The Mills’ administration has set a goal to make the state carbon-neutral by 2045, and to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. Turning to electricity for transportation and other energy consumption will play a significant role in reaching these targets. We’ll discuss what is meant by ‘electrification of everything,’ and what it would look like for the state infrastructure—as well as for individual consumers.

Panelists:
Fortunat Mueller, president & co-founder, Revision Energy
Dan Burgess, director, Governor's Energy Office for the State of Maine
Carlisle Tuggey, general counsel,Avangrid

VIP Caller:
Julie Rosenbach, sustainability director, City of South Portland

Jonathan was born in Monsey, New York. A field trip to Washington, DC when he was in 7th grade started him on his circuitous path to a career in public radio. The trip inspired a love of politics and led to his desire to one day call DC home. After graduating from Grinnell College, he worked on a couple of campaigns in Iowa (presidential and congressional) and moved to Washington, DC.
