What does the future hold? During Governor Mills' campaign, there was a clear focus on climate change initiatives, growing clean energy resources, and strategic electrification of the transportation sector, among other related goals. With Governor Mills' new administration, leadership transitions in the Department of Environmental Protection, a soon-to-be Office of Policy Innovation & The Future, and a variety of new policymakers in the Legislature, we will experience a transformation of environmental and energy initiatives here in Maine.
As a new administration begins its work, what will be its priorities? Will climate change mitigation and clean energy development remain a focus? Will it tackle transportation with 21st century solutions? Will the Legislature mirror these efforts?
