Resilient communities are forged by overcoming challenges, and the coast of Maine is no stranger to challenge. The passion, energy, and ingenuity we bring to the challenges we face is unrivaled. We work alongside Maine’s 120 island and coastal communities to help them address these unique challenges, so that they can thrive and lead as examples of sustainability.
With a strong history of helping island communities with weatherization and community energy projects, we're exploring energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities as one important path to increasing climate and economic resilience in our along our state’s working waterfronts.
Island and coastal communities are on the front line of the impacts associated with sea level rise, a persistent and long-term problem. Our Sea Level Rise team conducts research and outreach to engage and assist coastal and island community leaders in adapting to climate change.
