Research for the Sustainable Development of Tidal Power in Maine


T Johnson, GB Zydlewski- Maine Policy Review Winter/Spring 2012

Summary
Generating electricity from Maine’s substantial tides has been a dream for generations. Today, as Teresa Johnson and Gayle Zydlewski describe, the state is poised for a new era in sustainable tidal-power development.A pilot project is already underway in the Cobscook Bay/Western Passage area near Eastport and Lubec. Tidal-power development presents technical, environmental, and social challenges, however, and the authors discuss how the Maine Tidal Power Initiative is working to develop a cooperative framework that integrates stakeholders, developers, and policymakers to tackle some of these challenges.
