Maura Healey on Energy & Oil



Make Massachusetts the climate innovation lab for the world

We will make Massachusetts the climate innovation lab for the world. We'll help Climate Tech companies not only start, but scale in Massachusetts--creating good jobs in the Climate Corridor we are building across our state. Our Climate Tech initiative will catalyze this growth into global leadership that benefits Massachusetts workers and communities. Already, we are leading the clean energy revolution.

Create a cabinet-level Climate Chief & electrify everything

Maura will create a cabinet-level Climate Chief who will be responsible for driving climate policy across every Massachusetts agency & ensuring that climate change is considered in all relevant decision-making. The state will lead by example by achieving net-zero emissions by 2030 across state operations and rapidly transitioning the state fleet to electric vehicles.

Maura will reinvigorate the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (CEC) to spur clean tech job growth. With its strong relationships in the private sector and with our world-class academic institutions, the CEC has helped boost the clean energy sector in Massachusetts, which has grown 68% since 2010, with over 100,000 people employed as of 2021.

In the next two decades, we need to electrify everything--including our buildings and transportation system. We can do this. Our state is home to industrious & innovative workers who can lead this swift transition. Doing so will create jobs, improve public health, & strengthen our economy.

Will harness all the levers in combating the climate crisis

We have never seen so much coming into the state in terms of funding as we do right now. I think there is an incredible opportunity to deploy that and think about it, particularly when it comes to climate--and I have said that I will be the most aggressive and insightful and innovative governor harnessing all the levers when it comes to combating the climate crisis right now. I've also talked about the economic imperative and opportunity that that provides--not just for jobs.
