Hawaiian Airlines: Energy performance

Energy Performance
Cumulative (vs. Baseline)9%
Annual (2021)3%

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Hawaiian Airline's portfolio consists of 8 buildings and 600 thousand square feet. Partner has improved energy performance by 8% from a 2019 baseline, making progress towards a goal of 20% by 2026.  Energy savings have been primarily achieved by implementing lighting retrofits at the three largest properties and installing HVAC controls at two of the largest properties.  With modern buildings at Hawaiian Airline's primary locations, they have turned our focus toward influencing behavior to drive further energy savings as well as partnering with building owners and airports that prioritize sustainability in their operations to further reduce consumption. 


Looking at the percent improvement in energy performance across all properties can provide insight into how an organization is saving energy. Hawaiian Airlines has achieved energy performance improvement of greater than 15% at 3 of its properties. There are 2 properties that have experienced an increase in Source EUI.  These properties have been targeted for future energy efficiency improvements.


Property-level energy performance metrics, including EUI and percent improvement to date, are critical to track progress over time and identify opportunities for additional energy savings. Hawaiian Airlines' portfolio consists of properties with a wide range of baseline EUI values, most of which are from 50 to 250 kBtu/sq. ft. The majority of properties have shown energy improvement since 2019. The properties located near or below the 0% axis may present good opportunities for further savings.
