Ted led energy planning, shaping of the state’s approach to renewable energy permitting and facilitation, the state hydrogen program, the greenhouse gas emission reduction task force, energy assurance planning, and other strategic initiatives and programs. In 2010, Peck re-entered the private sector where he continued to focus on reducing the state’s dependency on fossil fuel through transformation, recapitalization, and the use of renewable energy, with a continued emphasis on microgrids and distributed assets. He was a leader in an attempt to recapitalize Hawaiian Energy Industries, which was imitated by Nextera. He has successfully negotiated over 50 power purchase agreements. He is a seasoned expert in energy management and understands the unique challenges of Hawaii’s energy landscape and the value that efficiency and renewable energy brings to the islands he calls home.
Peck is a retired Navy nuclear submarine officer and earned a Bachelor of Science in physics from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. At Johnson Controls, he led the Solutions team that closed the largest performance contract in the company's history, a $150M retrofit of the 12 airports of the State of Hawaii. As a Principal at Booz Allen Hamilton, he opened the Honolulu office and led it through 40% CAGR growth in its first five years. In 2004, he was named a “Forty Under 40” by Pacific Business News and in 2006 became a Pacific Century Fellow. Peck was selected as one of state’s “20 Leaders For the Next 20 Years” by Hawai‘i Business Magazine in 2010.
