About Dave Wilby

Dave has been working at the intersection of energy and natural resources issues and public affairs for more than 25 years. 

His background in the corporate world, consulting, and state and federal governments has given him both the technical knowledge and on-the-ground experience to deliver strategies that build value for clients.

As a vice president for two leading renewable energy companies, Dave led state-level government relations in a wide range of markets across the U.S.  He also played a key role in federal policy related to grid-scale renewables.  His role included policy development and advocacy, stakeholder communications, regulatory strategy, external messaging, market development, and crisis management.  In this capacity, he had leadership roles in a wide range of industry associations at the state, regional, and national levels. 

Previously, Dave was executive director of a statewide trade association that represents the renewable power industry, and a consultant to businesses dealing with statewide and local referenda. He was also a staffer for both Maine Governor Angus S. King, Jr., and U.S. Senator William S. Cohen, where he developed an expertise in natural resource issues.  Dave has a degree from Bowdoin College, and is active with both statewide and local non-profit and youth organizations in Maine.
