kona on the island of Hawaii. NELHA aims to develop and diversify the Hawaii economy by providing resources and facilities for energy and ocean-related research, education, and commercial activities in an environmentally sound and culturally sensitive manner. Situated at Keahole Point near Kona on the Big Island, NELHA provides access to a wide range of assets, most uniquely, a dual temperature seawater system that is being applied in a number of creative ways to support research, business and education.

This month's High Tech Hawaii will feature a conversation with NELHA Executive Director Jeff Smith and entreprenuer Brian Goldstein, who is also a leader in Hawaii's High Tech community. They will describe what NELHA is, what resources are available, what's going on there today, and what the prospects are for the future.

During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 from Oahu or 1-800-342-7949 (neighbor islands) or sent by email to hth@hawaii.edu.
