Dagher interviewed by Maine Public about offshore wind energy development

Maine Public spoke with Habib Dagher, founding executive director of the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine, about the efforts to push the development of offshore wind energy in the Gulf of Maine by leasing areas to offshore wind developers. Officials at the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management outlined their plans for handling Gov. Janet Mills’ proposed 16-square-mile lease site for the research array on May 18, when they convened a task force of officials from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and tribal governments to consider the next phase in the push to stand up a new “green” industry off the shores of Northern New England. Connecticut Public Radio shared the Maine Public report.
