SLIM partnered with HNEI to deliver a Smart Grid Energy Efficiency Training and Internship Program in 2012. The combined Smart Grid/HESP training program provided students with training in energy efficiency, building science, and smart grids. Participants gained hands-on experience using state of the art building performance equipment to conduct energy audits and develop an understanding of appropriate technologies and strategies for improved energy performance in Hawaii. It prepared students to take the nationally recognized RESNET Home Energy Survey Professional test. Following the training, students began an internship with the Maui Smart Grid Project and put their skills into action by conducting energy audits on local Maui homes.
