Roger Smith

In 2014, while at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine, Roger Smith investigated the reality of New England’s clean energy transition and what is at stake for local communities. This brought him to rural Maine in the dead of winter to film “Battle Over Bowers Wind.” He also worked on climate and clean energy legislation as the co-director of Clean Water Action’s Connecticut office. Smith recently relocated to Japan and is documenting towns' efforts to incorporate clean energy into their post-Fukushima recoveries.
