One Climate Future Events:
Offshore wind presents a generational economic and energy opportunity for Maine. As an abundant source of clean and renewable energy, offshore wind has the potential to help free Maine from its over-reliance on fossil fuels and to curb climate-altering emissions & protect our state’s environment for future generations. The Governor’s Energy Office knows that Maine is an ideal place to responsibly develop offshore wind. Maine’s Offshore Wind Roadmap is a stakeholder-driven development plan that offers an analysis of how Maine’s communities, fisheries, and ecosystems can realize economic, energy, and climate benefits from offshore wind.
On June 13th, the Portland Sustainability Office hosted Stephanie Watson, Maine Offshore Wind Program Manager with the Governor’s Energy Office and Bill Needelman, Portland Waterfront Coordinator to lead a conversation about Maine’s Offshore Wind Roadmap and how offshore wind would diversify Maine’s energy sources to reduce fossil fuel dependence and emissions, as well as help Maine meet its goal of 100% renewable energy by 2040.
