Maine Audubon is hosting a four-part weekly series of virtual, educational presentations focused on issues related to the development of offshore wind in the Gulf of Maine. There is vast potential for offshore wind technology to play a big role in Maine’s pivot to green energy, but there are many unknowns about its impacts to wildlife and the environment. This session will cover issues related to the Gulf of Maine, with guest speaker Celena Cunningham, Deputy Director of the Governor’s Energy Office. Before joining GEO, Celina most recently was Vice President/Chief of Staff at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), where she worked on overarching strategy and policy for the solar industry. Before joining SEIA, Celina spent a decade in public service at the federal level handling energy and environmental issues, including in the U.S. Department of the Interior and as staff in the U.S. House of Representatives.
