Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center Paper ‘Energy in Maine’ Released

The status of energy production and use in Maine, and the major components of the state’s energy policy, are summarized in a new paper published today by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine. “Energy in Maine”, written by Policy Center research associate Catherine Dickerson, focuses on energy consumption and production in Maine, the state’s energy options, and its strengths and needs. The 34-page paper also outlines major considerations for Maine, including energy evolution as an economic development opportunity; investments in education, training and infrastructure to address changes in the state’s current energy mix; and the evaluation of trade-offs in relation to overall policy goals.
