The OTEC foundation team was shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Guy Toyama, a renowned champion of renewable energy, a Blue Revolutionist, an accomplished entrepreneur, and Executive Director of the Friends of NELHA.
When we started building the OTEC foundation, Guy was the first to share with us that he loved our idea to start a collaborative initiative to raise global awareness for OTEC. A few months earlier he organized the first OTEC summit at NELHA involving many key players from industry and US government. We were looking forward to work together with Guy on a number of ideas that we shared.
This Friday, a Memorial Service for Guy will be held in Kona, Hawaii. Here, at the other side of the planet that Guy loved so much, he will be remembered too.
