HALLOWELL, Maine (AP) — Republican Gov. Paul LePage will address lawmakers, business leaders and environmentalists gathering to discuss regional energy issues this week.

LePage is expected to deliver the opening remarks at the Environmental & Technology Council of Maine's annual forum in conjunction with the Maine State Chamber of Commerce on Thursday.

The event will focus on a number of issues, including diversifying Maine's energy supply portfolio and public investments in energy infrastructure.

LePage's remarks will be followed by several panel discussions with industry experts, including Tom Welch, chairman of Maine's Public Utilities Commission. Others expected to participate in discussions include Eric Johnson of ISO New England and Sean Mahoney, executive vice president of the Conservation Law Foundation.
