E2Tech Forums & Events

E2Tech provides a monthly forum series (Sept-June) that seeks to provide timely information about Maine's clean technology sector. E2Tech also hosts periodic networking events to foster business-to-business opportunities within Maine's clean tech economy. Additionally, preceding each forum, a 45 minute block of time is reserved for networking. We hope you can join us.

    December Forum & Holiday Reception:
    Wake Up! A Convenient Forum on
    Climate Change & RGGI

    4:00 - 5:30 p.m. Climate Change & RGGI Forum
    5:30 - 7:30 p.m. E2Tech Holiday Reception

    The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) is driving clean energy innovation in the Northeast while enabling states to achieve their climate goals cost effectively. 

    RGGI's market-based system reduces carbon pollution from power plants and invests its revenues for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, including more than $50 million in Maine programs alone. These dollars leverage tens of millions more to help residents and businesses save money through weatherization and other improvements to their homes, buildings, and factories. 

    RGGI's nine states are currently reviewing the program and considering changes to further cut emissions by 2030. With the right policy framework in place, we can achieve significant emissions reductions while continuing to grow the economy and create jobs. With the wrong adjustments, we may fall further behind in developing the technologies needed to slow climate change, achieve energy security, and transform our economy. 

    This forum examines RGGI's cap-and-trade system and how it works; evaluates RGGI's performance so far; looks at the role RGGI plays in achieving state greenhouse gas reduction and energy savings goals; and weighs revisions and alternatives for the future.

    Speakers Include:

    • Dan Allegretti - Vice President, State Government Affairs - East, Constellation, an Exelon Company
    • Kathleen Meil – Marketing & Customer Relations Manager, Evergreen Home Performance
    • Peter Shattuck – Director, Clean Energy Initiative, Acadia Center

    State of the Environment:
    Maine DEP Commissioner Paul Mercer
    & Senior Management Team

    E2Tech is inviting Maine's Air, Land, Water, and Waste leaders from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to give us the "State of the Environment" in Maine. 

    What are the trends in environmental quality? What regulatory actions are making a difference and what's new on the horizon? What are emerging contaminants and issues of concern?

    We are also interested in how the DEP assists businesses through the state regulatory maze to promote jobs and businesses in the environmental services sector.

    Maine Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Paul Mercer will introduce all members of DEP's Senior Management Team (including Regional Office Directors), their responsibilities at the agency, and their priorities for the coming years. Senior management will then be available to field questions and to obtain input from attendees. 


    • Paul Mercer, Commissioner
    • Melanie Loyzim, Dpt. Commissioner
    • Marc Cone, Air Bureau Director
    • Mark Bergeron, Land Bureau Director
    • Micky Kuhns, Water Bureau Director
    • Dave Burns, Remedation and Waste Management Bureau Director
    • David Madore, Communications Director
    • Tina Zabierek, Policy Director
    • Bill Longfellow, Innovation and Assistance Director
    • Marybeth Richardson, Southern Maine Regional Office Director
    • Susanne Miller, Eastern Maine Regional Office Director
    • Nick Archer, Northern Maine Regional Office Director
