Director for Generation Project Development
Jack Shriver is the director for generation project development at Hawaiian Electric.
We interviewed nine of the leaders at Hawaiian Electric including Jack Shriver, director for generation project development.
PUF: What's your position with this project?
Jack Shriver: I'm the director of generation project development, which means that any new power generation or utility scale energy storage project that's going to be owned and operated by Hawaiian Electric Company is executed by my division.
PUF: It wouldn't just be this project?
Jack Shriver: No.
PUF: So, you have a whole bunch of other things going on?
Jack Shriver: Yes. We have a portfolio of new generation projects and energy storage projects that we manage.
PUF: What did you do before this?
Jack Shriver: I've been doing this for about seven years. I was a submarine officer in the Navy. We have a lot of Navy guys in the utility industry. Here at Hawaiian Electric, our CEO Alan Oshima was a Navy lieutenant. Ron Cox, our senior vice president for operations, was a submarine officer like me and my boss, Bob Isler. Every ship is a power plant. So, it's a fairly common shared interest between us.
PUF: What led you to this position?
Jack Shriver: When I was retiring from the Navy, I reached out to folks I knew. I wanted to move back to Hawaii and I knew I wanted to get into the energy industry.
