Maine has a diverse mix of energy sources – biomass, hydro, wind, solar, and now tidal – but petroleum, in its various liquid and gaseous forms, dominates the energy market with about 70% of heating and nearly 100% of our transportation needs. Issues related to petroleum use, such as an upcoming pipeline referendum, environmental protection, and concerns about climate change are frequent in Maine’s press and policy circles.See event page
