Blueprint for a Zero Carbon Economy: Achieving Maine's Climate Goals

Achieving the emissions reductions goals of the Maine Climate Council hinges on dramatically reducing reliance on fossil fuels -- not just for home heating, but in all sectors of the Maine economy. It relies on a large-scale shift from fossil fuels to an expanded electricity grid powered mainly by new renewables. Panelists, who are experts in the field with both supporting and opposing viewpoints, will lay out what is needed in terms of investment and structure, including solar, wind, energy storage development, as well as the accompanying policy measures required, to achieve the enacted goals.

Join E2Tech for an in-depth, detailed exploration of possible pathways to a fossil fuel free economy and whether the approach is reasonable, achievable and economical.
