Maine Public’s ‘Speaking in Maine’ runs Dagher’s Mainebiz conference keynote

“Speaking in Maine,” a public affairs lecture series hosted by Maine Public, ran a keynote address by Habib Dagher, executive director of the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine. Dagher’s address from the Mainebiz “Conference on Maine Energy & How to Build an Economy Around the Energy Industry” discussed Maine’s potential to be a leader in the wind industry. Maine has the necessary deep-water ocean resources and plenty of wind within a 50-mile radius of the coastline, but wind alone couldn’t power the state, said Dagher, who compared Maine to Denmark and its partial use of wind power.
